And more recently on every fashionista who can afford a Balmain SS09 jacket:While I, (along with the rest of the fashion loving world) adore these Balmain jackets, I have to say, if presented with the choice between owning a Christopher Decarnin interpretation, or an original 19th century uniform, historical accuracy would win out.
Check out these amazing uniforms. I particularly love Prussian Hussar outfits.
Hussar Officer uniform, date unknown.
Prussian Lieb Hussar Officer, 1813 - Front
British 6th Regiment of Foot Bandsmen, 1806 - Front
This one makes my head spin. Those crazy foot bandsmen!
