McMullan for Caprolan

By: bethkleber

James McMullan designed and illustrated this piece for Caprolan nylon during his first year at Push Pin; it appeared in the September 7, 1966 issue of Women’s Wear Daily. The ad touts, “Adelaar made its paisley-print blouse of Caprolan® Nylon because of what Caprolan makes of color” and indeed McMullan skillfully employs just black and orange to emphasize the dyeability of the fabric. But really, I’m drawn to the multiple frames and sense of movement.
