If those photos weren't so pretentious, I'd really be taking in that Cambio Corsa'ed machine.

That's what they paid him for.

Any idea what that is?

I think it was supposed to drive up the clothes prices by 20% (or more)...funny how the extra-vintage shed has a modern tractor and 2 PE barrels, guess as long as it looks old...

I say he looks great, and the machine is sweet, but where is the willowy model? Surely she will meet him at the villa.

I can't buy all that stuff, but on some level I like to see vintage stuff they decorate the sets with. Remember "Out of Africa" and the brown leather craze following?
I enjoyed looking at LL Bean catalogs to see what boats the Maine yuppies were posed near. I've noticed since the economy went south, all the boats and camp houses have disappeared. The docks are empty.

Does art imitate life, or life imitate art? Are Schwinn balloon tired bikes priced out of sight because people find them artful, or do they want them because they began showing up in upper class advertising?
