SCENE | 1930s Parisian Street Photography
Photos by The Séeberger Brothers, via Miss Moss.
I waited about three seconds after seeing this post on Miss Moss before I purchased the book Elegance: The Séeberger Brothers and the Birth of Fashion Photography ($9+ used, $108 new), a book that The Sartorialist also blogged about a few years ago, noting the timelessness of the imagery and the outfits. Some say this series, which captured French society women in the 1930s and 1940s, is the first true example of street fashion photography. I can't wait until the book arrives, how perfectly chic are these women?
