The Future is Now: A Spring Shoot from the Paper Archives

Amid all of the recent Mad Men hype, it's easy to forget that, stylistically, not everyone was as buttoned-up as the characters on the show. The '60s were also about style-upheavals: couture inspired by streetwear, impossibly cool style influencers (Mary Quant, anyone?), bright colors and bare skin. In honor of that side of the '60s -- and in honor of the insanely nice weather we're having! -- we dug into the Paper archives to recover this April 1997 ode to futuristic fashions of the Don Draper-era. Check out these images from spring fashion spread "The Future Is Now," styled by the fabulous Patricia Field, which is heavy on the Courrèges and Paco Rabanne.
