it’s that time of year in South Africa where some women (aka: me) are starting to sweat about the impending summer. they are scrolling through Kayla Istine’s feed, and thinking about maybe doing a juice diet, and keeping one eyeball on the swimwear trends. it’s companies like Pale Swimwear who give me hope, making beautiful pieces that would suit a range of body types. whether you’re into high-waisted bikinis or slick one-pieces, they’ve got you covered.
Hackwith Design House has just released their all-new swimwear collection. there are currently several different styles of bikini tops and bottoms, as well as two full piece suits, in either black or white that you can mix and match to your liking. but probably my favourite part is that you can see the pieces worn by two different models so that you can get a better idea of how the suit might fit your body type.

you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here
