"Clothes should look as if a woman was born into them" Geoffrey Beene

I decided to feature Geoffrey Beene as part of the debut of my new front cover of Shrimpton Couture this week — Jenna and I added a more editorial feel to it so I can start sharing more aspects of vintage and what we really do around here with you. (and yep it was totally inspired by Net-A-Porter — they do it the best and I am but a small bean trying to live up to their incredible examples of how to do e-commerce right! My version is of course all vintage and all Shrimpton Couture content!)
In honour of the great Mr Beene, I found this incredible video to share with you. It is from the studios of Geoffrey Beene and is circa 1987. Aptly entitle "The First 25 Years", it is worth the 7 or so minutes of your time to watch! Mr Beene is no longer with us and it is incredible to see him on video and talking about his career. And the clothes! Fabulous is an understatement!
This is also a great time to share these photos I took of Meg wearing the stunning striped Beene Boutique gown I have in the shop right now. If this dress does not make you fall in love with Beene, well, I don't know what possibly could. I paired the dress with Miu Miu dot platforms and we just threw up Meg's hair in a loose bun and pretty much just slicked on a red lip and that was it. Great design really does not need a whole lot of fuss. Sunshine and a pretty girl is just about the prefect backdrop to a dress of this caliber.
Mr Beene — I think she looks born into it — don't you?
