From Kim:

The two vintage photos above evoke the mood and style of the stars and jet set of the sixties and bring to mind many great films of the era. I think of La Piscine with Jane Birkin, Last Year at Marienbad with Delphine Seyrig and Ieri, Oggi Domani with Sophia Loren. These sensational films, shot on location in France, Czechoslovakia and Italy, respectively, are filled with beautiful people in beautiful places getting into a fair amount of trouble! I love anything that reminds me of this bygone era of European elegance, chic and nonchalance. The photo of the seaside pool and umbrella-studded terrace overlooking the mediterranean sea was taken at the grand belle époque Hotel Imperial in Santa Margharita, Italy, not far from Positano. One half expects to see Marcelo Mastroianni, Alain Delon or Rock Hudson saunter up to the poolside bar for a cocktail. Not far from there, another favorite movie of mine, Come September, was filmed. I can't go back in time, but I can sport some of the timeless fashions that made this era so endearing and beautiful!
