Carte Blanche de Weill Paris (1969)

Some very striking images from Weill's 1969 prêt-à-porter collection, these three adverts were part of an extensive publicity campaign to promote the rather exotically named range.

Image (2.) scanned by Sweet Jane from Elle Magazine 6th October 1969 & image (3.) scanned from my personal collection of vintage adverts which I purchased as an individual page separated from the original unidentified 1969 magazine publication, although I would imagine it is more than likely that it was also featured in another issue of Elle from this period.

  1. Le Modelle Jade double breasted number is Cest Magnifique, no ? (As you can see I paid no attention to what little French was offered at School).
