2000s Comme des GARCONS / Peggy Moffitt / Rudi Gernreich Wool Bikini Top

$ 0.00
I know most people don't consider 2004 to be "vintage" but to me vintage is not so much about age as it is about enduring style that lasts through the ages. That is why I didn't hesitate to add this amazing piece to the Swank collection.
I can only imagine what it was like when CDG founder/designer Rei Kawakubo met with model/style icon Peggy Moffitt to go through Rudi Gernreich's archives to choose designs for the CDG Moffitt line. I would have loved to have been there, looking though the designs, waiting for Peggy to tell stories about Rudi and his genius. The idea behind the project was to have Comme des Garcons recreate some of Gernreich's most iconic designs and indeed, it was a huge success. Most pieces were sold before they even got to the floor.
This amazing top was clearly modeled after the one Peggy is wearing in the photo below. It is made from yummy "garmnet milled" boiled wool, the kind Rudi would have picked. The black on red is not a print! The pieces are sewn together, just like Rudi would have done. There is a hidden back zipper for easy on/off. It is a whimsical and wonderful design... so iconic and cool. It is truly a piece of fashion history.
The top came to me new, with the retail tag still attached (fyi.. it retailed for $420). It is in MINT condition.
