Inspirational Editorials: Take Cover

take cover - vanity fair - november 1968 - david stafford - foale tuffin

Warm and cuddly coat to brave a winter’s night. Belted and snug double-breasted fur fabric maxi-style to wear over anything except gala gear. Great with trousers. Foale and Tuffin, 18gns long or 16gns short. Long white kid boots by Anello and Davide, 12gns.

Nothing is more depressing than dolling yourself up to the nines – and putting an everyday coat over your party hear. Mink stoles are too ageing for words and short coats over long dresses look awful.

Dress by Miss Mouse. Shoes by Anello and Davide.

I think it’s fair to say that us Brits went a bit Snoopy-crazy in 1976, from what I’ve read and seen, and this adorable editorial is the perfect example of the post-modern appropriation of childhood cartoon figures by fashionable adults in the Seventies (see also Mr Freedom and Miss Mouse). Of course, there are clothes from Miss Mouse and Lee Bender’s Bus Stop – which is similar to the notorious ‘Andy Pandy’ dungaree outfit worn by Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who.

Currently inspiring me (as someone who doesn’t enjoy stripping off in the much-awaited heat…) is this photoshoot from Honey, April 1970. Pretty much perfection, as far as I am concerned. Astonishingly, there is no credited photographer for any of the photoshoots in this magazine, so I’m afraid they will have to remain anonymous…
