There’s this thing about the 70’s that you can’t deny, it just keeps coming back and you know what they say .. you can’t keep a good man down. With an influx of designers this season travelling back to the Seventies the Parisian runways were scattered with soft suede skirts, kick flare trousers and belted jackets as only Jane Birkin would know how. A grown up and more fitted less floatier version of the 60’s, the 70’s was where psychedelia took a quaalude and paved the way for the 80’s lady boss to step in. No matter how you see it, there’s a little bit of 70’s in all of us it’s just about finding the right balance for the modern femme fatale.
With all this in mind on my recent trip to Paris I had the pleasure and honour of teaming up with Australian photographer at large Jake Terrey to shoot and style the ‘hot off the Chanel runway’ beauty He Cong. On her last day in Paris after walking for Karl’s crew, Jake, He Cong and I hit the Jardin’s to inspire your inner 70’s hustle .. you should never keep a good man down ..
