The futuristic fashion of André Courréges

Great videos showing Courreges designs predicting what I hope will be a 21st Century Mod Revival gone to space! R.I.P.

Happy birthday to designer, Emilio Pucci

“Gaiety is one of the most important elements I brought to fashion. I brought it through color.”

“I rediscovered colour and created a symphony of combinations. Flowers of all colours grow together in harmony in the fields and almost any one combination looks beautiful.”

Happy birthday, Twiggy

Everyone knows Twiggy as the pixieish moppet model that became the face of Swinging Sixties London, but fewer know of her contemporaneous singles, which is a shame as Beautiful Dreams is one of the greatest tracks of the era, with a beautiful arrangement from John Hawksworth, best known for his Library recordings on labels such as KPM, Music De Wolfe, Conroy, and others.

There are two versions of Beautiful Dreams, this one featuring a theremin.

And the theremin-less version

Come closer darlin’, closer to me
Come closer darlin’, strike up the light, strike up the light
Come beautiful dreams
Now I can see you, great as can be
Your face in the shadows, smiling at me
Smiling at me
Oh beautiful dreams
Why did you leave me?
To wander alone
Loneliness brings tears to my eyes, my eyes, my eyes
Now I wont see you, appear again
Only in dreams, beautiful dreams, beautiful dreams
Oh beautiful dreams
Why did you leave me?
To wander alone
Loneliness brings tears to my eyes, my eyes, my eyes
Now I want see you, appear again
Only in dreams, beautiful dreams
Beautiful dreams
Oh beautiful dreams
Oh beautiful dreams, Oh beautiful dreams, Oh beautiful dreams
