Moeva: swimwear classics reimagined

Every time you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to swimwear – every strappy black monokini, every white one piece with gold hardware, every gathered goddess bikini – someone comes along and executes it all a little differently. Moeva sees the classics with fresh eyes. The London-based brand (yes, rainy London can produce amazing swimwear designers too. Someone has to cater for all…

We Are Handsome takes swimwear to The Streets (gallery + video)

We Are Handsome‘s digitally printed swimsuits are so wearable beyond the beach, it was only a matter of time before the brand decided to deliberately blur the line a bit further. The Streets, the latest collection to be introduced by the brand, does just that. Adding an urban edge to the brand’s offerings, The Streets introduces pieces like full sleeved bodysuits and maxi dresses. One…

Brazilian swimwear, Brazilian babe: Izabel Goulart for Cia Maritima

Brazil somehow manages to produce swimwear labels and supermodels in equal quantities. Cia Maritima swimwear and model Izabel Goulart – both Brazilian – are a dream pairing in this campaign. Swimwear in 2012 is heavily geared towards the patterned and the colourful, two qualities which stand out twice as much against bronzed skin like Goulart’s, and the saturated imagery doesn’t exactly hinder the effect either.…

That golden age of mesh bikinis & sand-covered bottoms: Minimale Animale

To say something is infused with nostalgia is, these days, hardly a rarity. We want our fashion shoots and campaigns to call up the feeling of some golden age, some time when the sun was brighter and lives were less stressful and hairstyles were somehow sexier. So what varies is more the how it’s done, and the how well. Minimale Animale are masters at creating…

Candice Swanepoel, the best thing for your swimwear brand

Thousands of people who had previously never heard the words Agua de Coco just did. Many of them aren’t the target audience for the Brazilian swimwear label; some of them are. But that’s the power of landing a Victoria’s Secret model in your campaign, the power of a name like Candice Swanepoel. Going beyond just fashion media, every news outlet and men’s interest website will…

We Are Handsome for Ben Sherman: swimwear with a British twist

When two fashion labels with opposing aesthetics meet ends, it’s bound to raise the level of doubt and scepticism. You either expect a one-sided collaboration or a forceful mix of two styles. However, shutting the critics and blending ingredients together, swimwear label We Are Handsome has collaborated with British brand Ben Sherman for a capsule collection for spring 2012 / summer 2013. Putting quality into…

Cintia Dicker is your next James Bond girl

Regardless of whether there’s a new Bond film on the horizon or not, the appeal of the ’60s bombshell Bond Girl simply never dies. When there is a new instalment due to hit screens we simply have a good excuse to revisit the nostalgia of the 1960s spy genre with even more fervour than usual. Enter the new campaign from Wildfox Swim, brilliantly timed to…

Travelteq’s new swimwear range

Travelteq, well known for their reliable travel bags, suitcases and anything handy when on the move, recently introduced a couple of essentials for a sun, sea and sand vacation. Made in Portugal, their new swimming shorts will be a nice alternative to Orlebar Brown trunks and an improvement upon the dozens of Hawaiian prints out there this season.

Swimwear for men: Robinson Les Bains at Pitti

Orlebar Brown may have the understated, English side of the mens swimming trunk market covered, but for something with a little bit of European flair it’s worth checking out the latest from Robinson Les Bains. Christophe Vérot – an ex-water polo player – started up the brand in 2007 after experiencing that frustration we all feel from time to time: the kind where you search…
