On the Seine

In 1963, photographer Melvin Sokolsky shot the iconic “Bubble” fashion series in Paris for Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s spring collection. Alix of Modern Kiddo explains that the plexiglass ball holding the model, the lovely Simone d’Aillencourt, was actually suspended by a cable and crane. No image trickery was used. A limited edition art book of the full series is available at Sokolsky’s website.
