Your purse is on fire!

— by Alyson Walsh


This week’s most wanted is a David Bailey 1960s portrait. Pure Sixties, Pure Bailey is a collection of the 72- year old photographer’s black and white images on sale at Bonhams. As a child of the sixties, this is the perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of my decade. But That’s Not My Age can’t decide between Jean Shrimpton and Mick Jagger – though the Shrimp’s brilliant quote about Bailey might just sway me, ‘Women love him. Gays adore him. Children and animals run to him. Mother’s dote on him. He is universally attractive, except to fathers.’

Which portrait would you choose?

If you’re in London, there’s also a small pop-up exhibition celebrating 50 years of Carnaby Street.

Pure Sixties, Pure Bailey runs from March 7 to April 7.
