LES ASSASSINS DU BODY
lancent le prêt - à - choquer
A fantastic editorial originally published in 1967, which pays homage to those who were determined to step out in true 'peacock style' regardless of the general conformity in menswear that still surrounded them at the time, even though the revolution in men's fashion was well underway. The original article is in French, so, I shall refrain from doing the language an injustice by attempting to translate the introduction to the piece and particularly any of the quotes from Baudelaire or François de La Rochefoucauld via Google Translate. Thankfully, the photographs are strong enough to speak for themselves, there are definitely some superb examples of dandy finery on display here!
