Baby doll trousers

A few months back, I found this new-ish pair of trousers at my local thrift store. I immediately recognized some of the inspiration for the print.

The label is “Single,” a clothing company that seemed to be operating from 1996 to 2005.

This imagery is taken from a groovy Baby Doll Cosmetics ad from 1968. (Ad scanned by Sweet Jane from Rave Magazine April 1968.) 

Another bit is taken from the album cover art for “Supernatural Fairy Tales,” a 1967 album for the British band, Art, by Hapshash and the Coloured Coat.

The interwebs have failed me in finding the inspiration for these platform shoes.

Can't say I particularly like the print, but it was fun to recognize these elements. And someone on eBay will like them.
