vintage ad prints - Bally by Villemot

I am particularly fond of these old advertising prints for Bally, a Swiss luxury fashion house.  The first image is available from a shop here in Geneva for around 1,200 CHF, I would just love to get my hands on it!

The artist, Villemot (Bernard, 1911-1989) was a popular French graphic artist known for his advertising prints since the mid 1940's.  These Bally shoe prints are from the 1980's and earlier.

They are quite large and would look absolutely brilliant in a grand minimalist frame with wide white board surrounding the prints.  Then, hung on a plain wall in the living room above a vase of bold flowers... very cool!
