Sometimes all it takes is spotting a standout swimsuit to make you plan a trip. Never had this experience? Well, that's all about to change once you lay your eyes on Maiyo's new swimwear collaboration. The luxe collection of pieces will not only leave you daydreaming of a holiday in the sun, but it'll likely inspire you to finally book that summer getaway, too.
Not familiar with Maiyo? It's time to get the London-based lifestyle brand on your radar. Founded by Roxanne Namaki-Lakani, Maiyo is known for its stylish use of crochet on vintage-inspired swim and resortwear. For its latest collection, the brand has teamed up with London-based stylists Bettina Looney and Anna Vitiello to create a range of pieces that are worthy of a spot in your summer wardrobe. And, given the fact that these two style mavens both have large Instagram followings, there's no doubt you'll be seeing this collection on your feed in no time.
Composed of swimsuits and a wide offering of resortwear, the collaboration's styles shine, literally — many of the silhouettes incorporate a shimmering lurex woven into the fabric. On top of that, the suits are easy to transition from a beach lounger to the beach bar, and even more so with the help of breezy bottoms, tops, and dresses — perhaps making this collab the key to perfecting your go-to summer uniform.
In terms of swim, you'll find a range of styles that have a glamorous, retro feel, like the Margaux bikini. The jersey-lurex two-piece features a tie-top and a high-waisted bottom with crochet scalloping along the edges. Select the suit in a glittering black or gold hue and drape a maxi, bell-sleeved kimono over your shoulders for a sophisticated summery look. Or, opt to pick up the set in a baby blue or pastel pink to pair with crochet flared trousers for a water-front lunch.
As for a one-piece? A standout in the offerings is the belted bather called Cindy. Coming with either a rhinestone or gold buckle belt, this silhouette's cinched waist and high-cut leg make it a knockout. However, if you're looking to bring more crochet into your swim lineup, the white and black belted Scarlett is an equally chic option, as is the green lurex-crochet Bianca with its plunging neckline.
With summer right around the corner, now is the time to start scooping up fresh swimwear — and this collection is guaranteed to make you shimmer in the sand. Continue on to start shopping styles and head over to the site to view the rest.
