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!

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.

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.
