Photograph by Nina Leen, 1945.

This shot reminds me of that Italian classic movie about a rich family that bikes and plays around a lot before World War II hits and shit gets real.  I couldn’t for the life of me remember what the film is called because I gave up on it about 15 minutes in, but when I looked up “criterion movie Italian family rich world war II,” Google reminded me that it’s called The Garden of the Finzi-Continis.

I love the whole look on the reclining model, especially those shoes (which I could never in a million years wear without breaking my foot a third time).
