Mad Mad Modes for Moderns Mondays - Geometry + Fashion = Romance!

"Mad Mad Modes for Moderns"
Girls' Love Stories #132 (January 1968)
Illustrated by Jay Scott Pike

It's been a while since we've had a "Mad Mad Modes for Moderns" around here, so let's start the week off with a gorgeous Pike piece. It's amazing that though this fashion spread is 45 years old, these outfits are just as relevant today as they were then. Maybe not the copy so much, but the dresses -- yes! Fashion illustration at its finest, my friends!


  1. Very Cool! I like the black geometric shapes in the background -- keeps it fresh. I'm not sure the penciler really captured the movements of dance, though. She seems a bit stiff.


  2. I dig the black background embellishments as well!
