Mad Men fashion must-haves
Big Mad Men fan? Then chances are you're addicted to more than the show -- the prim, perfect 1960s fashion pieces are positively stunning. Steal the look and add a modern twist with these fashion must-haves.
It's an Emmy- and Golden Globe award-winning television drama about to close its third season -- and now it's a fashion phenomenon. Mad Men, the critically acclaimed television drama about an ad agency in the 1960s, has spawned fashion fever.
From TV to the runway to the malls
Top American designer Michael Kors launched an entire Fall collection last year inspired by the decade and now '60s inspired items are flying off the shelves at Macy's, Bloomingdales and Banana Republic. Even Oprah kicked off her 2009 season with a show dedicated to Mad Men, where the audience dressed up in their '60s best.
Bringing back elegance and sophistication
Mad Men is about Sterling Cooper, a fictional advertising agency with heavy hitter and suave ad man Don Draper, portrayed by Jon Hamm. The show also features young copy writers, account executives and busy assistants. Think gloves, ladylike dresses, polished oxfords, fedoras – everything you don't see much in today's fashion repertoire. Well, until Mad Men brought it all back.
