Designers like Peter Pilotto, Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone have tapped into the So Cal surf and skate scene for their spring collections and it looks like their influence has moved right on to summer time swim suits.
I, for one, couldn’t be more thrilled. Surf inspired swim wear generally provides more coverage as well as sporty details like piped edges, thick zippers and neon pops of color that feel just right this season. (Sun In streaked permed hair and frosty pink gloss optional.)
