It’s a month before production begins on our next catalog, and I’m obsessively sifting through John Rawlings’ photography for Vogue through the 40s and 50s. In the age of provocative-bordering-on-obsene fashion photography à la Terry Richardson et al, Rawlings’ eye for composition and form–together with the refined 40s styling–is suddenly refreshing… and surprisingly sexy. Here’s a shot by John Rawlings for Vogue, circa 1941. The models are peering into the March 1941 of Vogue, which just so happens to feature Schepps jewelry on the cover!
There’s nothing I find more delight in than discovering a vintage photo with Seaman Schepps jewelry. I often find myself trolling through old magazine archives and society photos, hoping to catch a glimpse of an iconic Schepps jewel. Luck was on my side today… Here a stunning shot of a model wearing our large and medium Link Bracelets, as photographed by John Rawlings–influential Vogue photographer of the 40s.
