Rabbit Hole || Summer in the Vogue Archives

July 1919, illustration by Helen Dryden.
Similar to the recent release of vintage beach fashion images from Vogue Spain that I highlighted a few weeks back, US Vogue has also decided to open up their vast archive to give us a look at summer fashions dating back to 1899. Containing some very famous and iconic images, you know I couldn’t resist. I selected a few of my favorites, but be sure to head over to Vogue to see them all.
These images have me looking forward to my planned
trip to Ft. Tilden this weekend, definitely…

Love, love, love Edward Steichen! His photographs are amazing! Great post!
Some of these photos are so beautiful they don’t even look real. I am heading over to Vogue to check out more of the archives asap:)
Nice choice! Some of these images appear in the great book The Swimsuit by Sarah Kennedy, that i did a post about recently.
Come over for a visit.
These are so great. The Toni Frissel photo of the woman standing on the boom was almost the cover of Tomboy Style!
