Sketchbook of Fashion (Knights Castile Advert) 1940

3 mins United Kingdom Director. Clive Duncan

Modelling wartime fashion is all about simplicity and elegance. Daytime elegance can be achieved without any extra trimmings thanks to good design. Evening elegance is all down to good lines, restrained make-up and a whisper of perfume to complete the look. Of course, the best foundation for that restrained make-up would be Knights Castile toilet soap, wouldn't it?
