Ralph Lauren launched Polo in 1967.
He started with men's neck wear - ties.
Dayton's Kenwood Shop sold them.
Twiggy came to Dayton's.
A few years later
Marissa Berenson was on the cover of time
with the quote:
"I want to be a saint."
I was impressed.
Remember Antonioni's Blow Up?
Veruschka fascinated me.
I encountered this guy on my first NYC trip,
during intermission outside 'Hair' in 1968.
He was the top male model - debuting around 1967.
I never knew his name, but admired his work.
The woman is Pat Cleveland.
If anyone knows his name I'd love to know it.
