Before effortlessness was a thing to be engineered, photographer Ronald Falloon threw his denim shirt onto Jean Shrimpton and took these photos.
The photos were for the first ever Sunday Telegraph supplement but never ended up going to print. It’s clear from the simple tests why Shrimpton was such a celebrated model, bringing beauty with absolute ease to the simplest of looks. It’s not effortlessness engineered, it’s effortlessness full stop. A 1960s fashion icon, Shrimpton’s fringed mod bob is a style that’s found its way back in fashion today, making the release of the never before seen shots particularly timely.
The photographs of Jean Shrimpton, along with others by Ronald Falloon, are on sale here. You can view a gallery of the images above.
