Ayla Swim

Come on sunshine! Swimwear for the summer

Rain in London has us counting down the days to our summer holidays. Shop this season’s swimwear with our tip-top guide:

The second collection from British brand, Ayla Swim is even lovelier than the first. There’s smocking, frilly details, and pretty prints in sustainable fabrics. Smocked bottoms, £80 and Top, £80 at Ayla Swim:

A new line for Liberty this year; swimsuits and bikinis in vintage-inspired shapes. We love this Arboreal print button-up one-piece. Look out for the matching high-waisted silk shorts to pull on for lunch. £295 at Liberty:

Classic and grown-up, Caroline af Rosenborg’s collection is small but perfectly formed. There’s just one cross-back swimsuit that comes in signature sage print, ivory or black. Plus a wider range of bikinis where the styles can be mixed and matched according to your shape – pair up a string triangle top and a high-waisted bottom, or a bandeau with side-tie briefs for example. High-waisted briefs, £135 and supportive cross-back top in Giraffe, £205 at Caroline af Rosenborg:

We’re mad on the 70’s look this summer, and no-one does it better than Faithfull The Brand. You’ll need to be added to the waiting list to get your hands on this Marigold bikini, but there’s a whole lot more besides including green gingham and brown and white polka dots, all designed and made in Bali. Bikini $179 (free international shipping over $150) at Faithfull The Brand:

On the high street, And Other Stories comes out top this season. Find lovely gingham bikinis, sporty swimsuits and great sunhats too. We have our eye on this ribbed button-up yellow one-piece, £49 at And Other Stories:

Colombian brand, Agua Bendita ticks all this summer’s trends with this heavenly high-waisted sea shell bikini. Bottoms, £102 and top £132 at Moda Operandi:

Former Vogue Paris stylist, Talia Collins has turned her hand to swimwear, launching her eponymous label this summer. Made from sustainable regenerated ECONYL® the swimsuits are produced from discarded fishing nets and plastic litter. The shapes are minimal and classic – and they can be personalised with your initials. The Classic in red, £158 + £16 for personalisation at Talia Collins

Ganni have upped their swimwear offering this year. We love this seersucker ruched swimsuit with detachable straps, in a flattering cut £180 at Ganni

And finally, Peony – another environmentally-minded brand, this time from Australia have a small collection available at net-a-porter, like this floral underwired bikini top £110 and bottoms £110 at net-a-porter:
