SolarBikini 540x405 Solar Bikini That Can Charge Your Gadgets

Check out this bikini that’s capable of charging your gadgets. Sounds a little gimmicky at first but if you think about it, the beach is the one place where this could come in really handy. And yes you can swim in it. You just have to make sure the port is dry before you plug any devices into it. Extra points for the designer Andrew Schneider being a resident of Brooklyn! Via Ecouterre.

We Are Handsome ‘The Memoirs’ Summer 2011

20 May 2011, 15.35 | Posted in Swimwear | No comments »

WeAreHandsome2 540x334 We Are Handsome The Memoirs Summer 2011

We Are Handsome’s latest collection, called “The Memoirs” for Summer 2011 is now on line. This bikini bottom featuring a wolf’s head reminded me of that big controversy a couple weeks back over the Hindu god featured on a Lisa Blue swimsuit, for which the designer had to apologize and ultimately pull the design from the line. Ha, imagine if all the wolves of the worlds saw this swimsuit and got super angry and started attacking humans in protest. Of course that would never happen because wolves aren’t crazy, thus making it a funny thing to imagine. Read more

The Lisa Blue Swimsuit Controversy

LisaBlueSwimsuit The Lisa Blue Swimsuit Controversy

Fashioning today recalled a dust-up over its posting of Lisa Blue’s Summer 2011 collection of swimsuits for Australian Fashion Week. The one piece shown above is the site’s most viewed photo. Editor Daniel Dykes explains:

“The swimsuit, as you can see, features a print representation of Lakshmi, a Hindu goddess. Visual representations of deities are nothing new, when applied to swimwear though, they can certainly provoke an emotional reaction.  And provoke this one-piece did. Since the image ran on Fashionising.com our editors have been filtering out hundreds of comments about the piece, none of them pleasant. Largely aimed at the label and its designer Lisa Burke, they’ve ranged from statements of concern to mild slurs, and at the other end of the spectrum have also included curses and all out death threats.”

Since the show, Lisa Blue has apologized and removed the offending print from the collection. Controversy aside, the designer clearly has a gift for choosing graphics and striking color and pattern combinations, not to mentioning styling a runway show to perfection. To see a few more suits from the collection, click through to the next page.

Enjoy a look  at  Pret-a-Surf’s  women’s surfing collection through this short film  directed by Duffy Higgins and John Jaxheimer. Aptly titled “The Next Time” (La Prochaine Fois), the film  adorably illustrates, crushes, seduction and the little games we love to play…

Joyrich has teamed up with Keith Haring on a capsule collection of bikinis, which will launch in late Spring. The collaboration will include two patterns: “Men And Dogs” and “Stars And Stripes,” which you see on the next page.

Both items will be available from our friends at Karmaloop, which by the way, we’re told, is launching a monthly site-wide scavenger hunt. It’s called “Peep Show” and when you find the hidden item, send an email detailing what it is and a winner will be randomly picked from entrants. This month’s item is now up–check here for more details.
