To swim or not to swim. That is the question posed by these eye-watching and decorative bathing suits filmed June 4 by VISNEWS at a Paris display on the Pavilion D'Ermenonville, Bois de Boulogne.
Shaded by colourful umbrellas, an appreciative - mainly male - audience sat round tables along the promenade to watch the swimsuits of 1959 go by.
One and two piece nylon bikinis, sarongs and elastic suits were popular choices. Twelve of the styles represented the signs of the Zodiac.
In fact there were bathing suits for everyone...the sunbather and swimmer alike.
