I always find great inspiration in the advertisements and editorials of vintage magazines. Sadly, most of these images end up in the trash or some fashion archive never to be seen again. In the next few weeks I’ll be posting some of my favorites in their original large format. Rare finds and beautiful enough to frame… I just don’t have the wall space.

If you couldn’t tell by now, I kind of have a thing for disco glamour, and these Oui Magazine compilations really started if off for me. The girls, the hair, the clothes, they blew my mind when I first found them. As a younger version of my sponge self, I remember flipping through the pages and realizing that these images were the source for some of the spreads being published in modern fashion magazines… plagiarism! Porn mags in the 70’s, and OUI in particular, were incredibly influential platforms for fashion photographers (think of Helmut and all the naked ladies you see in fashion rags today). They blurred the line between porn, art, and commerce.
In these three Oui Albums you’ll find some of the best fashion photographers and models moonlighting in porn: Helmut Newton, Stan Malinknowski, Richard Fegeley, Chris Von Waggenheim, Jeanloup Sieff, Francis Giacobetti, Jean Paul Goude, Jerry Hall, Jane Birkin, Joe Dallesandro, etc.
