Inspirational Editorials: At the Palace of the Maharajah

isseymiyake1

Brilliantly coloured acrylic dresses by Japanese designer Issey Miyake live up to the magnificent setting of the Rambagh Palace Hotel in Rajasthan, once the home of the Maharajah of Jaipur. Creases fall out before your very eyes, the material swirls out in movement and in repose, falls flatteringly close to the body.

Shoes by Charles Jourdan. Photographed by Packy Cannon.

Scanned by Miss Peelpants from Harpers and Queen, April 1976.

    Wow these outfits would not look out of place today. Hail Miyake. They still look fresh and are further proof that there’s nothing new under the sun in fashion. I’ve seen many equivalents especially on the recent Milan Fashion Week runways.

    Fabulous proof that comfort and glamour don’t have to be enemies. Gorgeous spread and I want all of it…
