1970s, british boutique movement, Cars, Great Gear Trading Co, Inspirational Images, sunday times magazine, Vintage Adverts

Superb advert for the MG Midget, photographed in front of The Great Gear Market at 85 Kings Road. Some of the best photos of boutiques have popped up, inadvertently, in adverts. From my archive there is Che Guevara in an Opel advert and Quorum for cigarettes.

It Takes Two

1970s, Anthony Horth, Cars, cosmopolitan, Renault, st honore, Vintage Adverts
Choose a man’s car that suits a woman’s taste … the NEW RENAULT 5. Choose a woman’s clothes that suit a man’s taste … clothes that are news from ST. HONORE. (Here a rock an’ roll number, £9.)

Thank goodness we’ve advanced beyond advertising copy like this, but personally I don’t think car design has advanced in a pleasant way beyond the 1970s so… you win some, you lose some.

Photographed by Anthony Horth.

Scanned from Cosmopolitan, November 1972.

…or four… if it’s a party. Cram in the Elvis discs and all the coke you’ll need. Just lift the tailgate – and fill … and fill … and fill. The NEW RENAULT 5 is the three-door car that suits the Seventies. The clothes are something else … frankly fun in Fifties style. Outfits £14 each by ST. HONORE.
…sometimes more. any girl with a license can play. That nifty little wardrobe-on-wheels … the NEW RENAULT 5 stocked to the sun-roof with ST. HONORE gear, £12.50, £12 and £9, is guaranteed to get any girl out of a traffic jam.
