Currently on at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey is the: 'RIVIERA STYLE: Resort & Swimwear Since 1900' exhibition. Celebrating over 100 years of fun swim and leisure wear, the exhibition looks at fashion stretching from the Great British Seaside to the Côte d’Azur and even California. Particularly examining the use of different fabrics and technical developments in the manufacturing of swimwear, this exhibition is a must see. It runs until September 13th, open daily between 11am and 6pm.
Now with all that talk of swim and sun, it has got me thinking of golden sands and summer vacations, so I have put together a selection of some of the best stylish swimwear available this season. I have chosen some of the hottest names in swimwear, so wearing one of these brands will give your holiday wardrobe serious kudos. I have also purposely selected varied styles of swimwear, so whichever is your preferred style there is something for you here. Whether you like prints, cut-outs or halter necks don't be afraid to mix up your beach style, after all holidays are all about having fun!
