Trying to put my thoughts & ideas down somewhere and give another outlet to my creativity. It's all connected, so I can't say it's a blog about just this or just that. Dolls. Fashion. Art. A little bit on travel, whatever... let's take it wherever it goes...

Adam - 1950s men's fashion magazine

Here's a rare magazine I acquired lately:

Adam - La revue de l'home - summer 1954

Basically, this is a French fashion magazine for the man of the world. Wow. It's chock full with ads, fashion pages (drawings and photos) that show the newest by the best brands, and then there are further topics that are almost cliché for guys... hunting! BBQs!

Ok, let's start at the beginning...
This cover is a scream, I think! It's title is "Chapeau de plage (se transformant en sac de shopping)" - beach hat that transforms into shopping bag. And doesn't the girl look just like Barbie doll in her first swimsuit? Only, that was five years later! Well, and the guy could certainly be Ken...


Just some of the amazing ads!
I wonder what shop this was... it sold Lambretta scooters and "the best fishing equipment". What a mix!
On the left - the Deauville summer program for 1954.
 But now, for the look of summer 1954!
 Ok , this is for the hot days, but a tiger striped shirt?!
 Summer evening.
 Hunting in Scotland.
 How to build your own BBQ - and what to put on it!
 Important stuff - how to wear your decorations right...
 All you need for your summer holiday.
The latest from the finest tailors. Love the girl's outfit - the jacket looks like my vintage "power jacket" - which was made by a tailor.
And finally - an ad for the girls too! I guess they thought that women would look at this too ;-).
