Go plain crazy with Miners

19 magazine, 1970s, clowns, Hair and make-up, Make-up, Miners, Vintage Adverts
Miners want to make it plain. The right-now look is unglossy, unsparkly… unbelievable. Plain crazy make-up. Flat, matt colour for your eyes, lips and nails. New Shadomatic eye colour comes in a super dinky bottle. It’s a loose powder shadow and applicator all in one. And, like lipsticks and nail polish, you get a great line-up of unashamed, earthy colours. So stop clowning around, and go plain crazy.

Landscape with clothes

1970s, dorothee bis, Escalade, Inspirational Images, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, paris, sonia rykiel, vidal sassoon, Vintage Editorials, yves saint laurent
Two pretty girls on the steps of the Troccadero. The sweaters and flared, spotted skirts are by Dorothee Bis and are available to order in Britain from Escalade, 183-190 Brompton Road, London S.W.1

Jacques-Henri Lartigue, now aged 81, took his first photographs in 1902, the year that his father gave him a camera which he describes in his diary as “made of polished wood with a lens extension of green cloth with accordion folds”. He took these pictures of clothes’ from the Paris Ready-to-Wear collections last month when he revisited his old haunts — the Avenue du Bois de Boulogne and the Trocadero — where years ago he took his first evocative and tender pictures of the beautiful, fashion-able, eccentric and ridiculous women who caught his eye. Wrapped in his father’s splendid checked brown-and-beige overcoat he worked with surprising speed : totally sure, extremely agile once he flung himself to the ground to capture the angle he wanted. His wife Florette worked with him — pacing, standing in for the models and carrying his few items of gear which included one small leather box in which he once kept his first camera; it’s gone now, but his wife said he likes to carry the box “for good luck”. The results make the model girls look like part of the landscape instead of self-conscious cardboard figures.
