MAKE A SPLASH THIS SUM­MER

CHOOS­ING A SWIM­SUIT CAN BE HARD WORK, BUT NOT WITH THESE FOUR TOP BRANDS

Life & Style Weekend - - CON­TENTS - WORDS: TAM WRIGLEY

With sum­mer fast ap­proach­ing, it’s time to box the win­ter woollies and dust off the sum­mer wardrobe – in par­tic­u­lar, your swimwear col­lec­tion. One sta­ple in ev­ery Aus­tralian’s robe should be a good swim­suit. A good-qual­ity one-piece is the lit­tle black dress of your swim wardrobe and an item well worth in­vest­ing in. If it’s time to buy a new swim­suit, then you’re go­ing to love the leg­work I have done for you for this year’s swimwear must-haves. Kurv Swimwear: This is a de­signer swimwear brand fo­cus­ing on the volup­tuous woman, who loves and em­braces her curves. The idea to cre­ate Kurv was born from the frus­tra­tion that came from not be­ing able to find a swim­suit, to fit a curvy body, that lasted more than one sea­son. The fab­ric comes from the finest Ital­ian mill and is chlo­rine, salt and sun­screen-re­sis­tant for longer-last­ing colour and wear. The tri-di­men­sional elas­tic­ity and the high per­cent­age of Ly­cra elas­tic fi­bre means the fab­ric sculpts the body like a glove, so it won’t lose its shape, even af­ter re­peated wash­ing. Sea­heaven: This is an Aus­tralian brand that cre­ates adorable match­ing swimwear col­lec­tions for the en­tire fam­ily, in­spired by one of Aus­tralia’s favourite beaches: Noosa Heads. It’s known for its fun, con­tem­po­rary prints and sim­ple de­tails – the kind that man­ages to look fresh and classic at the same time. Sea­heaven (pic­tured) is a crowd-pleaser: just what you want when you’re look­ing for some­thing the whole fam­ily will like to wear. Wave­breaker: This sum­mer will be the global launch of a new men’s swimwear brand Wave­breaker – a col­lec­tion that is set to the break the mould in swim at­tire for gents. It’s for the rugged man – the man who lives life to the max, who pushes the bound­aries. This is a com­plete col­lec­tion of 70 de­signs in­clud­ing board­shorts, fit­ted shorts, trunks, swim briefs and for the elite ath­lete, stream­lined jam­mers. The dap­per de­signs look fan­tas­tic, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on gar­ment in­no­va­tion, tech­ni­cal fab­rics, wear­a­bil­ity and com­fort. Opera: Opera’s lux­ury 2019 swim and re­sort col­lec­tion is a sym­phony of stylish so­phis­ti­ca­tion. These state­ment pieces epit­o­mise ele­gance and glam­our. Swim­suits, biki­nis, tank­i­nis and cover-ups come di­rect from the cat­walks of Europe to the beaches of Aus­tralia. Laz­ing around on the yacht or sip­ping cock­tails at the beach bar, you will al­ways be in style. This sea­son, the col­lec­tions draw in­spi­ra­tion from trop­i­cal plants, the wilds of Africa, Ja­panese flo­rals, jew­elled tones, ’50s pin-up, graphics and nau­ti­cal in­flu­ences. It’s cre­ative de­sign with an em­pha­sis on ele­gance and class. Ger­man brands are­known for their metic­u­lous at­ten­tion to de­tail and qual­ity crafts­man­ship and Opera is no ex­cep­tion.
