Swimming back in time

Retro-style swimwear is making its way back on the catwalks for this summer. The old silhouettes are so much more feminine than the modern minimal looks, so the vintage return makes me happy. You can't but agree that the designer have made the right choice this season.


Michael Kors

Gucci

I have also found my own photograph posing in a retro bikini. It was taken last summer, though...




Here's also a 1950s swimwear ad. There's so much modern design can learn from the vintage versatility. The old swimwear used to serve not only as swimsuits but as tops and bodies. Ah, and just look at that cape that turns into a pool dress. Enjoy.
