We’ve got a pretty substantial soft spot for yé-yé pop here at Flavorwire, and as such, we’re rather looking forward to the publication of a new book called Yé-Yé! Girls of ’60s French Pop Music. The book is out on December 12, but we’re rather chuffed to have a bunch of images for a preview gallery. They encompass a wide range of the era’s stars, from enduring icons like Françoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot to lesser-known contemporaries like Chantal Kelly — there are album covers, fashion spreads, advertisements, and what appears to be an early version of Vice’s Dos and Don’ts, all blazing with esprit du temps.
Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan
