So much style! Pénéla N°14 and 15, 1968.


Pénéla was a monthly women’s lifestyle magazine published in France throughout the 1960s and 1970s. The magazine was presented in a library format and was dedicated to fashion, style, beauty, home and garden decor, cooking and the arts. Alongside the many wonderful photos found inside a typical issue, Pénéla featured artist illustrations to accompany famous poems, quotes and short stories.

TVTA is pleased to present selected images from issues N°14 and N°15 from 1968, as part of an ongoing series of Pénéla.
