Summer is over, people. That chill in the air? It’s here to stay. But if you’re missing summer already, the humidity is still intact for Rudi Gernreich, the recently-revived ’60s brand that combined sexual liberation with avant-garde shapes: the monokini, the “no-bra-bra,” even the thong bathing suit! Now under the direction of Neville Wakefield and Camilla Nickerson, the brand asked Gray Sorrenti to take Polaroids of her friends, creating a breezy link between that innovative retro energy and the brand’s new chapter. Get lost in the humidity below.
