We all love a good dose of inspiration, right? So thinking about that and remembering some pretty inspiring vintage/retro packages and labels I found at Lovely Package I decided to put this selection together. Some info: the word retro comes from the Latin prefix 'retro', meaning 'backwards' or 'in past times' (via Wikipedia), and we have to agree that the retro style was never so 'new' and trendy as it is today.

From packages to clothes, websites and furniture, the vintage/retro style is always around us, remembering us that for a long time design and style has been a big deal and also helping us learn and get some insights with 'past times' looks.

This selection contain some retro packages and labels. They were all gather from Lovely Package, so click at the images to know more about each design. Enjoy!
