Operation Venus | Queen Magazine (1968)

Operation Venus

1960s fashion advert


Adrenalin-charged reflexes trigger muscles and sinews. Disciplined icy judgements crackle into split-second responses. Thought and action are one. This is the white hot moment: and yet you are cool. Detached. Can find the time to think about Cosak. Cosak is new; brilliant, A tour-de-force. A cloth sans peur et sans reproche pour l'homme.

  1. Wonderful campaign, with several shots of this kind. Crossroads-quality sets, and never clear if they were actually being serious.
