Last night at the First Kiss afterparty (more on that later!) I was chatting with the stylish man behind Hard Liquor Soft Soles about vintage fashion editorials, and Self Service happened to come up. A force to be reckoned with, Self Service of yore combined this very visceral and steamy appeal with incredibly on point styling. Now, I’m still a fan of the project and admittedly have the recent ones in my magazine collection. I’m also a fan of polaroids but feel like they are very one-note. So here’s an ode to a lovely story, photographed by sir Mario Testino and styled brilliantly by Jane How.
