June 1977 CB7710
Purple slide-side halter tied to a v-kini, with the knot placed over her navel.
TML with dual armpits. N-4.
Christie stands with her hands in her hair looking at the camera (1).
This image completely defines the new slide-side halter and v-kini silhouette, and as such, it marks a radical change from the current fashion of the string halter and string brief. By the early 1980s the slide-side will acquire market share, but the v-kini will completely replace the nombril. Note that foundations again play a role in the bikini.
