♛The Details

A fab ca. 1970s romper by designer Gabar of New York. I often see these same suits dated to the 1950s and 1960s, but a quick check of the Union label will reveal a somewhat later vintage. I think this company knew a classic style and kept making them and making them VERY well for a number of years.

The fabric is a delightful jumble of harlequin squares in aqua, apple green, hot pink, and a touch of citrus orange. It feels/looks like a silk jersey, but is probably a well-done synthetic. The cute double straps are pink cotton blend, the same fabric used inside as a lining. These straps can be unbuttoned for sunning or to tie, halter style. Princess seams, an hourglass fit, smocked side panels, and a seamed bra inside. Bubble-cut pink cotton panty bottoms are layered over by the cute harlequin shortie-shorts, so you can romp in the surf gleefully and without fear of overexposure. A sturdy back Talon zipper keep everything neat and tidy.
