You know how women love shoes? Well I’ve always been obsessed with swimwear…in fact, back in my teens I used to model vintage clothing for my moms ebay store and I would get paid, you guessed it, in swimwear. Well not much has changed…
I was always after the latest Roxy or Billabong styles, but these days (for me) it’s all about reppin’ the local brands. There are some amazing Canadian designers that produce the coolest swimwear, photographed in this post is Gypsy Soul Designs. I love the retro style cut and the fact that the fabric is slightly fuzzy (it sounds odd but it’s actually kind of amazing)!
These photos were taken at the Parker Palm Springs and are definitely some of my most favourite from the past two years of working with Justine…I mean, come on, just look at those adorable umbrellas! I die.
If you’re after some new and unique swimwear this Summer I definitely recommend checking out my favourites; Gypsy Soul Designs, Honubelle, Fortnight, and Minnow Bathers. Stay tuned for upcoming posts featuring these amazing Canadian companies!
Have any favourites yourself? I’d love to know where you shop for Summer swimwear!
