I am having a Style Overload with this magazine I just added to the VIP Room. “Young and Eager” groups a couple different pairing – one in a pool, one in a bedroom and one in a living room. Each has some very distinctly early 1970’s style touches.
At the pool, it’s the bikini bathing suits, which men hadn’t started wearing yet. The hairy muscle guy is awesome, too.
The bedroom scene just defies description. The clash of the intricately patterned wallpaper against the floral bedspread is too much for words, not to mention the vinyl padded headboard in between. And looking at the beautiful specimen of a hairy chest, well, excuse me, I need to catch my breath…
The strong primary colors with the strong floral print certainly makes a statement, along with the iconic piece of pop culture – a poster taped to the wall advertising a popular rock band – which was something unheard of prior to this era.
And finally, I should make some profound statement about the pairing of shag haircuts with shag carpets, but there is no parallel. Style is style, they happened to occur at the same time, but it’s certainly fun! Just as much fun as mixing yet another style of bold patterned wallpaper with a striped couch as the background for a tight, tight patterned polyester shirt worn by a handsome young man with long hair and sideburns that match his naked friend’s sideburns. Nice chest, too!
