Get away from it all

1960s, british boutique movement, granny takes a trip, Honey Magazine, Inspirational Images
After a hot hectic day, you need a change of pace. So slip into a soft slinky dress like this one, 9 gns., from Granny Takes a Trip, 488 King’s Road, London, SW10.

(I can’t find a photographer credit for this stunner, so my apologies to them.)

You can have a boy in every port

19 magazine, 1960s, Illustrations, michael roberts
You can have a boy in every port, if you pick the best of the army surplus tops – beige drill bush-jackets (trimmed with leather “sergeant stripes”), parachute silk shirts, and flannelette vests, plus canvas combat belts.

Kelly, 19’s imaginative whizz-kid artist, is inspired into a frenzy of sketching by the twenty-years-back look. The war is over now – but uniforms don’t only look good on men.

Kelly, of course, is a complete figment of 19’s imagination and these incredible illustrations are always signed by the great Michael Roberts.

Gold shoes for day, that’s for the birds.

1970s, chelsea cobbler, shoes, tessa traeger, Vintage Adverts, Vogue
High-heeled shoe on the thinnest of platforms; the heel, the toe and the lacing in shiny gold kid, the rest of the shoe in white kid. A natural progression from the glittery day clothes of winter. Some shoes are all gold, others combine gold with a multitude of contrasting colours. This shoe by Richard Smith for The Chelsea Cobbler. A golden shot in the arm for shoes.

What pinafores did next

Cotton print pinafore over a sweet flowered dress. Deep ruffles on shoulders and a big beautiful bonnet to match. By Titfers at Miss Selfridge. Red button shoes at Anello & Davide.

Long dresses and skirts in crepe and cotton prints – related to others just as small, fresh, sharp or soft, on pinafore smocks and aprons. These are not so much to keep you clean, more to make you look prettier; and you can be dairy maids, kitchen maids, Kate Greenaway girls all through summer.

And so began the kickback against all things clean, crisp and space age…

Shock proof knitwear?

19 magazine, 1970s, Inspirational Images, John Craig, knitwear, marshall lester, Vintage Adverts
Our Tricel disco test: Dressed in Tricel, a couple spent an energetic evening at a discotheque. Come going home time they both felt cool and comfortable despite the crowd. Marshall Lester tops to top the pops in. In a variety of super colours.

Some synthetic fibres become highly charged with static electricity. In a crowd you’ll find they stick to your body something shocking. Not so with man-made Tricel. It’s less static than most synthetics. It absorbs moisture. And because it breathes, it’s much more comfortable. Stick to Tricel. It won’t stick to you.

There’s little I love more than novelty acrylic knitwear, but novelty acrylic knitwear in a groovy scenario such as these, well I just feel spoilt quite frankly.

On Second Thoughts

19 magazine, 1970s, barbara hulanicki, biba, Inspirational Images, Sarah Moon, Vintage Editorials

For those dreamy moments when you feel you want to look feminine and pretty, when you want to get out of your casual clothes and wear something floaty and special, Biba have made lovely, plain satin and two-tone patchwork satin skirts and tops which are alluring and very glamorous for the summer. They have also designed long, floating cotton voile dresses in large, dark prints which are flattering to figures still suffering from seasonal over-eating.

All clothes from Biba.

Many thanks to Barbara Hulanicki for letting me know that she took these stunning photos (modelled by Eva from Biba). They were uncredited in the magazine.
