I love a #tbt.
My favorites are a childhood memory, or a flashback to the 80s or 90s fashion editorials (I currently can’t get a Vogue Italia shoot by Peter Lindbergh out of my head. Just too good!). One thing keeps coming back, though — cigarettes! I’m not really a smoker, albeit in Paris (when it feels so right, it can’t be wrong), but every editorial I come across from twenty years ago has a girl smoking — even in the movie theatre! In today’s spread, you never see a cigarette. It’s a no-no… a faux pas, really.
I’m not encouraging it (to each their own) but, with the disappearance of smoking in fashion, it seems like the act of doing nothing has taken its place.
What do you think the modern age replacement for smoking should be, in your opinion?
