Jacques Heim was a Parisian designer specialising in furs and couture for women and opened his own couture house in the 1930s. As well as starting a chain of sportswear boutiqes, he was renowned for his beachwear and was one of the first designers of the two-piece bikini called the Atome (French for 'atom').
I.Magnin was a San Francisco, California-based department store specialising in high fashion and luxury goods. It was founded by Mary Ann Magnin in 1876 and named after her husband Isaac. The shop began selling lotions and high end baby clothing which expanded to bridalwear and lingerie made from expensive fabrics and laces from Europe. After the 1906 earthquake, I.Magnin stores opened across California and other part of the United States. Their legendary flagship store on Union Square in San Francisco was built in 1948 and was known as the White Marble Palace, highly regarded by the likes of Christian Dior. I.Magnin was bought by Bullock's in 1944 and was later taken over by Macy's who now have a house line called I.Magnin.
