L'officiel 1976

I came across this 1976 L'officiel at this place here in Montreal called the Old Shop. I picked up this issue and was blown away by all the great photo layouts and designer ads. They don't make fashion magazine the way they use to!

For some reason new magazines promote the same stuff over and over again. I get so bored and it takes alot for a fashion magazine to get my attention now a days. Does anyone else feel that way? At school I always have to do research in magazines for insperation but I really don't get any. All my insperations come from either old art books, photography or vintage fashion and craft magazines.

I scanned a few of my favorite pages in this issue. It was an ode to America for the Bicentenaire ( I don't know how to translate that in english, pardon my french). I am not a big fan of 70s fashion but this made me think twice before judging the 70s for it's long maxi dresses! I love the shoot of NYC with all the Annie Hall inspired looks. I hope you enjoy this little selection I wanted to share with you all!
