1970’s

what i love most about these photos is that for all you know they could have been taken today, until you look a little bit closer and notice tiny details that are truly seventies. they are from the collection of lisa ann wilson, “unearthed never-before-seen box of photos taken of / by my mother in the early 70s”

gucci’s corduroy

did all the designers of the world flip a switch of some magical machine that travels across the ocean and reads my brain waves? because they’re hitting all the right notes for the new collections. i mean, i don’t even like gucci… usually. these are three looks from their pre-fall 2011 collection that i love. that green get-up is amazing  – except for the bag. still can’t get the bags right, gucci.

dudes on bikes

i totally fall for the stereotype of a certain type of man on a motorbike (and i’m talking a certain kind of motorbike, too) denim, leather, boots, scruffy facial hair –  i mean really. badass.

Les Demoiselles D’Hamilton

david hamilton is a british photographer best known for his dreamy photographs of young women. much of his work has been criticised for being ‘pornographic’ and is particularly controversial because the women in his photographs are seemingly rather young. i wouldn’t say his work is any more risque than stuff coming from terry richardson or many modern day photographers (and it’s far more subtle for that matter) … but then again, i’m not the porno police.
