Crepe skirt and printed chiffon blouse both at Quorum. Pink patent shoes at Elliott. Tights from Bus Stop.
If you are prepared to forsake the mini this summer for the midi or maxi, you will find that designers have compensated for covering the legs by boldly slashing the skirts at the front, the back and the sides. Photographed at The Chelsea Drug Store.
This is a fascinating editorial for a few reasons. Firstly it is photographed at the legendary Chelsea Drug Store, showing off the incredible interior to perfection. It singularly fails to credit Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell with their garments for Quorum (an odd oversight given their fame at the time…). It is also a glorious insight into the mini/midi/maxi debate of 1970 and shows us the transition between late Sixties style and the early Seventies. The clothes are familiar as early Seventies, but the shoes are not yet platform and still stuck in a low block heel.

It’s safe to say that many people erroneously think that they were amongst the first to ‘do vintage’. Well, newsflash, you’re not. And neither were the stallholders at the Chelsea Antique Market, although perhaps they thought they were too. It’s the circle of [fashion] life.
Personally, I enjoy knowing I am part of a rich tapestry of people who liked wearing second hand clothing throughout history, and no amount of cheap journalism using vintage clothes in a cynical way will ever make me feel otherwise. You either ‘get it’ or you don’t…
