The latest beneficiary of the retro trend that is slowly but surely seeping into every sphere of the sartorial world, timeless swimwear is clearly having a moment. Cue Prada’s spring collection, which was firmly situated in the iconic 1950s, boasting ladylike silhouettes and pastel colors that conjured muse-like images of Marilyn in her accordion-pleated dress from The Seventh Year Itch. In turn today, we’re putting the spotlight on Miuccia’s modestly-sexy bodysuits that simply beg for Old Hollywood pinup poses around the pool.
Retrograde swimwear is the perfect way to revamp your typical—and perhaps, overdone—summer bikinis or one-pieces, and Prada’s charming embroidered and embellished suits have been on our minds since they first swam down the runway. Want to dive into the classic style? Swap out last season’s suit and embrace the vintage vibe by pairing Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Ruffled Maillot with heeled sandals, round sunglasses and hair polish for a sleek and timeless look, fit for the pool, beach or any stylish summer soirée!
Availability: Prada Bodysuits (price upon request, available at select Prada Boutiques). For additional information, visit Prada.com.
