If you are like us, there are large piles of old fashion magazines occupying much space in your apartment. One of the reasons that we can’t bear to part with magazines that are (sometimes) decades old is the ads. Beyond being able to see models-of-the-moment in their prime, we love to look back at labels that are no longer on the scene (Claude Montana), or have been taken over by new designers (Thierry Mugler). Here, a few vintage ads that we have come across lately. Our favorites being the DVF ad with both Iman and Gia(!!!) and the CK One image featuring the lovely model-turned designer Lois Samuels (that’s her on the far left).
There’s something about a bottle of Escada perfume packed in y0ur Gucci toiletry bag that immediately makes us think of summer vacation. We envision a tropical setting, lush palm trees, an all-white cabana with the endless mojitos and a gorgeous waiter who keeps the drinks and the flirtations flowing. Escada produces some of the best spring/summer scents imaginable and every year they outdo themselves. Their latest launch is the Taj Sunset. It is encased in a flirtatious bottle and is the color of a Tahitian sunset.
The topnotes include: Alphonso Mango and Blood Orange
The middle notes include: Watery Blossom, Sweet Pomarose and Raspberry Jasmine

If you want a little taste of the exotic life, spritz on some Taj Sunset from Escada and you’ll instantly be transported to the perfect tropical getaway.
