Description

Red color separation for an illustration featured in a Mademoiselle magazine editorial on summer clothes titled "Scoops: The Ready Mixers". The editorial's text indicates that this illustration depicts a midriff-baring cotton top with sun-gathering red and black stripes, which is paired with white Arnel sharkskin capris that are belted with fabric that matches the top. A small piece of fabric is attached to the illustration, presumably for color reference.
