As you might have guessed we love our swimwear top 10 lists, and hopefully so do you. One more of this season’s main trends is stripes. Stripes is a design element that has been around for many years and it keeps coming back. Many fashion designers chose it again this year and found ways to create unique and contemporary pieces. Our list comprises of our own favourite swimwear, including bright and pastel colours, classic and innovative items.
2EROS – Anchor Brief
The Australian brand celebrates the nautical culture this season with its Anchor swimwear collection and makes sure everyone is in summer mood. The Anchor swim brief by 2EROS is a cross between trunks and briefs, and features a small anchor at the side that will make you feel like a pirate. Find it here.
2XIST – Cabo Fiesta Trunk
One of the most interesting designs with stripes that we’ve seen this season is the Cabo Fiesta from 2XIST. The American brand has created a unique piece inspired by print motifs from the American Southwest. We would even say that it represents sound waves. The trunk is low rise and comes in red and black, but our favourite one is the bright red. You can find it here.
CA-RIO-CA – Eden sunga
Staying in the same country but finding inspiration from a different one. The American/Brazilian brand has designed the Eden sunga to show off the beauty and spirit of Rio de Janeiro. Combining floral and stripes in exotic colours and a sexy cut, this swimwear is perfect for anyone who wants to become part of the eclectic Brazilian culture. Find it here.
Emporio Armani – Iconic Lines Brief
