The swimming cap scan at left comes from a 1960s L’Officiel, which I got at 14th Street Antiques in Atlanta. I’m not sure what part of this image made a bigger impression–the cap, the model’s heroic expression while doning said cap, or the insane amount of makeup. Whatever it was, after seeing that picture, I wanted something similar.
Luckily, after some digging, I came across this petal swim cap, right, $16.00 at Headcovers Unlimited. I’m sure it will drive all the boys wild this summer.
