Swimwear: Ones to Watch

This summer, a talented group of first or second-timers a Mode City Paris, SwimShow and Salon Allure in Miami and Curve New York made for one of the strongest trade show seasons in years. Some of the newcomers have already carved out a niche in their corner of the world and are looking to make waves internationally, some are seasoned designers who are branching out with their own lines, and some are fresh out of school but nonetheless possess a maturity and strength of vision beyond their years.

We decided to profile these noteworthy labels in a Ones to Watch report for the S/S 2012 season. Starting from the top left corner in the above collage, here are our picks:

Acacia | Callula Lillibelle | Anna & Boy | Nina Vidovic Piece Unique | Shivan & Narresh | Hanne Bloch | Fräulein Annie | Thapelo | Noelle
