The Milanese Swimwear Exhibition
A journey through the history of the swimsuit, from its beginnings in the 1920s to today. One hundred years in which the staple swimwear has gone through countless variations, from the wool and jersey jumpsuits to the monokinis and thongs of the 1980s and 1990s. Here will be the exhibition: “On the wave of time-Waves of fashion, history and innovation”, open until May 29 at the ADI Design Museum in Milan, a project born of the collaboration between the Como Aldo Galli Academy of Art and Design- IED network and Yamamay. Students of painting, visual languages and fashion textile design worked to tell the evolution of this garment. One-piece swimsuits, bikinis and trikinis are the protagonists, in the most diverse declinations: those of the 1930s, when the bottom was first detached from the body; the 60s crochet; 1970s with optical patterns and bold cuts; 90s with push-up bras and an eye for the style of the Spice Girls. As for the 1990s, there is a reference to the red one-piece swimsuit worn by Pamela Anderson in the TV series “Baywatch”, the years when bikinis and bathing suits became an integral part of disco looks, as well as gymnastic outfits.
