Swimsuits of the 1960s

This fabulous photo is part of a wonderful book I picked up yesterday titled "California Fashion, from the Old West to New Hollywood". In the chapter called Swimwear: The first wave. I'm still looking through it and will show more in the coming weeks but I just had to share this lovely photo of bathing beauties from the 1960s with you.

From left to right:
Carol Christensen in slit front suit by Rudi Gernreich, $25.00.
Rita Lee in a green check cotton bikini by Rose Marie Reid.
Jill St John in Rose Marie Reid blue check button tank suit $24.
Stephanie Powers in Rudi Gernreich patchwork knit suit wit plastic belt, $24.
Joan Blackman in Catalina white rib.
Silo in Elizabeth Stewart two piece cotton print, $20.
Barbara Eden in Cole yellow knit bikini, $16.
Julie Payne in forefront, in Catalina black dotted bikini $13.

I love them all but that Rudi Gernreich patchwork piece I have never seen before. You can click on the image to enlarge it to see more details. Enjoy!

The patchwork suit is fabulous. And I like the spotty Catalina bikini too. Great find.
