I often wonder how fashion houses like Zara and H&M, the number 1 and 2 in the world of pret-à-porter, are able to make almost every season a new collection. Not an easy feat but inspiration has to come from somewhere so when the flow of inspiration is runnning low or even has dried up there is always the past to copy or take as a basis for your next collection! That is what H & M has done in recent past with their spring/summer collection. They copied the flower power style of the end of the 60's and gave it a modern twist. Since a few years H & M has decided for the presentation of their collections to work with the Ukrainian model Daria Werbowy. Personally I do not like her face or body but that is a question of taste! Marisa Mell was photographed by the famous Italian photographer to the stars Angelo Frontoni in the spring of 1969 in Rome, Italy. This picture of Marisa Mell became quite famous and was often used as magazine covers around the world.
Thanks to Marisa Mell fan Gerald S. from Krefeld (Germany) for sending me these pictures and pointing this one out!
