Baby Doll

Baby Doll advert - 19 Magazine - May 1969

Always delighted to see another Baby Doll advert, and this one is particularly fabulous – making more of a feature of the iconic logo girl than any other I’ve seen.

Sonia Rykiel, 1975

Always the same definite hand-writing, developed season after season, but such sure grasp of colour and how to make women look sexy that’s she’s become one of the most copied designers for knits and dresses. This spring, she continues her layered look, has a longer bodyline and belts to leave flying or tie under a gently bloused top. Milky pink sweater with long sleeves and small ties edged in raspberry, under pink mohair sweater with pink fine jersey culottes. The small-head look comes from tiny tight-fitting cap with strings. Palest aquamarine sweater with a frilled neckline and ties with matching flowers, worn with a fitting jersey skirt and the tight skull cap. Mulberry printed voile dress (opposite) with deep plain flounce at the hem, with a matching head-dress, held in place with a plaited woollen band like a sheik.

Live yourself up a little!

Bare your shoulders

All Dyed Up

All dyed up 6

Velvet tie-dye dress from Mr Freedom. Canvas boots from Biba.

All sorts of things are getting the tie and dye treatment this summer – and we bet it will colour our autumn too! It’s easy to tie-dye jeans and t-shirts, just tie a knot anywhere, grab a packet of dye, and you’re away! But the experts have been getting at everything so you can buy it already dyed – summer colour has hit jersey, velvet and gaberdine to. So get dyeing!
