This bikini with matching maxi skirt was designed by Donald Brooks for Sinclair in 1970. The halter top has very long strings that tie at the back of the neck and then wrap around and around, however you choose. The maxi skirt can be worn at the waist, the hips, or even over the shoulders when you've had enough sun. All in black nylon. Sold for $95 in 1970 (about $571 in today's dollar.)
