VINTAGE SWIMWEAR

A History of Twentieth Century Fashions

by SARAH KENNEDY

See other books on collecting click here

New softcover book, published 2010, 304 pages with beautiful full-colour and B+W photos throughout.

Encompassing a century's worth of fashions - including the jet-set resort styles of 1920s Europe, the glamour looks of 1930s Hollywood screen sirens, and carefree Californian beach life in the 1950s and 1960s, Vintage Swimwear shows how the swimsuit has undergone transformations in line with our developing obsessions and lifestyle trends. Pivotal moments such as the birth of the bikini by Louis Reard in 1947 and the launch of the swimwear category in beauty pageants, as well as influences from brands who broke new ground with their innovations, are captured in images and advertisements from the time, while specially photographed vintage pieces reveal the true-to-life fashions women wore.

A glorious, glossy guide to the swimsuit in all its incarnations, the book heralds the arrival of this once-practical garment into mainstream fashion.

Chapters include:

  • Early History
  • From Brighton to Biarritz
  • The St Tropez Set
  • Star Quality
  • The Beauty Pageant
  • The Birth of the Bikini
  • The Fabulous Fifties
  • Far-Out Grooves
  • The Beach Babe Revolution
  • Calendar Girls and Pinups
  • Let's Get Physical
  • New-Luxe Nineties
  • Post-Millennium Trends
  • Designers and Brands
