When did we get so prudish about ladies nipples? This beautiful image was a double page advert in a mainstream magazine in 1975, and apparently also used in the packaging, but people have their Instagram accounts deleted and Facebook posts censored for far less in 2014.

Mombasa, Kenya. A Beautiful, private beach. Warm, too. Ideal for sunbathing and swimming in the raw. But few of us are that lucky! We have to make do with crowded beaches and need a cover-up – like a one-piece. Difficult to be sexy? Not really, with these beautiful fabrics, beautiful shapes. These pages, shot in Kenya, prove our point. The one-piece does give you lots of man-appeal – and freedom. Beachrobes can be sexy, too. In fact, the ones we found are a definite plus! So check out your wardrobe – and welcome summer. This can be your year to add originality to those busy beaches.

All shoes by Yves Saint Laurent
Skyscraper heels announce a new, more refined shape for shoes in 1974. All the leading shoe designers endorse this feeling, though the heel heights vary. Yves Saint Laurent, that king of trendsetters, picks these – the highest. Thick platforms, the only real fashion story of the 70s so far, are out.

Underwear from The Last Picture Frock
Illustrating an article entitled “Is This The Greatest Sexual Fantasy of Them All?” about the character of Molly Bloom from James Joyce’s Ulysses. The underwear comes from The Last Picture Frock, which was a hire firm/boutique started by the late Shirley Russell (wife of and costume designer for the late, great Ken Russell) using her vast stock of antique clothing and costumes. Her stock would later be bought by Angels, so who know where those clothes have ended up!

In the Fifties a trip to the hairdresser’s was a daunting ordeal – for you and for each hair on your head. Vidal Sassoon changed all that in 1964, and substituted the welcome breeziness of the blow-drying second-generation stylists. Who are the other top hairdresses, and who goes to them?
There are no credits for the clothes, but I think Marianne’s glorious ensemble must be a Bill Gibb, and Sian Phillips’s elegant coat looks like a John Bates to me. Such a glorious array of celebs, I think Michaeljohn win on numbers (but Ricci Burns really ought to win, purely because of the way his ladies are dressed!).
