Alejandro & Mom, Vintage Photos


I love the idea of the contest, of sharing and being able to see other people's vintage photos. We tend so much to see fashion as something idealized and this really connects it with people's lives, it's great.

This a picture of my mother Willy van Rooy and me in Paris, I'm guessing the year must be 1970 or 71 at the most (I was born in 68). Apart from being an iconic model in the 60's and 70's who worked with the best photographers and designers, my mother was, and still is, a person with an amazing and very individual fashion sense (which later in life led her to become a successful fashion and shoe designer). I never remember her following fashion or buying clothes off-the-rack.

What I love about this picture is that it really shows her style, the mix of old-Hollywood glamour (the 30's vintage coat, the red lips, the short snake-skin jacket), with absolute freedom (the embroidered dress, the hand-made spanish boots, the Ibiza basket, the scarf and the flowing hair). And... don't I look like the cutest little hippie?

All the best,
Alejandro

Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (9:39 AM) : 

I find the kid's post fascinating though the mother looks totally disinterested... Her mad fashion mix is alot to absorb at first, but broken down piece by piece, it's quite interesting. I wish she had smiled in this photo so that I could impose my view of happiness upon her ;)

I can only hope that one day I will be a mother who is that cool. Fantastic mix creating a great individual style.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:07 AM) : 

She is indeed special. I like her style, and yet... I remember wearing things like this in the '70's as well. It was a time when fashion was far more far-flung, shall we say? Everyone was travelling and bringing back treasures to wear, whether that was Indonesia, or Paris or England. Because this was the time before globalization and fashion wasn't dictated to us, we simply put stuff together.

The interesting thing about this photo is that I could not guess when it was taken.

It could be the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 60s or last week. The only time period I knew it couldn't be was the 50s.

Very chic and clever mom.

I can see where you got your love for fashion! There's nothing better than mothers that continue to love style even when they have children to take care of, and pass down that love to our future fashionistas. She is a gorgeous woman with an incredible ability to put an outfit together. It's inspiring to see her unique take and the confidence/ability she has. I'm not surprised that even at age 3 style played a role in your life (whether you knew it then or not)!
I absolutely love your blog, keep up the wonderful work!

Yep, the 70s are my favorite era and this pic illustrates that perfect bohemian/hippie fashion of seemingly unrelated items mixing well. I think American culture was reflective of the fashion times or vice versa.

Blogger ladybug said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Wow, thank you all so much for taking the timer to comment on this picture. It was taken on an ordinairy day by Salvador Maron,( a snapshot) my painter artist husband and father of Alejandro who was indeed the cutest baby, so smart and always making incredible drawings. It warms the heart to hear all your wonderful comments and it indeed would be great to make a picture like that again now but will have to wait Alejandro comes to visit us in Oregon this summer and although I may not be that pretty anymore I still have my style because that is forever and as far as Alejandro is concerned he became a man with lots and lots of style and looks better then ever. Love and Peace to all and everyone and make sure that inside you look better than on the outside. Willy

This photo is divine. I love every quality, emotion and style this photo evokes straight down to the mother and child's clothing, their interaction with one another and their location and the architecture of the doorway.

Great great great!!!

For the fun I will tell you all what we were wearing as I remember well, the furcoat I hade made in London a few years earlier but since I wore it a lot and often used it as a blanket, it was a bit worn so I put a new beautiful black lining and wore it inside out. The snakeskin vest I had made in Ibiza from leather I had left from making leather clothes in NY, the skirt I bought in Kashmir (India) which was actually from the 30's when the Englih were there and they made with their folkart clothes for the English, it is hand embrodered. The scarf comes from Ivory coast were I was for a Photo shoot. The boots are spanish and the bag ofcourse from Ibiza. Alejandro is wearing an outfit I made for him in Ibiza and he also wears spanish boots.... Voila, there you have it. Love and Peace

When I first saw this picture I had to pause for a second a figure out if it was vintage or from today!

This is one of my all time fave shots from this blog--even though its vintage it could be today. I have always loved boheme 70s looks and I am glad many others do too, ensuring it will always be in vogue in its many individually reinvented forms.

I was scrolling down the page when I stopped, scrolled back up and gazed in wonder at this amazing photo that had caught my eye. Look at how amazingly beautiful she is; and her fashion sense is complimenting her figure immensely. I applaud this lady and her photographer.

Wow, such a phenomenal photograph. Your mother's style is so fabulously ecclectic, and while there is a vintage feel, she could walk right out of the picture and down the street today. And your style is certainly noteworty as well ;) Thanks for sharing.
