vintage modes for moderns






I nearly died when I discovered these vintage fashion illustrations from the 60s/70s last week. They were created for a regular segment called "Mad Mad Modes for Moderns." The swing in fashion week seems to be leaning towards Mod, so what better time to share some scans from my new fave resource, sequential crush , than now. check out her website for more teen crushes, young romance, and fashion blasts from the past.

oh summer where art thou?


i was perusing the stacks of seventeen mags from the early 70's yesterday, flipping through old summer issues, and saw tons of ads for marvelously, old school bobbie brooks bathing suits and clothes. the prints were petalled and polkadotted in every color of the rainbow. the magazines were loaded with amazing illustrated fashion and beauty spreads by thea kliros, sheila camera, garie blackwell, kathy orr, jack litt, and more. ill have to hunt down and post some images of their work. every page was magic.
