Despite London being a huge failure in terms of weather this summer (you've got to feel bad for the Olympians competing in the cold British rain), I refuse to accept that summer is over until mid to late September rolls around. Since I do still have a glimmer of hope for sunshine at the end of this month (Spain), I figure this swimwear post is still perfectly seasonal.
1. Agent Provocateur, Kristie braided bikini (£245) 2. Lisa Marie Fernandez, Lauren zipped bandeau bikini (£58) 3. Mara Hoffman, carnival printed bandeau swimsuit (£225) 4. La Perla, sequined bandeau bikini (£142) 5. Yves Saint Laurent, bow-front bandeau bikini (£216)
Total coincidence that 4 out of 5 happen to be bandeau style. Personally, I'm especially fond of 2., because I think the military, olive shade of green goes brilliantly with my skin tone.
