i think i got onto Jean Stories because i saw a pic of a nice bum in a nice pair of jeans somewhere. that’s how these things start, you know. good bums in good pairs of jeans are kind of everything. sort of like The Selby meets Freuden von Freunden meets Closet Story – but in denim. it was started by Jane Herman Bishop and Florence Kane, both fashion writers at Vogue.
most of the time i skip past editorials in fashion magazines because they simply don’t interest me all that much. it takes a lot to make me pause, and this ed from us vogue certainly did. what an odd pairing in daria werbowy and david straitharn, playing the journalist + artist in a ‘brief encounter’ on what is presumably his southwest ranch getaway slash artistic love nest. if you don’t get it yet, this is why grace coddington is so beloved. i mean, i still think ah fashion it’s really all so silly isn’t it – how many outfits does this chick wear for one interview? regardless, it made me smile.
the editorials from seventies vogue are driving me nuts, in a good way. cher as a cherokee!
this particular vogue looks like a cracker. a cracker!
long skirts, flared pants, corduroy. check. check.
michael douglas (!)
and this rad chick
i would have been very happy living in the seventies, i’ve decided. vogue scans from youthquakers
oh and anjelica huston, idol of note.
a man’s take on fashion – from little brown pen
can’t remember where i found these (probably tsf) – but they’re fantastico!
