It’s summer here again and some of us will be hitting beaches and pools in the northern hemisphere with a vengeance.
My favourite lingerie store in HK, Sheer, has just launched their new range of swimwear-perfect for the most dressy poolside event to the most casual beach gathering.
Brands include Ejerby, Violet Lake and my fave Aussie brand, Zimmerman.
Violet Lake, also stocked at Net-a-Porter, is particularly interesting. The concept behind Violet Lake is simple; there are six different styles of interchangeable bikini tops and six bottoms and all of these come in five different sizes and in thirteen different colours. Uniquely, all the bikini tops have tie fastenings so that you can really fit them to your body and make them as supportive as you need them to be. The colours have been chosen so that they harmonise with at least two others within the range, so you don’t have to conform to wearing the same coloured top and bottom and allows you to create a unique ensemble. I also love the Bond inspired names. If you spend your days by the water, let a combination of Pussy, Domino or Jinx tempt you! Just make sure you get Bond, James Bond spread that SPF on liberally and keep hydrated with a combo of water and a dry martini.
