Modeling Pyjamas and Jewelry
1960s

Black and white: "JM's Mirror Image"
"Black reflects white in these acetate-and-rayon crepe lounging pyjamas from the JM at-home collections," declares illustrator and designer Betty Braden's 1960s newspaper ad for the San Francisco-based Joseph Magnin store. "For further reflection are the disarming black or white enameled upperarm bracelets in two widths." Price of the "peejays," $36.00; the bracelets, $2.00 each.
