Peter Pan Collar

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Remember those cute little dresses you wore in your baby photographs with a round flat collar- thats the peter pan collar.
Peter pan was a lovely character from the fairy tales who never wore a peter pan collar himself !

Well,that is something even I did not know until I found it out here.
The American stage production of J.M Barrie's play 'Peter Pan' in 1905 introduced this trend. A blouse with a similar collar was designed for this play's lead - Peter Pan.
In 1920s this style was incorporated in baby clothes and hence the 'innocence' that is still associated with this style.
Though i very much wonder why we ever had to let it go as we grew up.
Perhaps the designers never thought they would look good even on grown -ups!
I would've liked one for every new year! But its not late you know :)

I get this unexplainable itch every time i see a peter pan collar . I feel like grabbing every piece I come across.

I would love to share all the peter pan clothes i have in the coming posts :)

In this post I have done a Retro look with flared corduroy pants, a vintage Victorian pendant , white aviators , my favorite saddle bag and of-course a chiffon blouse with a black lace peter pan collar!

Do you like Peter-pan collars?
