This photo is from “The Rudi Gernreich Book” and shows some of his 1965 Resort Wear Collection. Gernreich was known for his fashion forward clothing which used shapes, colors and non-traditional materials in new and exciting ways. While it’s filled with many inspiring images of his designs- modeled mostly by his muse, Peggy Moffit- this is one of my favorites due to my love of all things plexiglass. These ultra fabulous sun visors were made by accessories designer Layne Nielson and were the perfect compliment to Gernreich’s futuristic vision. Even today, I think these outfits would cause quite a stir on the beach, don’t you?
