Following Suit

Standard

“Andi” circa early 1960’s.

Go figure that the birth of the bikini and my mother happened at the same time. Of course the bikini’s popularity rose in the 60’s with its appearances in James Bond and surfer flicks. So my mother, who followed a pack of surfers in a van across country to California during this time, followed suit (too punny?).

I recently styled the lookbook for K.Belo‘s summer 2012 collection and thought of this amazing image of my mother when she briefly modeled during that era in a classic polka dot bikini.

K. Belo’s designs are based on vintage swimwear with fabrics aptly from Brazil, including an adorable polka dot bikini that you can mix-and-match to make it your own. I can’t wait until the new collection of swimwear is out in stores…and beach weather, for that matter!
