Oh Sandy! This sock-hoppin' retro two piece bikini design will have you lookin' peachy keen, jellybean! Inspired by Sandy's wardrobe in the carnival scene, the top is cut from an original vintage 1970s Grease T-shirt that has been redesigned into a cute retro top with short sleeves and lapels. The satin-finished bottoms are a sexy high-waisted design with vintage charms and accents that range from buttons from the movie (Pink Ladies, Rydell High, T Birds, Grease) to an adorable little 57 Chevy Greased Lightning, high school megaphone, and classic dice. A soft 50s style belt meets in front with a collectible 70s belt buckle featuring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. This is a must have for that 50s photo-shoot, a die-hard collector, or simply to prove that you're not "too pure to be a Pink Lady!"
The suit is sized SMALL to MEDIUM and was used in the editorial shoot shown in the item's images. It was worn with full undergarments during the shoot and is perfectly clean.
Each one of these custom couture designs is unique and considered as a piece of artwork created by designer Colleen Kelly. The vintage materials and artistic elements that go into creating these one-of-a-kind "swimsuits" were assembled from original collector, art, and memorabilia sources around the globe. Colleen’s 25+ years of swimwear design experience, along with her seasoned talent in styling for the fashion industry, went into each piece. You will find a perfect blending of the vintage logos, embellishments, and graphics of the subject pop culture icons, bands, or artists featured in the design with the sexy, streamlined fitting requirements of the woman’s body. They aren’t "cheap" but they are more than worth the premium price for celebrities, artists, photographers, and customers that need a custom "styled" look to maintain their image.
Some of these items are rare and irreplaceable, which precludes them from being recreated in most cases, as only original items were used. The inherent value, and sometimes fragile nature, of these collector items makes it very difficult to manufacture more than one piece and prohibits us from offering returns, exchanges & etcetera, so all sales are final.
