We at Metrogypsie, are a Styling & Wardrobe Consultation brand with a Work Style blog (www.metrogypsie.org) based in London.
We were recently part of a huge project for a client as the stylists and afterwards drew the inspiration behind this concept: a recreated photo shoot of Sex and the City Cast and the iconic Beatles Members.
The Beatles Shoot
Apple Records’ creative director Kosh designed the cover. It is the only original UK Beatles album sleeve to show neither the artist name nor the album title on its front cover, which was Kosh’s idea, despite EMI claiming the record would not sell without this information.
He later explained “we didn’t need to write the band’s name on the cover. They were the most famous band in the world”
The Beatles Original ShoOt
McCartney is barefoot and out of step with the other members.
Apart from Harrison, the group are wearing suits designed by Tommy Nutter left of the picture, parked next to the zebra crossing, is a white Volkswagen Beetle motor-car which belonged to one of the people living in the block of flats across from the recording studio.
After the album was released, the number plate, (LMW 281F) was stolen repeatedly from the car. In 1986, the car was sold at auction for £2,53 0.and in 2001 was on display in a museum in Germany. The man standing on the pavement to the right of the picture is Paul Cole,] an American tourist unaware he had been photographed until he saw the album cover months later.
