This is the STUNNING Elle in 1970's New York Issue.  Always our favourite issue of Elle, of any edition, ever!  We could enthuse about this issue for ions but this, believe it or not, is the edited version... read on!

Cover -

NEW YORK in the 1970's photographed by the great Jean Paul Goude.  Love the Manhattan skyline in the background including the World Trade Centre buildings.  Also love the zip on the models jeans on the cover.  This would NEVER happen on any magazine cover today.  It makes the image though, no? Polished but off-kilter, our kind of fashion..!

Inside -

It's FULL of characters and style. Brilliant images by Goude who was only just beginning his career.

A young Janice Dickinson models in a fashion shoot by Alice Springs, Helmut Newton's wife June Newton, a prolific fashion photographer in her own right.

The NYC special has photographed a real who's who of the NY scene in the seventies - see rare photos of Antonio Lopez, the fashion designers Stephen Burrows and Willy Smith, Apollonia van Ravenstein, CHRISTOPHE AUBRY, Didier MALIGE (married to Grace Coddington) and others...

Fashion themes are broken down into neighbourhoods and cultures such as BAHAMAS, BROOKLYN and WILLIAMSBURG, LATINO, MADRAS, PUERTO RICO... and Goude photographs people from each group in their locality, posing with models.  In one shot a painted fabric background is used as a backdrop, but they didn't need this when you look up and see one of the iconic graffiti train sailing past overhead! ( The book SUBWAY ART was published a few years later in 1984...).  Also note the chopper bike with the big handlebars making an appearance in this rare and important fashion and cultural record of America's greatest city!

BODYBUILDER and boxer MARIAN TYGER and KELLIE EVERTS (Rasa von Werderpose with models in a fashion spread by Goude.

Music faces of the New York scene - SOUL TRAIN, FRANKIE CROCKER, THE LOCKERS and more.

Folk and ROCCOCO apartments in New York interiors are used as settings for fashion spread.  Love the TV, pop bottles and Saint Laurent clothes in one shot.  Take us back to seventies NY!

Yves Saint Laurent, Emmanuelle Ungaro, Lanvin and Nina Ricci - full page fashion illustration plates drawn by each designer from their new collections.  Small photo of each with short bio.

Fashion and photos from BIARRITZ.  

JOLI CORPS, CHU-CHU MALAVE and much much more...

Lastly, shout-out to the graphic designers out there - who clocked the STARS AND STRIPES typeface?! Sooo good.  Every. Page. Is. Flawless.  And it's the only copy we've seen in 20 years of looking!

This is a very rare issue of the French edition of Elle, they are extremely scarce as it was published weekly and very few remain.

Excellent condition with some wear to the cover, see photographs also including the back cover.
