From retro-inspired one-pieces to printed bikinis, there’s no shortage of swimwear options this season. For sleek, athletic-looking styles, look to Loro Piana’s debut swim collection, which is embellished with nautical charms. Independent swimwear brand Cossie+Co offers swimsuits and mix-and-match bikinis in its signature honeycomb stretch fabric, with colours ranging from flamingo pink to lime green, which “evoke a feeling of happiness”, says founder Isobel Elphinstone. For all-out glamour, look to Ulla Johnson, Isabel Marant and Johanna Ortiz, who have one-shoulder styles accentuated with flouncy ruffles, while the more adventurous can opt for the “Sex Wax” swimsuits by Louisa Ballou: her tropical prints and sensual cutouts have found favour with the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.
