the pretty peasants of provence

January 15, 2017 in photo play by editor

From the Spring 1977 issue of L’Officiel ~

‘Ready-to-wear in a Provence setting.’

‘The freshness of a red and navy border print is photographed in a seaside setting along the Côte d’Azur.’

‘Yves Saint Laurent, the man who catapulted peasants into high fashion,
chooses red, white, and blue for a pair of blouse and skirt ensembles.’

‘Givenchy’s muted stripes set in a tropical mood to highlight the faintly middle eastern quality of along dress.’
