This is a large size poster for Reard of California. "The first bathing suit of the world, for all the biggest stars of the world". Louis Reard and Jacques Heim, a couturier designer from Cannes, invented the two piece bathing suit. After the atomic bomb testing in 1946 on the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands, Reard named this fashion bomb "The Bikini, smaller than the smallest bathing suit in the world". This invention made a big scandal and was forbidden in many cities until the end of the sixties. "Reard of California" become a trade mark of a sexy bathing suit, as seen in this poster.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
