Made in California
These are the sport clothes that the stars and the California shops bring home from their shopping bouts in New York. For the hardworking movie girls slacks are a uniform. Driving to the studios, sitting around their gardens, they all wear them. Here, Dolores del Río [1905-1983] flops in a navy poplin overall, the most comfortable garment on earth. Best. Neiman-Marcus, Dallas. I Magnin, California.

Dolores del Río once more in a one-piece tennis play-suit with the shorts flaring out from her slim brown legs, white as the brand-new tennis balls that she carries about in a wicker basket. This suit has four patch pockets and buttons down the front to the waist, and it is made of a new Peter Pan matelassé picqué. Sanfordized, which means that it won’t shrink and will wash like a dream. At Best, and at I. Magnin, California.
Harper’s Bazaar, December 1936, pp. 90-91.
