About the Poster: Part of the Olympia Knitting Mills corporation in Washington State, Wil Wite was a clothing company specializing in functional outerwear, from sweaters to swim suits. Here, an interesting artistic choice has been made: the silhouette of the product advertised being entirely absent. Instead, we imagine our ideal swimsuit upon the undefined body of the blonde waterskier. Variants of this design show the same image in vertical format and with a yellow backdrop. Very rare.
