Continuing our Scoops of the Month post from Friday, today we look at more Free Wheeling Fashions from 1959.
Small, maneuverable and really as cute as a bug's ear - the Volkswagon and those cool summer boots made of simulated white straw, piped in acid green and heeled in kidskin...clearly by Patinos.
What is summer without an eye for sport? Say a car, for instance - the Dauphine... and say a go coat made of linen-like rayon lined with cotton print inside, buttoned in 'gold' outside. By Milner, topped by a real pith helmet, Lynn Carol. Patinos boots.
Yours by Fiat. The newest circus polka dots splashed on cotton knit. Its a sleeveless pull over widely ribbed in white at boat neck, hem, sleeves and matched by Jamaica shorts. Both by Natric. Fiat 500.
Your own Stanley Steamer hat. A coronet of straw (natural sisal), rounded gently at the crown and tied under the chin with the same silk print that lines the brim. By Dachette. Another Coronet by Dodge.
What a lark! It's you, in a beach towel. Rectangular terry cloth, circled big and bright as headlights. Morgan Jones. Studebaker's a lark too!
Stripes for the Nomad. Brilliantly horizontal on a gold-buttoned cardigan jacket, turned to the vertical on matching mid-calf pants. Majestic makes both in Robaix cotton. The Nomad by Chevrolet.
Safari-minded? Whether your summer jaunts be public or private, a cooling, crease resistant cotton combination is desirable. Here, a brief top eased over a high rise skirt of unpressed pleats. By Gordon Peters. Pontiacs Safari.
I think this whole spread is fabulous. The poses, the cars, the fashions. Oh my!
