Vintage Bodysuit Vintage Jumpsuit Vintage Ski Racing Suit

Circa 1980

In a decade exemplified by creative and futuristic fashion, the first Racysuits are born, appearing on the ski slopes of Northern California.

Norma Lausmann, an avid USSA Alpine Masters Ski Racer and seamstress starts hand sewing neon ski racing suits for herself and husband Joe. The eye catching designs were soon sought after by fellow ski racing friend Robert "Bob" Bernard. The adventurous trio surprised onlookers with their wild ski suits as they raced in Downhill and Slalom Masters Ski Races - often winning Gold, Silver and Bronze in their age class. Their truly adventurous friendship and zest for life had them racing around the world well into their 80's wearing psychedelic spandex ski suits.

The ski suits took on a new life when grand-daughter to Bob Bernard, Marina Barnes, got her hands on the vintage suits and began wearing them everywhere she dubbed psychedelic spandex appropriate -- Coachella, Burning Man, The LOVE Parade, Ghost Ship and Daybreaker.
