Satin trousers, matching jacket, 17gns by Ossie Clark from Quorum

Above is the notorious Lamborghini suit, most famously worn by Twiggy. I honestly love everything from this editorial. Except that the Lamborghini suit doesn’t suit me at all, and I am speaking from bitter experience there.

    Prada much? Miuccia may set trends but she didn’t invent anything. Everything here is a là mode today… ^_^

    Ditto MissPeelpants.
    OMG you’re so right about the Terry de Havilland rip offs! Just looked it up and my jaw dropped…

      Gosh, they are! I own two pairs of Miu Miu Snakeskin platforms from their 2003/4 season and now I know where the idea came from! Stunned. Exact copies.

    Can someone explain “dungarees”? In the U.S. it means “jeans” which doesn’t look to be the case here. Thanks!

    • Dungarees are often denim (see Dexy’s Midnight Runners in full on ‘Come on Eileen’ mode…) but can be any fabric, they are trousers with a pinafore tab at the front, attached by straps to the back. Hope this helps!
