loving this Rene Gruou advertisement for @JaegerLondon from 1954 when flicking through my favourite new book last night from my housemate. 100 Years of Fashion Illustration FYI. Although I love the texture in the coat and outfit overall, it’s the background I was paying attention to and have had a little word with myself to take on board for something similar. just hinting at a background is enough to give us an atmosphere without taking anything away from the advertised outfit. If anyone can do this, Gruou can.
