What a Rip Off

1970s, lothar schmid, Vogue, zandra rhodes

If you haven’t a rag to your name, there is now Zandra Rhodes’ jersey, ripped, slashed and blue’stitched into her personal view of punk. She calls it “conceptual chic”. In style she thinks it is the first time the seventies have shown themselves. It is no holds barred style.

Mean streak of black jersey, this page, and another, opposite T-shirt shape under ragged tunic. All with blue cotton stitching, chains, ball bearings, safety pins, random diamante. All from Zandra Rhodes ; The Zandra Rhodes Shop at Harrods. Jersey by Racine. Very high heel gold sandals, Manolo Blahnik for Zapata. Hair by Fabian at Jean Louis David.

Relax You’re Looking Good

1970s, cosmopolitan, disco, Lotus, Rock Follies, shoes, Swanky Modes, Vintage Adverts

Something of a Rock Follies influence here, plus I’m pretty sure that’s a Swanky Modes dress on the left.

(Tag yourself, I’m the Kiss Me t-shirt and Hussar boots…)

Women Who Know

Les femmes décidées vont jusqu’au bout… Jusqu’au Parfum.

Just a pretty flawless aesthetic which I felt needed to be noted.

Emerald green pullover in pure wool, with multicoloured flying parrot, John and Molly Dove for Jasper, £8.40.

The knitwear industry has at long last pulled its needles out and has amazed us all with the most brilliant, zappy knits ever. One-colour sweaters have gone back where they came from—now you need at least three colours, and the brightest, most startling design you can find. Take your pick from oozing cream buns, bold geometric stripes and pyramids and all kinds of technicolour patterns—why leave parrots to the pet shops?

Sheer Romanticism

Lovely things in Leather

1970s, anello and davide, Barney Bosshart, Diego, Frances Stuart, Harpers Bazaar, Inspirational Images, pablo and delia

A new model — and her way of wearing knickerbockers : Frances Stuart, above, is a cousin of Sally Chrichton-Stuart, wife of the Aga Khan, though it is a bit mean to say so as she would rather her name were not connected with her family: she wants to make her own way as a model. She is 17, and although she has only been at it for 6 months has already been chosen as a model for Mary Quant’s latest collection — a perceptive choice if she looked as good as a Ginger Grouper as she does here in her currently favourite outfit: panne velvet skinny puff-sleeved jacket, low-necked to show off her choker, and knickerbockers teamed with shoes laced up above the ankle — a decorative alternative with chopped-off trousers to the ubiquitous boot. Red and mustard suede choker, centred with a bead, and the red and blue butterfly choker on her arm, are by Pablo and Delia. Suit, Diego, 12gns at Topaz, W1; Latters, Glasgow. Red shoes, £3 15s from Anello & Davide; Berkshire’s yellow tights. Hair Aaron at Sissors.

Lovely things in leather: Pablo and Delia, originally painters from Buenos Aires, only came to London from New York 6 months ago, but in that short space of time have made their name as the creators of fabulous scenic belts, chokers, wrist-bands, bags, and other leather accessories including berets — see the beautifully stitched and painted beret shown below, again worn, with another of their leather chokers, by Frances Stuart. Their leather works of art are at Browns, Thea Porter (for whom they make special items), Feathers, and The Shop in Sloane Street. In the future they are hoping to branch out and make other things, including dresses, staying on in London rather than returning to New York because they like it better: ‘it’s more human-sized’.
