Red plaid wool bathing suit, by Claire McCardell for Townley Frocks, American, ca. 1957.This piece is a classic bathing ensemble of red plaid with brass hook closures and multiple spaghetti ties. The open back is quite provocative, showing the designer's interest in erogenous zones. The piecing of the suit shows McCardell's disciplined use of fabric, and her ability to create amazing and unique designs without waste.
