I Dream of Ruffles. Vintage Editorial Featuring Jane Birkin & Charlotte Rampling, 1972 August 22 2016, 0 Comments

Ruffles are so incredibly fun and playful, and incidentally, very on-trend for both SS16 and upcoming AW16. This editorial, shot by the master, David Bailey for Vogue UK March 1st, 1972 shows just how glamorous and sophisticated they can be.

 

Featuring two glamorous ladies, Charlotte Rampling, an icon of the sixties and early 70s, known for her work in European arthouse films, and the stunning Jane Birkin, the woman who the infamous Hermés Birkin was named after. Both wearing incredible dresses by Chanel, Givenchy and Dior, this vintage editorial showcases perfectly how vintage ruffled dresses are timeless and dramatic.
