The brightly colored, playful SUZIE ZUZEK prints of Lilly Pulitzer’s clothing were a staple of American fashion in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s—worn by members of society from Palm Beach to Nantucket, actresses, models, and stylish men and women all over the world. One could always spot a “Lilly” with its undeniable characteristics: clean, comfortable lines; bright, vivid colors; and fantastical designs. Whether at the beach, on the links, or at a cocktail party, these simple shifts for women and girls and jackets and trousers for gents were a preppy rite of passage. Pratt Institute–educated Suzie Zuzek’s artwork was the basis for most of the fabric designs used by Pulitzer from 1962 to 1985. Suzie Zuzek for Lilly Pulitzer: The Artist Behind an Iconic American Fashion Brand,1962–1985 is the first book introducing Zuzek the artist and presenting a selection of her designs, which included monkeys sipping martinis, dancing flowers, colorful seashells, and op-art geometrics that attracted the eye of such notables as Jacqueline Kennedy and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. It was thought that these designs were lost forever. Luckily, they were recently discovered allowing for a celebration of the previously unknown artist, her story, and her original watercolor drawings. © Suzie Zuzek for Lilly Pulitzer by Susan Brown and Caroline Rennolds Milbank, Rizzoli Electa, 2020.
