The Swimsuit charts the evolution of this fabulous garment from woollen Victorian bathing costume through its early courture fashion history and sportswear associations to the slick luxury of swimwear represented in the media and advertising today. Encompassing a century's worth of fashions - including the jet-set resort styles of 1920s Europe, the glamour looks of the 1930s Hollywood screen sirens, and carefree California beach life in teh 1950s and 60s - the book shows how the swimsuit has undergone transformations in line with our developing obsessions and lifestyle trends.
