Uschi Obermaier

Posted December 10 2014

A little while ago we sparked up an interesting conversation on instagram over photos of these photos of Uschi Obermaier from a vintage Sunday Times Magazine. Forever fans of a strong female character, a quick google search of the Munich born rebel makes for a fun read.

Having absent mindedly traced her story over the years, we were pleasantly surprised to find these shots of her by Willie Christie in 1974. According to our reliable sources she lives in LA now making jewellery and her left wing protest days hanging out with the like of Hendrix are no more. She's written an autobiography, but it's only available in German sadly. Originally from Munich, and then all over the globe we are sure she has some interesting stories to tell.


we love her sultry glance in this cover photo and like to imagine the moment the shutter was pressed. Was she aware of her beauty? Did she have an attitude? Was she a loveable soul? We think so. Hurray for Uschi.
