Paris 1962


I discovered this Flickr photo set via Niotillfem last night and I think my jaw actually dropped. The saturated colors! The clothes! The poodle at dinner! And those fingernails! Yikes. I love how intimate the photos are, as if you're sitting right there at the table listening to wine glasses clink and laughter fill the air as smoke fills the room. I don't know if I've ever seen photos that captured the mood of a room quite so well.

From the Flickr set description: "Images from Paris caf├ęs and nightlife in 1962, the same week Yves St. Laurent's runway show vaulted Dior to new heights."
