Jewellery archive: Εxotic Veruschka

Veruschka was one of the most iconic models of the 1960s, a muse for designers and
photographers and a source of inspiration for fashionistas till today.
Today, at 78 she still walks the runway and stars in campaigns, selectivley of course and to great fanfare.
In the late sixties she was ravishingly in fashion and was very popular at the time.
It was the era of the hippies, summer of love and fascination with anything oriental and exotic and the world of fashion
joined in the adventure with designers getting inspiration from traditional costumes and jewellery of the East.
In some photographs, Veruschka looks as if she stepped out of the pages of Arabian Nights, wearing exotic,
oriental jewellery that remains a must have accessory and a key item for any bohemian chic look, especially during the summer.
