Continuing the WU investigation of unusual bathing suits, here's an aluminum bathing suit from 1966, modeled by Donyale Luna
. It was featured in the French film Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?
(Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo?
) which wikipedia describes as "a satirical art house movie spoofing the fashion world and its excesses."
Predictions from 1928 of how women would be dressing in 1978 and beyond, modeled at the "Dream of Fair Women" charity ball. From the San Antonio Light
- May 6, 1928:
"It is taken for granted that the honeymoons of that period will be spent in airplanes, and Mrs. Campbell's outfit is distinctly designed for aviation."
"Miss Faith Celli, of London, wore her conception of what the nun of 1980 will wear. It is immediately recognizable as a convent garb, but shown unmistakably the influence of Reinhardt's "The Miracle," particularly in the tall headgear and collar forming plane formation. Several clergymen who saw the costume pronounced it an ideal one, expressing splendidly the simplicity and seclusion of life in a convent of the future."
"It seems to be the more or less general opinion of the women who participate in the ball that the women of the future will go in less and less for skirts. Mrs. Donald Armstrong Jones appeared in a charming walking suit consisting of loose jacket of soft, clinging material, and breeches marking a complete departure from the present day 'plus-fours.'"
Once in the fabled past, mighty action jeans stalked the planet's butts.
Brought to you by the 1960s. Groovy!
