Trend Alert: Ladies Who Penguin

June 8, 2005 by kendah

Back in 1955, a few Munsingwear salesmen stumbled across a taxidermist’s storefront in New York only to find it stuffed with penguins. Finding the birds rather genius, the men scooped them up and brought them on the plane with them to a sales meeting in Los Angeles. The rest became an odd story of faming a penguin that grew into Penguin, a not-so-stuffy men’s leisure line. After disappearing off the fashion scene for quite some years, Penguin’s back. And they’ve got a fabulous women’s line to boot. Their clothes still harken back to haute bowling and golf couture, but now they’ve got their looks back with a twist. String bikinis with dollar signs called “New Money,” the “D’Orsay Solid Apron Skirt” and the “Holly Harwood Stripe Dress” leave you feeling like you’ve just jetted yourself from your 1950’s Hollywood bungalow to a Weekend Americain on the white beaches of St Tropez. And you get to be classy and retro-cool all at once!
