Vintage Vogue and Harpers & Queen Magazines Now On Sale!
Looking for the perfect gift for a finicky fashion friend? Look no further! At the weekend I took delivery of a selection of vintage Vogue and Harpers & Queen magazines from the eighties! Dating from 1980-1988 they’re amazing. If you’re interested in fashion history, make-up, etc. these are invaluable source material.
The mastheads also make for interesting reading; the Vogues in particular chart the fall of editor Beatrix Miller, the rise of Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington’s departure to work as Creative Director at Calvin Klein, Anna Wintour leaving to go to US Vogue, Liz Tilberis’ appointment as editor…the drama!
The covers are amazing too; all the supers are in attendance and its incredible to see how young Cindy, Linda, Christy et al. haven’t changed much.
All in all, they are a spectacular timeline of fashion history and all for £10 a pop!
