ParkerBarker by Lime Ricki Swimwear is an exclusive, limited edition line by New York designer Hayley Parker Barker. I met Hayley at New York Fashion Week 2011, and we’ve managed to somehow keep in touch through Facebook throughout the years!
She, along with her husband, created boys’ clothing line Culdesac (Check out the link! It gives me so much hope and inspiration for my future children!). This time, Hayley used her fabulous taste and FIT knowledge in design to collaborate with Lime Ricki for a few 60s-inspired vintage swimsuits!
Here I am wearing my favorite from the collection. This Birkin one-piece is super classy with the halter neck and trendy tropical print, but what I love most about it is knowing that 10% of proceeds from this suit go to bringing clean water to developing countries. What a wonderful way to make fashion go beyond its fundamental function.
I’m a little too petite for the fit to look exactly like how the model made it look like in the website, but I love it all the same!
