Facebook is such a great platform for finding interesting businesses. House of Liza is a London-based boutique that has some killer vintage. They have a retail component, as well as a renting clothing for TV and film. Their Facebook page always has beautiful photos, and lots of fun information for fashion history lovers!
Last week, they posted archived print ads to a Facebook album. The above image of Claude Montana for Gianni Ballanti was included. This photo reminded me of the Space Age style so common in the late 1960s. In fact, it made me remember a great presentation by Whitney Robertson on Space Age style as seen in The Jetsons.
There is a great episode when Jane and Judy go shopping for new hats. Looks a lot like Montana’s design, doesn’t it?
