STYLE {WISE} – Suddenly Seeking Sweater Girls

{Natassja Kinski in Paris, Texas (1984)}

Lovely ladies, it seems we’ve been thinking of you a lot lately. It’s not by accident, for we have been meditating on many thoughts as of late about our many loves and desires when it comes to female fashions. In true E.O.F. Style we stepped back to the past for a little taste of times past to infiltrate our vintage vision for the future. When it comes to sweaters, it’s not hard to see how having a great one is top of the pops for most style driven Sams and Sallys. If it’s not one, it better be a hundred. There aren’t many sweater that go out of style, either. They are simply one of those timeless treasures that titillate… Indeed, there was a time when we imagined only the good girl donning a prim and proper sweater, but don’t be fooled. Many a femme fatale and vixen have adorned their bodies with an armor of angora to dumb found the senses. We looked back  the distant and recent past to pull some of the best images we could find that helped seduce and inspire.  Listen close, and you might hear the sweet, sweet, song of the Sweater Girls….

“I’ve got a twenty pound ball hanging on a chain around my neck.

I’ve got to get away, run before I’ll be called away.

I’ve got to break these chains, before I go insane.

I’ve got to get up and go, go any place I don’t know.

I’m gonna break away from all the chains that bind

And everyday I’ll wear what I want

And do what suits me fine…

I’m gonna break away…

Break away from the Everyday…”

-“Breakaway” sung by Toni Basil, Prod. by Ed Cobb.

Commercial Break: Seventies Style Orgy – “Baba Yaga” (1973)

Baba Yaga 1973- The Eye Wonders Baba Yaga 1973- shot through the heart and youre too late - vintage fashion film inspiration Baba Yaga 1973- illustrated title

Perhaps its the fashion photographer protagonist . . . or maybe the sexy 1970s set decor; most definitely attribute the funky score by Piero Umiliani (you know him – “Mah Nà Mah Nà”), as well as the brilliant presence of film legend, Carroll Baker (“The Watcher in the Woods“, “Babydoll“), and those quirky illustrations that appear, throughout the film – “Baba Yaga” is a bit of a shit show, but a wonderfully unique and stylish one, at that.

I thought Daily Grindhouse summed it up best:

Carroll Baker (BABY DOLL, THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS) is the titular stranger who is all sexed up with hunger for some female flesh. Baba Yaga sets her sights on fashion photographer Valentina Rosselli (Isabelle De Funes) after a chance encounter and soon pays a visit to her humble abode to deliver a doll dressed in some S&M gear for “protection”. After the visit, Valentina’s life is turned upside down; she is suddenly surrounded by death, hallucinations, Nazis (?), and more naked women than a Las Vegas casino. Of the four I prefer the naked women… just sayin’.

It’s these bizarre, unusual, and unexpected (perhaps, even absurd) elements that make a cult classic like this one to remember! You can totally read this film (even just the trailer) for clues on seventies style, and how timeless one can really make it. Love the stripes, the furs, the bobs, the rings . . . love it all! Even the menswear is pretty sublime.

Did I mention there’s witches? You probably gathered, by now. After all – “Baba Yaga” literally translates to Devil Witch! So, sit back and enjoy the sumptuous feast of the best vintage, stylish,erotic, exploitation, sleaze in three and half minutes you’re bound to find on the internet!

Enjoy the pictures, too.

They really capture the little moments that make this one worth remembering.

Commercial Break: Shake That Thing Now! Dance Sequence from “Teenage Gang Debs” (1966)

EOF- Teenage Gang Debs Poster

So what if they’re a little mean? Doesn’t mean they don’t know how to have fun, or better yet know how to throw a “kick-ass” dance party. “Teenage Gang Debs” definitely do!

Sort of a new obsession as of late. This exploitation classic takes the archetypal “mean girl” to a whole new level. Shot in gritty black and white on a very low budget, the film is everything we could ever hope for with a soundtrack that will keep you bobbing your head straight to the gates of hell.

The trailer describes these bad girls as   “The Go-Go Girls who go too far; from backroom binges to back alley rumbles anything goes as long as it’s violent!”

You get a great hit of vintage bad-ass styling here, too! REBELS FOREVER!!!

Teenage Gang Debs - EOF- Angels Are Demons

We can’t wait to screen this at our studio with the company of our own group of Teenage Gang Debs!

This little dance sequence is one of the highlights of the film, so please check it out!

Start with the front punch

then do another front punch

then you do a knee kick

then you do another knee kick

And baby, that’s all you do

And then you’re a black belt too!

– “Black Belt” by Steve Karmen; Sung by Lee Dowell.
