Description

Women's ensemble featured in a Mademoiselle magazine editorial on summer clothes titled "Scoops: The Ready Mixers". According to the text in the editorial, this ensemble includes a midriff-baring cotton top with sun-gathering red and black stripes, which is paired with white Arnel sharkskin pants that are belted with fabric that matches the top. This illustration was probably an alternate to the version that was used for publication.
