Kensington Girl

Kensington girl - Gerhard E Ludwig - 1974

While looking for pictures typical of ‘Young Swinging London’ (did such a place ever exist?) Ludwig found this girl in a Kensington shop.

No specific location credit but it looks like it’s probably Biba.

Welcome Summer

Gladrags printed shirt with cotton satin knickerbockers. Plastic and raffia choker by Adrien Mann. Gladrags cotton satin shorts with bib.

Just a quick glance at any of these new mid-year fabrics can lead to all sorts of sunny ideas. Will you take to squashysoft quilting or fall in love with countryside madras printed denim and shiny new satinised cotton? For the romantic there’s beautiful embroidered lawns and more than enough nostalgia in the turn-of-the-century jacquard crepes, woven on precisely the same machines as those of sixty summers past. All ready for you to wear tomorrow — or to keep aside for that long hot summer . . .
