In an interview published in WOMEN’S WEAR DAILY in 1983, Walter Albini explained: “I like the period from 1925 to 1935. Because I believe it was the decade in which all aspects of human existence were revolutionized. Classical examples the boyish haircut, the skirts that have shortened more and more, the elimination of corsets, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda, Garbo and Dietrich, Bauhaus and the Art-Decò. Changes in music, dance, painting, architecture and lifestyle have been epochal and widespread to such an extent that even today we are living the results of those experiences“.
