There are some iconic moments on film that will always be recognisable, even if future generations only know them from the echoes of imitations and parodies and tributes without really grasping the original source. David Hemmings photographing Veruschka in 1966′s Blow Up is one of those moments. A brilliant recreation of that scene opens Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Swinging Fashion which – as you will surely have guessed by now – is a revel in 1960s styling and iconography.
1960s hairstyles – styled by Christian Attuly – play a key role in creating the authentic vibe of the shoot, with bobs and bouffants complimented by Daria Slusarczyk’s era-inspired makeup. Marz Atashi styles it to perfection, never once missing the important role accessories can play in bridging the decades-wide gap between the mid century and the now.
