Sylvie Vartan was a french pop singer also known as a yé-yé artist of the 1960s. I am still completely obsessed with 60s style and want every single cute collared dress in her wardrobe now please!
Just saw Pierrot Le Fou. How have I missed it until now? Now I’m obsessed with dressing in primary colours.
Recently I saw La Piscine and was super inspired by the fashion, set design and overall mood of the film. I definitely recommend! The movie also has Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin in it who are great style icons worth googling for style ideas if you’ve not already.
Finally it feels like Spring. This collection of images includes three style icons of the early 1900s – Maude Fealy, Evelyn Nesbit and Lily Elsie, several photos taken in the period of my favourite spring activities (picnicing, fairs, zoo visits, botanical garden trips, May Day celebrations) and some of the natural history artwork of Ernst Haeckel.
Many of these images are of Pina Bausch, who was a German dancer that was very influential in the 1970s in the world of modern dance. I watched a documentary on her awhile ago and was amazed and inspired. You should definitely see it – Pina (2011).
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with vintage underwater fashion photography and otherworldly-looking sea creatures. I hope you enjoy my mixed compilation.
Penelope Tree is an English model who was first discovered by Diane Arbus at age 13 and is most well known for her work in the 1960s for vogue magazine and photographers such as Richard Avedon and Cecil Beaton. John Lennon once famously described her as “hot, hot, hot, smart, smart, smart”. Her unique beauty and individual personal style made her an It girl of the generation.
