This is the second out of the two collaborations I did with the brand, i love koi. Personally my more preferred one since it’s a more timeless design that’s super flattering for all shapes and sizes without compromising your innocence (lol)
I have the weirdest swimwear insecurity – I can never bring myself to wear bikinis. I can only really wear high-waist two-piece ones and one-pieces, mostly because I can’t bear the fact that it’s possible to expose the same amount of skin if I’m wearing lingerie or underwear. I’m also the type who doesn’t want to get bothered being all conscious and stuff while swimming! It’s amazing how a lot of my friends have already mastered the art of not flashing their body parts randomly while at the beach.
And so this swimsuit design came to life. If I had to make the most ideal swimsuit for myself, this would be it! It’s my modern twist to vintage swimsuits which are so hard to find commercially nowadays. It covers enough, but also reveals enough. It’s totally swimmable, if you’re like me who can get a bit conscious with revealing too much skin. You can get these at the i love koi main page or Facebook page once they’re posted online. It comes in a wide variety of color combinations and fabric patterns, so be sure to tune in the website every now and then. I own two variations myself – a gold + black one that I also used as a top during the fashion show last 19th of April, and another red strips + blue one that that’s super cutesy-nautical. Here’s a photo of actress Maja Salvador wearing it as a top as well.
