In the spring of 1955, Cole of California introduced a new brilliant blue color they called Cole Blue. The suit was made from a new fabric called Warshfast Laton that would not fade through a summer in salt water, chlorine pools and sun. This suit was designed by Margit Fellegi. That draping around the waist makes the model look even tinier than she is. And that wing on one bust serves to balance the draping on the opposite side. This suit probably came with removable shoulder straps, but I think it looks great without them. Don't you?
