Strapped and sporty

Where once swimwear options were strictly limited, the bikini trends for 2011 and into 2012 span a vast gamut of styles. At one end of the spectrum you can find feminine, vintage-inspired styles. At the other, sporty, sexy monokinis with edgy statement strapping.

This stunning photo series by Antony Nobilo focuses squarely on the latter. Fabric crosses over, twists, turns, and straps the body with hugging closeness. The styling by Sarah-Jane Cook adds to the modern feel by way of edgy accessories: studded cuffs, layers of chains, leather pieces.
