Fouli Elia 1963

February 15, 2017

Pages in a 1963 issue of Elle Magazine that displayed a fashion photograph by Fouli Elia beneath a landscape illustrated how magazines’ new definition of fashion city and urban space stretched to Paris’ suburbs and airport. One such image was cited as “Modern Paris. View from the southern highway between Paris and Orly.” In contrast to photographs of old, iconic, and static Paris (which traditionally upheld the symbolic construction of haute couture), these images visualized modern Paris in perpetual construction and expansion. Below this image, which stressed the vastness of suburban space and sky, Elia’s model seemed superimposed, and the frame could not contain her body, clothed in a ready-to-wear suit, in raw silk with a jersey blouse designed by Chloé.
