La Coquette

Tom was lucky enough to have first pick of a few 1930's French magazines that came into Otto Retro whilst he was helping out there; he saved me this one which is from 1932. I will be going in Tuesday to try and snaffle the rest for myself; it is just so rare to find them in such good condition! I just need to learn a little French now...

The Tennis themed cover is our favourite. I love that early 30's shape; when the waist was starting to be highlighted again yet the silhouette is still so lean. I can only imagine that being dressed like this they would have been so involved in their outfits and cutting edge raquets they would have managed little tennis before retiring exhausted for a lunch on the lawn.
