Claire McCardell & Joset Walker Swimwear 1946

What a fabulous image of - not one - but TWO of my absolute favorite sportswear designers, Claire McCardell and Joset Walker. Claire and Joset were contemporaries who went to Parsons together.


Sabine (right) models a 'Pantung Loincloth' swimsuit designed by Claire McCardell and Janet Stevenson (left) models the 'Hug Me Tight' swimsuit designed by Joset Walker. Isn't that zig zag treatment to the edging of Joset's suit fabulous?


Sabine (above) in another wonderful loincloth swimsuit by Claire McCardell. What's interesting to note are the different treatments to the bodice of these three images. The bottom one has a polka dot ascot paired with it. Which is your favorite?
