We want to share with you a more intimate look at some of our favourite pieces from the Summer 2021 collection. What inspired them, why we love them, and how to incorporate these styles in your vacation wardrobe.
THE MARLOWE TOP
We’ve designed a new bandeau top and claiming it as a forever-wear tanning essential. Inspired by 70’s-esque summers on the beaches of Mexico and Brazil, where statement and risqué fits are all that matter. This is a minimal bandeau shape with a twist knot feature at centre, to give an updated look to an otherwise classic bikini top. We like to wear our bandeau tops paired with a brazilian or thong style bottom during the day. At night style with a pair of silk wide leg pants, an oversized blazer or wrap top, and layered necklaces.
THE IGGY BOTTOM
A cheeky style bottom heavily influenced by the noughties with its hip grazing fit and ruched sides. Flawless and flattering, the Iggy Bottom is all about embracing the sultry joie de vivre and endless possibilities that summer brings. Pair with the Marlowe bandeau top or mix and match with any of our bikini tops.
THE RYLEE TOP
The Rylee Top was inspired by the 1960’s era of iconic Italian beauty queen Sophia Loren. As Vogue Magazine quoted, “she is glamour personified”. Paying homage to the bombshell beauty look, we’ve designed this style with sculpted underwire cups for support, distinctive pleat detailing at the front and sides, and adjustable straps that can be removed for a second bandeau look. This is also our first foray into using underwire in a bikini top. Pair with a wrap skirt and a dramatic cat-eye for the full Loren effect.
THE SADIE BOTTOM
This style is an irresistible brazilian cut with thick side straps and gathered detailing at the front and back centre. We’ve made the ruching adjustable so you can create a coverage that you desire. Designed to compliment the Rylee Top, we also love to see these bottoms work as a statement seperate with one of our more minimal tops such as the Uma bralette, Marlowe bandeau, or Kaia triangle top. So what are you waiting for? Sashay onto the scene and set pulses racing in this eye-catching piece.
THE ANAIS TOP
We wanted to give a subtle lift to those that feel they need it. The Anais Top is a halter design with twist neck detailing that works to sculpt and give a natural enhancement to your bust. We’ve included a thicker band for support, adjustable straps and a seamless clasp finish at the back. We envision this top to be a staple to take you (well supported) through seasons.
THE HANA BOTTOM
A reworked style from the Sommer Swim archival collection. The Hana bottom is a cheeky V cut revamped for the Alexis lovers of old. We launched this style as part of our first ever collection in 2017 which helped catapult Sommer Swim onto the international scene, and this new version is designed for the same stardom. Featuring cross-stitching, the bottom sits flush to the skin and is best worn mid waist.
A print destined for centre stage, we can imagine donning the Allegria to a Studio 54 party in the late 70’s paired with a fluid high slit skirt or a sleek silk pant suit. Defined by abstract swirls in a kaleidoscope of pastel hues. Step into the ritzy world of the Allegria print with a new found zest for life.
