Get Your Swim On



These swimsuits by Norma Kamali dare you to take them for a dip. These ultra feminine, sexy pieces will turn the heads of a few gorgeous sun-kissed men. So go ahead and lounge pool side while you sip a mojito and flip through the most recent issue of Vogue. All the while playing the part of a sophisticated bathing beauty.

I love them all, but especially the first one. They all have such a great vintage, retro vibe.

Style Redux 2- the first suit was the same one Miranda wore to Carrie's "honeymoon" in the SATC film. Only it was red.

Great echoes of a more elegant era here. No athletes, thank god.

Kamali does the BEST bathing suits! I'd wear the first one if I was skinny minny again. Had a Kamali bathing suit in early 80's. Wore it till it fell apart.
Happy weekend,
Catherine

These are so chic and flattering! I will take 1, 2 and 4 :)

I have a suit just like the second one. I bought it because it looked very simple and conservative (it was for a family beach vacation) but, to my surprise, this simple suit got me more attention than any bikini I ever wore!

Fantastic, I just love these vintage styles.....enjoy the weekend, xv.

Style Redux said...

Rose C'est La Vie- My thoughts exactly.

Style Redux said...

A Thousand Clapping Hands- These are certainly the prettiest swimsuits I've ever seen. I'm sure you looked like a knockout in yours! Have a good weekend.

Style Redux said...

Sarah Klassen- They are indeed flattering. Kamali definitely knows a woman's body. I can't decide which one I love most. I'll take 'em all!

Style Redux said...

Frances- I so wish more women would wear stylish suits like these! A woman in a vintage suit would most certainly be a pleasant surprise.

Style Redux said...

vicki archer- These suits make me think of Marilyn Monroe and old movies like "From Here to Eternity." Have a good weekend!

I just love Norma Kamali - I'm glad she's on top of her game now and strong in the market. We needed her!

Abby said...

I would like one of each of these, please. Umm...and some of those gorgeous sun-kissed men you mentioned. Where would I find myself one of those!?

Style Redux said...

Sanity Fair- Norma is such an innovative designer. I admire her vision so much.

Style Redux said...

Abby- Haha, it's a nice summer fantasy huh? If I knew the answer to that critical question, I'd let you in on it.
