Slim Aarons was one of the twentieth century’s most acclaimed photographers. After working as a war photographer, Aarons decided to leave the battlefields behind and instead focus on snapping beautiful people in beautiful places.
We’ve long been fans of Slim Aarons’ striking work, which inspired our SS16 collection and campaign. On Thursday evening we headed down to the Getty Images Gallery to celebrate his career and launch a very special and exclusive Lily and Lionel project.
With unprecedented access to the Getty Images archive, we have selected three of Slim Aarons’ most recognisable works to create a limited edition scarf collection available exclusively at Lily and Lionel and Liberty. Poolside Glamour (1970), Eden Rock Pool (1976) and Beverley Hills Hotel (1957) each capture idyllic summer scenes and the allure of society life.
All turquoise blues of private pools and vivid greens of palm trees, every Slim Aarons image screams summer. You just want to dive straight in and join the life of leisure that he captures. Head to the Getty Images Gallery until 7th May to see for yourself – we guarantee you’ll leave planning your next beach holiday.
