Welcome to the social design: loose lessons from the stylized representation of the social in cinema and print. A blog very often about the interior design, fashion, social manners, and music created for and reflected in vintage cinema and print. Especially from the Sixties and Seventies, especially Italian, and especially from swingin' party scenes. We're awfully big on disco hippies and the OpArt accent here. Guaranteed, of course, to wander off on the occasional tangent into (maybe?) related subject matter, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek commentary for your consideration along the way. Comments are welcome, so please consider yourself invited...

No sassy lesson for this one, just a quick share. Babydoll turned me on to this the other day: the really very fabulous opening credits to the Argentinian film "Juegos de Verano" (Games of Summer) from 1971 (or 1973 according to IMDB). It's apparently a sexploitation film, though I doubt the rest of it could get me hotter than the animated Op Art intro and groovy track from Waldo Belloso. I recommend viewing in a fringed suede midriff vest. Enjoy!
