A 1963 shoot for Harper’s Bazaar “Bubble’ Spring Collection in Paris by American photographer Melvin Sokolsky, featuring model Simone D’Aillencourt ‘floating’ inside a plexiglass bubble.

Long before the days of Photoshop, the floating effect was achieved by way of doing the thing for real, with a crane and ‘invisible’ wires. It’s as if Simone is actually suspended above the streets of Paris, because she is.
