News Item: What’s Hamptoning / Vintage French Poster Connoisseur

Growing up, many of us had posters of our favorite bands, movies, and celebrities covering the walls of our bedroom, but none quite like Felicity Selkirk’s. She sells vintage French posters, which Felicity hand-picks in Paris and sells them exclusively online. Each poster is a genuine original, varying in condition. Some of the posters were originally created over 100 years ago, but Felicity only sees beauty in their antique imperfections. Here’s our exclusive interview with the Australian businesswoman.

Picasso’s off to Myer’s annual charity auction

Look at our Picasso vintage french poster all framed up and off to Myer for their Precious Metal Ball. This is Myer’s annual fund raising event to raise money to support those most in need and we’re thrilled to be able to donate this wonderful poster as an auction item.

This exquisite vintage poster is Picasso’s drawing of a peace dove with an olive branch in its beak, with two human feet. The text reads: ‘Picasso 28.12.61 Grapus 28.12.87 Avril 1987. Pour la Paix, pour le Désarmament: Grapus et I’Imprimerie Marchand’, translated as For Peace, For Disarmament.

Myer and the Myer Community Fund are focused on ‘supporting and empowering women and strengthening families’, with a strong focus on supporting women and children impacted by family violence. Helping to break the cycle of family violence in Australia is a key focus of Myer’s program. Myer and the Myer Community Fund support three national charity partners, and also support over 55 local charities working in the family violence area through our store network nationally.

We’re having a ball with Bally!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Over the past century Bally has used Europe’s most celebrated artists to create the artwork for the company’s advertising posters, making these posters collectors items today.

We are fortunate enough to currently have four iconic original Bally vintage posters available via our on-line shop. Bally Kick, The Bally Blonde & Bally Homme Chaussures Orange were all created by the renowned French artist Bernard Villemot. The Bally Kick poster is one of Villemot’s final advertising campaigns. Since his death, Villemot’s memorable images have been increasingly sought after by collectors and many books have been published covering his art.

The fourth Bally we have in stock is the bright, cheerful La Chaussure qui Habille produced by Morvan Hervé in 1952. Meaning “The Dress Shoe” this fabulous poster is one of more than 150 artworks that Hervé completed for advertising campaigns during his prolific career spanning nearly 40 years.

This is your chance to be the owner of one of these incredible original Bally vintage posters.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][qodef_button text=”Shop our range of original Bally vintage posters” target=”_self” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”fa-cart-plus” font_weight=”” text_transform=”” link=”https://vintagefrenchposters.com/product-category/bally/”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Oh Chanel!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In 1985 Andy Warhol designed a series of ads for Chanel depicting the famous No. 5 bottle. In 1997, 10 years after the artists death, Chanel revisited these images for an advertising campaign and the Chanel No.5 by Andy Warhol poster is today a classic vintage French advertising poster.

Warhol’s Chanel prints are highly sought after and exceptionally rare in the art market. This enormous poster is a wonderful fashion statement and the Chanel bottle continues to be seen as a quintessential image of timeless design and glamour.

We are lucky enough to have one of these oversize prints available exclusively online.
