Jean Harlow is the inspiration behind our beloved Harlow set. Our Paris Satin Wash two piece set is so glamorous, we imagine it would have been a part of Jean's extensive wardrobe of silky satin treasures.
Jean Harlow was a popular American film actress and sex symbol of the 1930s most known for her beautiful platinum hair and 1920s eyebrows.
Harlow was signed by director Howard Hughes, and her first major appearance was in Hell's Angels (1930), followed by a series of critically unsuccessful films before she signed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1932. Harlow became a leading lady for MGM, starring in a string of hit films, including Red Dust (1932), Dinner at Eight (1933), Reckless (1935), and Suzy (1936). Harlow's popularity rivaled and soon surpassed that of her MGM colleagues Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer. By the late 1930s, she was one of the biggest movie stars in the world. Often nicknamed the "Blonde Bombshell" and the "Platinum Blonde"; she was also popular for her "Laughing Vamp" movie persona. Harlow's life may have been cut short but her style lives on forever!
