Perry Ellis for Martex 1983

It seems like I just wrote last week’s Favorite Friday Vintage Ads and here it is Friday, again – how fast this week has flown by! But I’m not complaining, as Friday’s are most welcomed and better still, I’m off to my native home, northern California, to spend a week with my family at our beloved Stinson Beach in Marin county.

Last week I posted an ad produced by Atelier Martex, one of several to come. Today’s feature showcases a signature line for Martex created by the late great fashion designer Perry Ellis. Ellis was know for his classic American point of view, and this room illustrates his pared-down take on American chic. Looking at the room today brings to mind Bill Blass’s country house – spare, classic, and distinctly American.

Have a glorious weekend – I’ll see you at the beach!
