Window shopping on-line is a major hobby of mine. Since I write so often, it’s difficult to avoid looking at the latest fashions. Net-a-porter is one site that I visit regularly. The site is gorgeous, and the merchandise is curated so well it seems like each piece could be museum worthy. As I scoped the site today, I thought I had clicked on the wrong tab after looking at this swimsuit.

The Mazzy suit, by Agent Provocateur, looks strikingly similar to Rudi Gernreich‘s suit I included in a previous post on July 9th. While there are small differences in the cutouts and color, the Mazzy seems like an homage to Gernreich’s 1971 creation.
