The First Monokini: Trying to make the Topless Swimsuit happen in 1964
Rudi Gernreich and the Monokini
W hen we think of the monokini today, we picture those fiddly one-piece swimsuits that give you awkward tan lines, popularised by the Kardashian and Hilton sisters. In this press shoot I found in the LIFE archives , photographer Paul Schutzer captures model Daphne Dayle showing off the topless design for a pack of hungry male journalists. Rudi and his mother fled Austria after its annexation to Nazi Germany, where Hitler had banned nudity, among many other acts.

If you think that Kim Kardashian's recent bondage-inspired bikini was out there, you will be pretty shocked by how innovative - and outrageous - swimsuits were in the s, '60s and '70s, thanks to avant-garde designer Rudi Gernreich. There were the common, conventional bathing suits of that time, and then there were Gernreich's swimsuits. The Austrian-born designer's wildly fantastic inventions included the first topless bathing suit , the pubikini a swimsuit that intentionally revealed pubic hair, so warning: that's an NSFW link , the thong swimsuit, the monokini a one-piece swimsuit that reveals the breasts and the "No-Bra Bra" made out of two sheer triangular pieces of fabric.

Gernreich and his Jewish mother fled Vienna for California soon after the Nazis accessioned Austria in Around this time, he became romantically involved with Harry Hay, a political activist often called the founder of the modern gay rights movement. Kirtland contacted the designer in and asked him to make a topless suit, he demurred, fearing it would ruin his career.
