CLOTHES TO BE IN LOVE IN!
A four page editorial from Queen Magazine, first published in November 1967, it's pretty much got it all going on...a rather booze fuelled love affair, furniture by one of the masters of Modernism, clothes and accessories from Quorum, Mary Farrin, Mary Quant, Gucci, Hung On You, Mr Fish, and hairstyling by Leonard of Mayfair!
HUDDLE UP CUDDLE UP CLOTHES
Clothes to be in love in...You'll be so nice to come home to in utterly feminine soft wool, especially if you warm the cockles of his heart with Madeira as the aperitif. You and you wicked ploys...Or look demure in frilly shirt and sumptuous velvet skirt; all sweetness and light and Madeira comfort. Clever you...Quick-change artistry to classic black with Tudor lace at cuffs and collar and bottled Elizabethan charm all the way from the island of Madeira. And you'll be adorable in angora. Cuddle-up and huddle-up and pass the decanter, darling...
