Color-blocked and high-cut, Ack’s made-in-Italy bikini is a retro-inspired delight. Embellished with silver-tone rings, the top is underwired for extra support. The bold combination of berry red and orange is just one colorway (this swimsuit also comes in single hues) and the polyamide, spandex and elastane blend is machine washable.
Brisbane-based SOOT (founded and designed by Edwina Sinclair) makes apparel that’s—at the same time—sophisticated and tongue-in-cheek. Their Bow Waist bikini is made up of a basic high-waisted pant and tank-style top, but its nuance and flair is in the oversized bows. The ribbon-like bows (which can be detached) offer a playful overly cutesy option, while the navy colorway delivers some subtlety to the two-piece.
