Gold swimsuit with double straps
Not only is swimwear inspired by eveningwear, but the same has happened in reverse. In 2008, Zambesi’s Elisabeth Findlay used a gold vintage Rose Marie Reid swimsuit as inspiration for an intricately cut stretch dress in her collection. Alluding to the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie studio, home of the Hollywood musical in the 1940s and 50s, she called it MGM. It is styled with a vintage cream swim cap with star motif.
