Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Fashion 1969 Across The Universe

Written by Christopher Alm • June 29th, 2009

Imagine the following. Late 1960s, gorgeous models moving in slow motion, cutting edge fashion around various locations in what looks like a racetrack outside Paris. Everything accompanied to a groovy beat with phaser effects and flowing arpeggios.

The song is “Indicatif Spatial” by Jean-Jacques Perrey.


Bonus: Sounds Galactic ‎- An Astromusical Odyssey by John Keating from 1971

  • The sad thing is that I am old enough to remember 1969 and that kind of futuristic/metalic/abrupt style WAS the thing. The fashion in the video is truly a score. Thanks for posting it.

  • What’s so sad about that? You should be happy that you got to experience the 60s in person Charles. I arrived 20 years too late, bummer.

    That was a very cool (and trippy!) video ! Definitely made my day. On a side note, the whole video was taken place de la Concorde in Paris. The architecture is very memorable (and I was there this afternoon!).

  • Of course, why didn’t I guess Paris right away! Maybe it was the snowy weather, for some reason it doesn’t feel like it would ever snow in Paris. You’ve been in Paris for a while now Royalton, when are you leaving and what are you doing there?

    I’ve been working there for almost a year now, but I’m gonna leave very soon (in 10 days) to the Emirates. Never been there yet, have you been to Dubai or Abu Dhabi ? Take Care.

  • No I have not been to the Emirates yet, neither have I been to Paris – but I have seen other parts of France. Any chance you’ll go north some time soon?

  • European city in either northern Italy or Germany
