There's often a difference between how we imagine or remember the Sixties & how they really were. I remember that they looked more like what's in this book: Jackie Kennedy, Patty Duke, Leslie Gore, Carnaby Street & San Francisco filtered through Sears & delivered to middle class America. It all got pretty silly toward the end of the decade. But something important was happening in women's fashions. Clothes became more comfortable & hair styles more simple, if that's what one chose. But the choice was there. That transition is captured by these amusing & thought-provoking catalogue pages.
It's a wonderful book for crafters of costumes & doll clothing, art students, pop sociologists & anyone who enjoys seeing how the times were a changin' through the mediums of clothing, hair, bust size & retail pricing. Very few color pix, though.
In sehr guter Qualität zusammengetragen was Sears in S/W Zeitungsanzeigen beworben hat. Fast unglaublich heutzutage. Dennoch: hätte man auch so in der Produktbeschreibung mal genauer erklären können bzw. einen Blick ins Buch erlauben. Aber auf keinen Fall eine Enttäuschung sondern eine Überraschung und sehr spannend zu bestaunen was es alles gab.
