INDEX STYLE: Slip, slop, slap on a pair of bathers

Produced by Art Dept

We round up some frightfully cool togs for a swimwear special: sidewalk edition.

Plaza Crisp One-Piece by Maryam Nassir Zadeh
Wear a blue gingham one-piece and own that water like a boss. Designed by Maryam Nassir Zadeh, these check swimmers is like wearing the blue iteration of a quintessential picnic blanket on your body but way better.


Venice Maillot by Marysia
If your current swimwear situation is making you feel insufficiently casual, the Venice maillot may pique your interest. It’s a one-shouldered one-piece featuring a twist-front and cut-out bits.


Leopard Triangle Bikini by GANNI
Cut from recycled polyamide, this set of togs are sustainable living in a neat, leopard-print package. The recycled polyester reduces dependence on petroleum as a raw material and can divert plastic from ending in landfills.


Lapiz Bikini Top & Bottoms by Maryam Nassir Zadeh
Shine bright like a lapis lazuli semi-precious stone in this two-piece by fashion’s favourite Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Made in Turkey, the swimwear set is a masterclass in modern, colour-blocking poolside accessorising.


Palm Springs Tie Maillot by Marysia
Forget reading A Beginner’s Guide To Growing Bougainvilleas and instead chuck a pair of Bougainvillea-print bathers on. Much easier to master.


Salome Bikini Top & Sonny Bottoms by Isabel Marant
Isabel Marant, the mutli-award-winning French designer, turns her hand to swimwear and nails the minimalist aesthetic with sleek ease.
