When it comes to fashion forecasting, Australian stylists and designers will often look to the world’s fashion capitals to see what’s trending. However, when it comes to swimwear, Australian designers have the upper hand. Often growing up on, or near, the shores, Aussie designers have an innate understanding of beach culture giving them a competitive advantage. Here are some of the hottest Australian swimwear collections this season:
Zimmermann’s Resort Swim Campaign 2014 features deep rose hues, pattern on pattern, zips and leopard print. The casual sexiness of the leopard print, mixed with the femininity of floral, makes for a lethal combination.
Known for their daywear, Shakuhachi presents their very own swimwear range. Shakuhachi designers have worked off the premise that fashion and swimwear don’t have to be mutually exclusive, incorporating daywear fashion trends into their swimwear range. The simplicity of the idea creates a look that is both modern, and effortlessly cool. The collection features aquatic strapped bikini tops and loose short-like bikini bottoms, made out rubber, poly jersey, nylon, lycra and neoprene.
Isola plays with florals, black and tribal prints. The collection features a myriad of one-pieces aimed at women in their 30s and 40s. Designer, Megan Gale, created the collection for women who are strong, confident and daring, yet feminine, elegant and refined.
Triangl swimwear introduces a collection with a sport luxe influence, blending playful metallics, black mesh bikini tops and neoprene bottoms.
JETS: This understated, sophisticated and wearable collection is a must-have this summer. JETS features a large selection on one-pieces, ranging from cutouts to v-necks and florals to block colours. For fashion conscious individuals with practicality in mind, JETS is your go to this season.
