Robert McGinnis Is Fashionable

Prada Teams with Robert McGinnis for Fall 2017 Prints: Miuccia Prada is known for pulling together disparate references, and her Fall 2017 collection did not disappoint on that front. Among the looks on her runway in Milan tonight were a series of prints pulled from paperback novels of the ‘60s, drawn by renowned illustrator Robert E. McGinnis. Looks 30 to 34 featured McGinnis’s depictions of bombshells in various states of alluring undress, each featured on the covers of mid-century books by Brett Halliday (and one by Erle Stanley Gardner) with salacious titles like Murder and the Married Virgin and Never Kill a Client. Titillating! McGinnis’s artwork was also featured in Prada’s set this season, with some of his famous works collaged in the Via Fogazzaro show space alongside modern photography and maps.

Hat tip to Art Scott.

It is going to cost Art Scott Big Bucks to buy these designer clothes for his McGinnis collection!

I have a friend named Ray who - to quote Archie Goodwin in another context - must be a kobold or something. He has a supernatural knack of finding valuable stuff in unlikely places. I confidently expect Ray to come across a dress or two in a thrift store somewhere. By the way, if I have a choice, I'd pick One Night With Nora
