"Fashion is essentially a game of hide and seek between seduction and privacy"
- James Laver
That said, who have thought I would dig out such a treasure at an H&M store?!
The quote is taken from a biblical gem - my Christmas present for myself this year - "Fashion ads of the 20th century" published by TASCHEN.
It's 365 pages [Intentional digits - one for every day of the year] contains great fashion advertising milestones including beautifully detailed illustrations from the 1920's and Photo shoots by Annie Leibovitz [Amazing portraits craftswoman] sidelong Steven Meisel's controversial 95' campaign photos for Calvin Klein. All images are taken from Jim Heimann's varied collection.
