Chic for Sale

Before it’s recent demise, House and Garden was selling chic vintage prints of images from it’s archives but now you can buy them from all the magazines under the Conde Nast umbrella in their chic new store. From vintage Vogue covers to iconic images of Veruschka and interiors by Cecil Beaton, above. You name it. They have it and it’s definitely worth a peak.

“In Clifford Coffin’s quietly beautiful image from the March 1, 1949, Vogue, the crimson tones of a model wearing a Vogue Pattern suit-dress cut in Balmain fabric pop against a misty and melancholy streetscape.”

“Melanie Kahane decorated this converted attic space, complete with a crimson chaise lounge and loveseat. Haanel Cassidy photographed the space for the January 1955 issue of House and Garden.”

“A model holds fabric against a white wall in this Herbert Matter photograph, which was featured in the September 1950 issue of House and Garden.” Makes me wish I was a decorator in the 1950’s! I love the hat and gloves! Talk about chic!

    I love stuff like this, and images you’ve chosen are lovely – the lady in red reminds me of a Dior model. I’d read about their online store, but I’d completely forgotten about it. Great post (I love your blog) – I’m off to browse.

    Now if they’d just expand the sections of paintings of between-the-wars rooms by Pierre Brissaud & the great David Payne…
