The weather has started to get warmer, sun is out more often and that signals summer’s arrival. The season of naturally showing skin due to the heat, picking panama or bucket hats and exposing pedicured toes in our sandals is just around the corner.
A voice inside me screamed: you need to cover swimwear! As a swimsuit enthusiast myself, exploring brands and pieces that give the vibe of chilling with a soft summer breeze holding a cocktail is a yearly ritual. See below some AiSPi handpicked European brands with impressive stories and designs for all styles.
Calarena is all about dressing the female summer lover day to night. Designed in Corsica, the brand has Mediterranean allure encrypted in its DNA. The use of colour and cuts that flatter the female form are signature traits of the designs. Apart from the swimwear collection, which features both bikinis and one-pieces, Calarena offers vacation clothing to cover a full wardrobe for your next seaside holiday. May we recommend St. Tropez?
Halla x Halla
While developing a swimwear brand in Greece or Capri would hardly be considered surprising, Halla Halla has an interesting derivation point: Finland. Yes, the Nordic country that sees quite a lot of cold.
The brand has an equally noteworthy inspiration. Keen on having a positive environmental impact, all designs are made from regenerated nylon making Halla Halla the first sustainable swimwear brand in Finland.
Their designs are characterised by a motto: ”life is too short for boring swimwear”. We have to agree on that. Their swimwear is perfect to lounge around in on the beaches of Lake Como with your girlfriends!
Established in 2011 in Portugal and owned by two women, Cantê incorporates a laid-back state of living to its swimwear designs.
Its country of origin has not only served as a source of inspiration for summer wearing, but is also the place where everything happens from manufacture to sourcing materials.
A 100% Portuguese brand, Cantê represents an adventurous spirit and a sun-seeking lifestyle.
