De Havillands in Casablanca

After my Hollywood Clothes Shop post the other day, what should I find in a January 1971 (I am a geek on so many different levels…) copy of 19 Magazine but this amazing Forties-styled shoot. I actually aspire to this entire look so badly I want to cry just looking at it.

The amazing snakeskin and suede shoes throughout the shoot are credited to ‘Rowley and Oram’ (which, itself, is quite odd since I assumed that ‘label’ became defunct when Hollywood Clothes Shop opened…), which we can now all assume means that these shoes are by the amazing Mr Terry De Havilland. I’m not sure at what point his name became much coveted, but it’s interesting that he should be so badly uncredited here.

    I'm soo with you on this look for gals and guys. I would wear every piece, and don't start me on the shoes…. you know my weakness for Terry's.

    Mmmmm, I'll take the purple dress please (and the hips to go with it)

  3. MyStyle says:

    Hi there-very inspirational and totally covetable looks, love these outfits x

  4. Every look is a winner here. I love the 70s curls-piled-on-top-of-head thing. Why has that never been revived?

    Oooh, I love that purple dress in the top pictures. So gorgeous!

  6. Super cool série, j'adore, Stéphane, Paris
