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.

…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.

Brighter and brighter, the new brand of knits is coming. Bolder than ever, with huge batwing sleeves, flaring kimono arms and rainbow stripes. Piled on top of one another or over a striking shirt – without any doubt the greatest knits ever seen.
I don’t know about you, but clown and circus-influenced editorials are one of my favourite themes and really quite a staple of the late Sixties and early Seventies youth magazine boom.
