Surf, sand and Speedo’s latest swim campaign

Mention of Australia swimwear label Speedo often conjures up images of skin-tight men’s trunks and the kind of racer-back swimsuits spotted in the Olympic pool. But the brand’s summer 2014 campaign sets out to prove there’s more to it than that. Starring model, TV presenter, and Speedo ambassador Rachel Finch, the campaign is set against a backdrop of Byron Bay surf and sand. The bikini…

Chasing the sun in vibrant bikinis: Cia Maritima

“Follow the Sun” was the motto of Cia Maritima for spring / summer 2015, and it made sense: these were swim pieces of such vibrant optimism they seemed to flat-out refuse even the remotest possibility of a cloudy day. The collection featured 19 ethnic-inspired prints, with tropical and Peruvian prints as the highlights. Unique shapes saw folded-down waistlines mimicking an unzipped wetsuit, short-length bodysuits, and…

Irina Shayk’s bikini body is even better in pineapple prints

Put a bikini on the right body, and it’s not that hard a sell. Irina Shayk is the body, and Agua Bendita’s swimsuits – boldly printed with tropical palms, toucans and pineapples – fit it to perfection. Shayk’s tanned skin and beestung lips only serve to make the brand’s summer 2014 campaign all the more alluring.

A blonde of perfect proportions: Shané van der Westhuizen (NSFW)

There’s a word for Shané van der Westhuizen bounding topless and carefree across a beach, and that word is ugh. Perhaps not so much a word as a sound, to be relied upon where all real words fail – exhaled more than spoken, half in acknowledgement and half in resignation. Starring in Zulu & Zephyr’s spring 2014 campaign, van der Westhuizen is all perfect proportions,…

IYA Swimwear does slick, sporty, sexy

Lingerie-inspired. Slick and sporty. Somehow these two concepts seem disparate, not the kind of elements that would gel together easily.
