Scandale Girdle Birds

Post-war, the girdle returned. This magnificent ad from 1955 exhibits the lingerie which gained a new lease of life as French women reclaimed the feminine styles briefly abandoned during wartime employment. Birds in blooming Technicolor flutter about the glamorous lady as if dressing her. This lascivious image might have been a ‘Scandal’ elsewhere in the world, but was in perfect harmony with the seductive mood of liberated ’50s France. This poster will add a dash of cosmopolitanism to any interior.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
