Remember the surf movie Endless Summer? Back in 1966 Filmmaker Bruce Brown followed two surfer Mike Hynson and Robert August around the world and filmed them surfing. California, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hawaii, Tahiti.. you name it. If you love the water and travel movies, it is a great documentary movie.
Our version of Endless Summer in the 1960’s features sunwear and bathing suits for both men and women, although most ads show only women in bathing suits. Back in 1960, the bikinis shown were considered very risque,
The sunglasses were considered ‘mod’ or space age fashion. Wrap around frames, black and white checks, and styling we now know as Retro.
