This armchair travel book chronicles the history of resort wear staples and the start of the jet set era. “Crossing continents, styles, and generations, we travel through the tradition of vacation style, from early beach pyjamas by Chanel and Schiaparelli to sailor stripes, to Pucci and Pulitzer prints, and, of course, to the bikini.” From St. Tropez to Montego Bay, renowned photographers like Newton and Scavullo have captured the most glamorous and playful fashions under the sun.
