Swimsuit season is nearly upon us and even though it may still be a little too cool to take a dip in the ocean, we can certainly begin to get ourselves physically and mentally ready for the moment the world will be right and the summer heat will be scorching at our skin, demanding liquid relief. That is when the vacations will begin, the swimsuits will be donned and models like Emma Stern Nielson will be thanked profusely for bringing such lovely body ornamentation to the periphery of our knowledge about the first swimwear collection by Lovers + Friends. The debut swimwear line by the brand offers a whole array of sexy, positively alluring and incredibly crafted items off the rack that have us pumping iron and getting down for those crunches done daily. The Lovers + Friends swimwear 2015 lookbook was photographed in Hawaii by Chris Shintani, showing off images of Danish model Emma Stern Nielson in gorgeous, bold cut and colorfully printed bikinis. She has appeared in a few campaigns of late, including for the Triumph fall 2014 collection.
The Lovers + Friends brand itself is a big fan of vibrant colors and bold patterns, luxe fabrics and the aura of fun in the sun and surf, of enjoying your days no matter the weather out there, of parties and dancing and exploring new worlds. This latest summer 2015 swiwmear line is now available at REVOLVE Clothing, in a price range between $80 and $150. It is rather affordable given the quality of the garments themselves.
Sexy swimwear makes us happy beyond belief. There is just much self-confidence that hinges on the way your body looks in a piece of cloth that is meant for swimming and tanning purposes. We may not necessarily recommend the laced up version of this ensemble due to those awkward tan lines, but we love the way it brings the attention to the chest and midriff, the mesh look giving it a medieval feel while the triangle bra and bikini bottoms inspire such love for the summer months.
There are pieces that rather remind us of mermaids as well, though when have we seen a mermaid in crochet swimwear, we do not know. Perhaps it is the fishnet halter top or even the coloring that is so very reminiscent of The Little Mermaid, but we know that no matter what it is, we would be feeling like rather expensive mermaids in these two piece swimsuits by Lovers + Friends.
Plunging necklines, barely there covering and a whole lot of gorgeous floral prints make the one piece suits so very delectable to see, our closets coveting the look and our bodies itching to don on the sexiest of single piece suits. With an open back, a halter top and a high cut at the top of the thighs, we actually have to worry about our chest spilling out of such pieces. They are not meant for tanning per se, but when it comes to taking a dip in a hidden waterfall’s solitary pool, we cannot imagine a more fitting piece of garment to where.
