Early Look at Resort 2012 Swimwear

In usual fashion, Chanel kicked off the Resort 2012 season last month in Antibes, setting a ladylike tone for swimwear with peplummed tankinis and black-and-white maillots inspired by Coco’s iconic jacket. At Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier showed off his swimwear finesse in lingerie-inspired one-pieces and demi tops, all fashioned out of a unique melange-printed tricot. Oscar de la Renta and Elie Tahari also favored retro-inspired beachwear, both pairing striped high-waisted bottoms with prim tops.
