AVENGERS MEET TWIGGY 1967
Spy Vibers may remember seeing film clips of Patrick MacNee with Twiggy in one of our fashion spots last year, Swinging London. The images came from a promo event at Teddington Studios, London in 1967 to show off new designs for The Avengers by Pierre Cardin and Alun Hughes. Patrick MacNee, Diana Rigg, Twiggy, and others posed for Photographer Terry O'Neil. As you would imagine with this crowd, things got pretty playful! At one point, weightlifter George Manners actually raised Dame Diana up over his head for a shot. The scene was filmed by British Pathe and originally screened as Rigg's New Rigs. Running just over one minute, the news clip is a wonderful time capsule that captures the style and spirit of these UK icons at their Spy Vibe peak.
