Playing the field

....in what I think could be a sweater bathing suit - one of those wonderfully sick inventions of the late 60s. The bathing suit is by Cole of California and the year is 1969.

Another bathing suit by Brigance for Sinclair.

Outfit by Sport Trio.

Something quite, quite sick in this ad if you look a little deeper. These lovely droplets are made by mink oil! Well. It makes for a good picture, at any rate....
