I think Lui may well be my new favourite magazine. Mad AND rude…

I am now the proud owner of ‘Chastity in Focus’, which was a book produced in 1980 by the Janet Reger underwear company to celebrate the photography of its catalogues. Janet Reger underwear was truly revolutionary at the time, mixing practicality and comfort (the bras are often non-wired and non-padded) with sensual silks and delicious, edible colours. No scratchy red and black nylon lace, no boring white cotton.
Many of the images are by Bob Carlos Clarke, who photographed the catalogue I already own, but I was blown away by some of the Duffy pictures. More to come soon. In the meantime, here’s the book’s dedication:
This book is dedicated to all those who worship the female form in all its gracefulness, who indulge in the joys of its inner sanctum and who are forever drawn by its promise of sensual ecstasy.
I also have some Janet Reger pieces for sale over at Vintage-a-Peel in my ‘loungerie’ section
What a photograph! There’s definitely some subtle nipple action going on there, but that logo is far too intrusive. Still, I couldn’t resist! Enjoy…
Expect more posts with more saucy Janet Reger catalogue goodness, but to begin with – Jilly Johnson.
(date unknown but I’m guessing ’79-’80)

“If you are not wearing jeans you must be over thirty,” says Renate Zatsch twenty-five-year-old German cover girl in her Dietrich accent. “Jeans are a way of life, who doesn’t wear them?” says her boyfriend Michael Calderon. Renate likes jeans that fit. These white cotton pop jeans are seamed ove rthe bottom to fit like flypaper, and the off the shoulder blouse is bursting out all over. “It’s a gas,” says Renate. Jeans and blouse £7 each by Anthony [sic] Price. His jeans £7.50, sweater £18 at Browns.
