A Bygone Era

After seeing the vintage advertisements by Serge Lutens, I have elected to showcase; what I think are the finest examples of retro cosmetic and perfume ads that I feel show true artist merit. A real striking and at times surreal approach to advertising cosmetics. If it appears that all these ads are rouge heavy. Then yes, I have an established weakness for red lipstick hence why they feature so strongly. Beautiful art in its own right not just a way of the big brands to promote their latest products.
