[Photos] A Visual Anthology of Life and Fashion of 1970 Saigoneers

One of Saigon's most compelling attractions has always been the people, and this collection of photos taken from the 1970s shows us just why Saigoneers are a fascinating breed.

Women strut in colorful pastel slacks, leather skirts, high-waisted bellbottom pantaloons and perpetual-summer dresses as well as increasingly form-fitting áo dài in this collection of photos shared by Flickr user manhhai. A testament to western influences on the city at the time, they juxtapose more modest but still foreign-inspired clothing worn by men and children. The shots reflect a zenith for the country's rapidly changing fashion sense. Check them out below:
