What’s current life without some typical vintage meets present vibes? Vintage fashion and style are hotter than ever. When it comes to music, old has ofcourse always been gold.

A few videoclips and their old Hollywood inspiration resource…
1. Band Wagon – Girl Hunt, 1953 | Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal, 1988
My favorite. A lot of similarities but at the same time both videoclips have a personal twist. Same outfit, same atmosphere, very different dance style in two different era.
