Ritz was very unusual in that they created unique ads created especially for the magazine with credits for all the creatives as well as the brands. Always interesting and frequently brilliant work can be found -
In this issue there is a brilliant series of portraits of Angelica Huston & Marie Helvin and Tina Chow by David Bailey in ads for David Shilling, Alan Coulridge and Freddie Fox respectively. Long before photoshop Bailey is innovating using a curved piece of paper in the enlarger creating a wonderful surrealist edge in the images.
Also two pages of brilliant Ads of Kenzo for Jungle Jap by the soon to be world famous Oliviero Toscani who went on to shoot all of the controversial Benetton ads
There is an iconic Terence Donovan ad for Olympus Cameras with Donovan in Judo gear with the camera strap just poking out
Also a full page Manolo Blahnik London image of shoes on a stool, very informal and unusual
The centre page double page image is a portrait of Sylvia Miles by Chris
