A couple of day ago, I shared these vintage illustrated British Vogue covers on Mouzine. I keep going back to them an discovering something new, so I thought I’d share them here too.
Apparently in the years between 1909 and 1940, we were quite something on Vogue. Playing tennis, keeping bees, handling guns, playing harps, channelling Botticelli’s Venus de Milo, painting frescoes and fishing for fish, among other things (taking tea, reclining on chaise longues, sun soak-uppering). It sure beats pouting and looking moody. Outstanding.
