It depicts a slender woman coquettishly leaning in a doorway and gesturing for quiet with her hands. It hints at a secret seduction. The pure white background brings out the sparkle and character of the female figure at the centre of the image. The emphasis on beauty and a photographic-style realism is reminiscent of American advertising art of the 1950s.

    This seductive advertisement for British lingerie company Kestos shows a woman undressing before presumably going for a swim in the sea. Apart from her feet, her body can only be seen in silhouette from behind a parasol. Like many advertisements from Kestos, this ad plays on eroticism and tries to tempt the viewer by what it conceals. Both the female body and the summery scene are used here to add a sexy and vivacious character to the lingerie it advertises.

    This vintage ad from 1947 was illustrated by prodigious commercial artist Pierre-Laurent Brenot for British lingerie company Kestos. Founded in 1925, Kestos’ advertising often revolved around attractive but everyday-looking women with jolly, inviting expressions. This was not unlike the style prominent in American advertising in the 1950s, which was heavily influenced by Hollywood cinema. Brenot was known as the father of the French pin up and had illustrated for designers as influential as Jacques Fath, Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga.

    This 1949 ad for a British lingerie company would have been shocking in other parts of the world, but in a lascivious post-war France it was perfectly at home. It depicts a nude woman, her breasts covered by the company’s name, Kestos. She seems coy, with her eyes turned downwards and her arm behind her head. Sporting voluminous blonde hair and manicured nails she is a shining symbol of the glamour and elegance France sought to capture after the war.

    This idyllic beach scene was illustrated by Seigle for British lingerie company Kestos. The affably beautiful blonde woman in the image is depicted with an emphasis on realism; this style is similar to that of the American advertising art produced in the 1950s, with its typical but stunning girl-next-door beauties. This image of a woman waving to the viewer before, presumably, taking a plunge into the sea reflects the increase in tourism by French consumers after the Second World War and the new spirit of optimism and freedom that then gripped the country.

    In this 1952 ad for the British lingerie company Kestos, a semi-clad woman is depicted sauntering away from the viewer. Seen from behind, the impression given is coquettish. An image such as this might have been controversial in 1950s America, but was very much at home in lascivious post-war France. Smoky swirls cast an aura of mystery about the woman, and an alliterative tricolon- ‘seductive, supple, slender’- which reflects the character of the products and the women who wear them.

    In this illustrated beach scene from 1951, a slender woman model the lingerie of British company Kestos while another looks on with admiration. The French text means ‘the envied woman chooses Kestos vahine’. Here ‘vahine’ refers to the European ideal of the Polynesian woman, an archetype best known in France from the paintings of Paul Gaugin who took up residence in Tahiti in 1895. This poster brings that sultry exoticism to a European context, and will make any wall dazzle.
