Schöne Frau! Far-Out German Fashions of 1966-1968

Popular opinion is divided on whether women’s fashions from the 1970s and 1980s were, overall, a thing of beauty, or a hot mess. But there is no such conflict with 60s clothing: they were objectively fantastic by any barometer.  Whether young and mod, or classy and elegant – they were the high water mark for twentieth century style.  Let’s have a look at some pages lovingly scanned from German catalogs from 1966-1968.  Sich amüsieren!
