Prior to its current incarnation as an American apparel store, Abercrombie & Fitch was a prestigious purveyor of sporting goods from its flagship premises on Madison Avenue and 45th Street. This Spring catalogue comes from the Madison Avenue store and contains 29 art-deco style illustrations of their latest ladies' fashions. There are outfits for sports - golf, tennis, horse riding, hiking and swimming - but also outfits suited for excursions, walking the dog and cruising on an ocean liner. A complete wardrobe for the modern woman.
