Norma Kamali has designed a pillow and–of course–it's made of swimsuit fabric

In 1976, the actress Farrah Fawcett was photographed for a poster wearing a sizzling red one-piece swimsuit, her tousled blond waves cascading over her shoulders, her wide smile blinding. The image has since become iconic and so, too, has the designer of the suit in question, Norma Kamali, a fashion veteran who, over the course of 53 years, has become known for her innovative, prescient creations like sleeping bag coats (worn by doormen at Studio 54, no less) and high-heeled sneakers. This month, Kamali is expanding her deep familiarity with bathing suits to characteristically unexpected territory: She is launching a home line whose pieces are covered in swimwear fabrics.
