1980s COLE of California SCANDAL zebra swimsuit xs small | new summer
The 1980's reboot of the famous 1960's Scandal collection. Done in a light nylon printed in a zebra print with scandalous mesh inserts on the back and sides. Straps are adjustable. Lined.
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.
