If you’re looking for a little stylistic inspiration this summer, look no further than the photographs of Slim Aarons. They document the rich and famous at their ease, sunning themselves at such glamourous locales as Palm Beach and Monte Carlo, throughout the 50’s to 80’s period.
The people in Aarons pictures ooze glamour and sophistication. Their style is so at ease, clothes draped over bronzed bodies seemingly without a care. There’s no high fashion, just simple garments in beautiful colours, constructed out of natural cloth.
Look, admire, be inspired. Aarons said of his own reputation that it was made by simply “photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.”
