1935 Catalina Swimsuits + Hollywood

Starlets, Hollywood and Swimwear, a winning combination. Catalina used this to their advantage in creating advertisements featuring all 3.

 Orry Kelly designed these wonderful suits for Catalina in 1935 while he was designer for Warner Brothers. 'Shades of Old Monterey' with serape stripes. And Warner Brothers also supplied the actresses, a winning combo.

 I find this ad from 1935 quite intriguing. Again it features Orry Kelly, Warner Brothers, Hollywood and starlets a winning combination. Worthy to note, the two piece suits by Catalina. But this ad also features Jantzen and Gantner swimsuits.

And finally another Catalina ad from 1935, this one features Ginger Rogers. I adore all of these.
