We, at Mimi Berlin, can spend lot’s of our time looking at make-up ads and campaigns, especially the older and American ones. We do find them intriguing: the way these photo’s, texts (Come play in our Yardley!) and gifts lure you into buying a product is almost magic (in our opinion) Below some of Yardley of London advertisements for the “Slicker” collections made in the 1960s and 1970s. The name “Slicker” alone is genius by itself!
