Dandy Fashion: Les Assassins du Bodygraph - lancent le prêt - à - choquer 1967 (part one)

Part one of a fantastic editorial originally published in 1967, which pays homage to those who were determined to step out in true 'peacock style' regardless of the general conformity in menswear that still surrounded them at the time. The original article is in French, so, I shall refrain from doing the language an injustice by attempting to translate the introduction to the piece and particularly any of the quotes from Baudelaire or François de La Rochefoucauld via Google Translate. Thankfully, the photographs are strong enough to speak for themselves, there are definitely some superb examples of dandy finery on display here!

                                                      Gérard Silvi, modéliste, habillé par Dean.

                                          Jean Manuel Guyader, art director, habillé par Renoma.

                                                       Gilles Rimbault, peintre, Habillé par Cardin.

                                                                       Pablo Mesejean, peintre.

  1. Wow! I like Gilles' spacesuit. I bet it come s with a big fishbowl helmet and would make quite the impression on the most luxurious interstellar cruise.
