Pale violet nightdress from Browns.
A heavenly combination of slinky nightwear, mid-Seventies tech and a very welcoming looking bed arrangement. Oh, and Marie Helvin of course. This is very much how I would like to spend the next few weeks, months… in fact, a third of my life!

I had three reasons to buy this glorious book from 1979: the beautiful illustrations (which I will scan at a later date), a vague idea that it might be rather cool to start making Seventies-style lingerie and lastly, that the photos within are quite spectacular. Of course, my definition of spectacular is slightly different to many people, but there are plenty of levels on which you can enjoy them.

Janice Wainwright for Golden Charm. Advert scanned from Vogue, April 1969.
Excitement abounds! My new lingerie and loungewear section of the website is taking shape behind the scenes and I am particularly excited about an upcoming Janice Wainwright for Golden Charm ensemble, not entirely dissimilar to this one.
I’m more into lounging in loungewear around the house than in a restaurant, but I suppose one only knows what one knows. The fact is that in 1969, people were so well-dressed when they went to dinner that you could be truly outrageous by wearing your pyjamas. In an age when nobody gets dressed for anything, well that is when you need to shock by wearing your finest frocks.
