CLEMMER, Jean. Nues.
(Paris): Pierre Belfond, 1969. First edition. Quarto. Stunningly original collaboration of photographer Jean Clemmer and enfant terrible of French fashion, Paco Rabanne. The volume captures beautifully the utopian dreams of an era, exploring the realms of science fiction and fantasy. Erotic images of models as muse for French couturier Paco Rabanne’s famed futuristic rhodoid and aluminium chain-mail jewellery, the photographs were both styled and created by Clemmer, depicting nude female models ‘dressed’ in Rabanne’s ‘unwearable’ fashions, epitomising the radical culture of sexual freedom of the 1960s at its apex in 1969. This is a fine copy in a very good dust jacket with a short tear at the base of the spine.
