Oh So Hot and Handsome

The Africa bikini
It may be mid-winter and freezing cold here in New Zealand but my heart and mind are in summer mode already with all the exciting Spring/Summer stock arriving at the moment.  Yes, I am guilty of turning up the heater at home full blast so I can parade around in my favourite new summer ensembles, without succumbing to frostbite that is.

However swimwear is not usually one of my favourite things to parade around in, as to be honest the majority of it is much of a much-ness.  The same old florals, stripes, and the odd motif seem to rule in swimwear these days, which is why Australian company We Are Handsome is such a breath of fresh air with their bold graphic designs, that aren't your stereotypical girly swimwear.  Made and designed entirely in Australia, We Are Handsome is the brainchild of Sydney graphic designer Jeremy Somers and swimwear designer Indhra Chagoury, who wanted to create 'spellbinding works of art' with their swimsuits.  From these pictures I think you will agree they have definitely succeeded in that aim.

Their designs feature everything from galloping stallions and stunning skyline scenery to ravenous jungle creatures and are really visually dynamic creations.  The swimsuits are crafted from the finest Italian Lycra and are available in simple but classic styles such as the one piece, bodysuit, bikini and bandeau.  I love that the one piece has come back into popularity in the past few years, as it really is a lot more flattering on some shapes than a bikini, and these one pieces are certainly spectacular.  We Are Handsome have also done some guys trunks as well this season, which are sure to please the males out there that like their swimwear with a graphic edge.  These hot swimsuits are a limited edition must-have, perfect for those who want to make a statement on the beach or by the pool this summer.
