Inspirational Illustrations: Jean Muir, 1969

muir bazaar oct 1969

Jean Muir thinks… then designs… and creates a fashion role of pure allure. Enter the Intellectual Seductress. Panther-like grace in a long, lean look. Colours sombre, yet potent, slithered clotsely over the body. Eve, circa 1970, wittily playing serpentine print against the real thing.

Inspirational Images: Days of the boater, the blazer and the beautiful young man

1929: Days of the boater, the blazer and the beautiful young man. White was the rage. That year Harper's Bazaar said, 'White, of course, we always have with us.' We still have. In Deauville and on the Cap d'Antibes, beach pajamas were the thing. Now trousers go everywhere. Ken Scott's white crêpe trouser suit, single breasted over wide pants with turn-ups; to order at Fortnum & Mason. Graham Smith's white buckled turban; £21 18s at Fortnum & Mason. White sandals; 8½ gns, Russell & Bromley.
