Jaguar sleek jumper dress in pigskin by Jean Muir.
Beautiful Veruschka in soft, supple leather, a sleek, powerul Jaguar XJ6... we combined fashion - clothes in suede and leather, big news for Autumn - and a road test in Spain.
Is there anything more harmonious than a photoshoot involving Veruschka, a Jaguar XJ6 and photographer Franco Rubartelli? Add in some sensational and tactile leather, suede and skin clothes and some spectacular jewellery, and you've got serious magic here. Rubartelli and Veruschka really were the dream team of lovers and creative partners and this always comes across in the mood of their photoshoots together. This one in particular has a very timeless, almost cinematic, feel - despite having all the trappings of the late Sixties in its aesthetic.
