Helmut Newton’s Menacing Marais 1971

I must admit I’m not a huge 70’s aficionado.

I did go through a stage at university wearing long indian dresses, 70’s flares from Camden market and this ill-fitting sheepskin coat – but generally it isn’t my favourite style era.

However, my mother in law gave me this 1971 Harper’s & Queen, and I must say this beautiful runway edit, shot by Helmut Newton in the Marais, has me re-thinking the 70’s. I love the prints and scarfs.

I’d love to know the story-board behind this shoot, what with rather tentative looking models, body-less mannequins in the background and scarves over the eyes. There’s definitely something going down!

Sounds like something from The Shining!

Style wise it’s a beauty – thank you Patty for the inspiration.
