1960s RARE leopard COLE of California SCANDAL swimsuit xs | new spring
Scandalous 1964 swimsuit! Done in a super thick soft nylon jersey that feels textural. Black mesh down the front, bra cups with boning and low back. Boy cut legs. Lined at the crotch.
Margit Fellegi designed this suit for Cole of California in 1964. It created a scandal and was aptly named the "Scandal Suit". It released to the press in 1964, with runway presentation of models holding mock front page headlines screaming "scandal" in bold print. They dropped the papers on cue, revealing what was, at the time, one of the most overtly sexy and daring swimsuits ever marketed. According to Fellegi, even nice girls would become a bit scandalous once they donned the sliced-up suit.
