elegance: une

The 1920s-1940s had an elegance to them that I don’t see very much nowadays. That’s precisely why I love watching black & white movies — for the fashion and gorgeous sets.

I recently picked up one of my favorite books “Elegance: The Seeberger Brothers and the Birth of Fashion Photography.” According to the book they were the first fashion photographers. The photos chronicle high society ladies, mostly in France, from 1909 through 1939.

I wanted to share some of my favorite photos but there are so many so I’m doing it in sections. This is partie une. These ladies are all wonderful examples of how timeless fashion can be. From the fabrics to the cut of their suits, I can see woman of today wearing any of these outfits.

… and of course the ultimate star of this time — and to this day.
