SHORE THING

Whether you’re plan­ning a sum­mer get­away or a junk trip, we’ve got you cov­ered. vin­cenzo la torre rounds up five swimwear la­bels to know

Prestige (Singapore) - - FASHION -

1. Solid & Striped

The New York-based la­bel, which boasts col­lab­o­ra­tions with cool girls-about­town such as Hi­lary Rhoda and Poppy Delev­ingne, is known for its clas­sic and func­tional swim­suits that, as the name sug­gests, come in plain colours or bold pat­terns such as ver­ti­cal stripes and ging­ham checks.

2. lisa Marie Fernandez

A well-known stylist, Lisa Marie Fernandez, who founded her epony­mous brand in New York more than a decade ago, needs no in­tro­duc­tion. Al­though her neo­prene range fea­tur­ing zip­pers has be­come her trade­mark, this sea­son she’s in­tro­duced pieces in faded and in­digo denim for an un­ex­pect­edly preppy twist.

3. or­lebar brown

Lon­don-based Or­lebar Brown is the go-to la­bel for tai­lored men’s swim shorts that fit like a glove, but the la­bel also of­fers a range of women’s items such as one-pieces printed with Slim Aarons’ pool pho­tos (which also ap­pear on the men’s line), rash guards and colour­ful tow­elling shorts.

4. She Made Me

Hand­made by In­done­sian ar­ti­sans, the cro­chet biki­nis and one-piece bathing suits from the Aus­tralian la­bel come in lim­ited num­bers and are of­ten em­bel­lished with shells and sil­ver pieces. Chloe Dun­lop, the brand’s founder, worked as a buyer be­fore estab­lish­ing the boho-chic line.

5. Marysia

As a for­mer bal­let dancer and surfer, Pol­ish­born de­signer Marysia Do­brzan­ska Reeves knows a thing or two about fit and com­fort. Her line of­fers well-cut biki­nis and mail­lots that avoid prints and in­stead fo­cus on strik­ing sil­hou­ettes and spe­cial de­tails, such as scal­loped edges, which have be­come a sig­na­ture.
