Rumble 59 – Rockabilly Store

Rumble 59 Rockabilly Store

Today’s fast paced and technology driven world makes many wish for the times of face to face contact instead of Facebook and sending letters instead of Email. This nostalgia springs from the belief that the past was a simpler time when men were suave and charming and women were innocent and well-behaved.

Rumble59_logo

However, there is no need to idolize the past when one can embrace the true spirit of days gone by with Rumble 59. This German retailer shows the past as the rebellious and edgy climate it really was, and all designs embody the rockabilly lifestyle.

Women do not have to wait for a jock to give them a letterman jacket anymore when they can purchase their own. Ladies who want a casual and vintage outfit for the daytime can pair the jacket with a high quality printed shirt from the Rockabilly Rebel line and be ready for lounging at the diner with milkshakes or taking a ride on a motorcycle.

Rumble 59 also has looks for those who love pin-up and rockabilly styles. Women can be beautiful and feminine while still able to rock with everything from denim pencil skirts with clean lines and a snug fit to tight striped shirts that show off a woman’s assets.

rockabilly shirts

Both men and women can enjoy the line of denim Rumble 59 produces because it is not artfully distressed, torn, ripped or otherwise modified in the name of fashion. Store bought imperfections are fake, but this denim is genuine. Wearers will have to earn faded denim and flaws in the material by getting dirty, partying and living fearlessly.

rockabilly jeans

Greasers, ruffians and moonshiners can enhance their outfits with accessories like flasks, switch blade inspired combs, bold belt buckles and more. Whether drag racing with a bandana or finishing a perfectly styled hairdo with a checkered headband, Rumble 59 ensures you look rockabilly chic from head to toe.

rockabilly accesoires

There is no need to idolize the past when it is possible to find beauty in classic rock idols, old school street gangs and smoky lit bars. Rumble 59 brings the past back with these glamor meets grunge outfits that should never go out of style.

Frozen Hibiscus came to be in 2007 spawned by Claudia’s fascination with all the vintage fashions from the 1920s through the 1960s and from these styles she bases her collections.




The 1920s collection brings to mind the nascent years of Hollywood glamour paired with the androgynous styles of that time, like the flapper outfit “Thalia” featuring an embroidered satin cream shirt and elegant kimono paired with brown velvet pants and the masculine “Fay” complete with trousers, blouses and tie and hinged cuffs embroidered with to an exquisite and a stylized design.




The “Tiki” gallery of the Rock-A-Hula line is filled with Berlin mermaids sporting pencil skirts of the 1950s, wide-leg, high-waisted, side-buttoning pants of the 1940s and tree meet wiggle halter dresses like the “Reef”, made from fabrics with colorful patterns of flowers and butterflies create a Hawaiian dream.



The 50s Sweethearts gallery on the Frozen Hibiscus site has clothing appropriate for pin up darlings like the “Lagoon” a pale blue sleeveless top paired with the ”Sailor” swing skirt in white with a double line of pale blue ribbon circling the hem, and outfits best for rockabilly ladies like the back-buttoning, tight-fitting “Cherry” Corsage top, in strapless fitted black satin with double cherries embroidered on the lower waist and topped with a fringe of red frill perfectly paired with a black straight skirt.


Under accessories you find the charmingly campy coconut purse, made from the actual shell of this tropical fruit and a simple wrapped-rope strap, a classic purse with curved bamboo handles made with ‘Aloha” fabric complete with mini-hula girls in perfect Tiki style.



Frozen Hibiscus is available to the public in as their Berlin shop “Mixed Pickles” from Wednesdays through Saturdays and by appointment and Ms. Urbanek will also accept privately commissioned custom orders.
