Remember William Claxton !

This year, the art world and as well as the fashion world lost an important member, photographer William Claxton. You surely know his work and by that his contribution to the stylish world we love.
As a tribute, I give you images from the Rudi Gernreich collection (different years), featuring his wife and muse, model Peggy Moffitt. This is the result of a great collaboration, of a dynamic trio:
Little Boy suit with tank top, 1966.

Color blocking in wool knit, fall 1967.

See-through minidress in lacquered chiffon and wool crepe, fall 1967.

Long matte jersey dress with doorspring hardware, fall 1971.

Wool-knit tunic over shorts, fall 1971.

Roualt swimsuit, resort 1971.

Long orange matte jersey t-shirt with hot pink insert, spring/summer 1972.
William Claxton(October 12, 1927 - October 11, 2008) you will be remembered!
