Summer’s going swimmingly
Barbara Polo, Witchery Womenswear Design Manager, gives a five-minute lowdown on the latest swimwear collection
What inspired this range?
It all started when we found the beautiful, pastel-coloured tropical print for our international print house. We mixed it with natural palettes and linen fabrications, both major trends coming from international runways.
Top trend to try this season?
A square neckline top is a key silhouette style for swimwear. Another option is the rash vest, which is stylish and functional for a day at the beach.
Tips for wearing bold colours?
For daytime dressing, I suggest wearing dark printed pieces with denim shorts. By night, pair them with eveningwear staples. Very popular now are berry tones, which make you feel beautiful in the midst of a hot summer. Full-piece swimsuit, R1 099, bikini top, R599, and bikini briefs, R499, all Witchery
