In this time of quarantine, beating the heat at home by wearing swimwear is no longer an uncommon practice, at least if influencer feeds are anything to go by. But with some of our local beach destinations opening up to tourists, there may be opportunity to take snaps in your swimmie by an actual body of water.
That said, while on the hunt for some inspo, our thumbs stopped twice when we saw 2 of our favorite fashion lovers in the same luxury maillot from Louis Vuitton. First seen was Sarah Lahbati, who spent some of her time at The Farm at San Benito enjoying the pools in the property. In what looked like an evening swim, she gave us a glimpse of the crossed straps and cutouts at the back of the suit. She also shared a photo of the unworn suit laid on her bed, where you could easily admire its shape.
Now in recent days, in a bit of a swimsuit OOTD spree, we saw Rei Germar don the very same one-piece. Worn quite differently, as she seemed to be taking a stroll in what we surmise is her backyard, she paired it with a chalk white crossbody bag from local brand Blanc Nue and extra chunky white Crocs.
Seeing how easily this monogrammed swimsuit can be styled in many ways—sexy as Sarah does it, or the unfussed activity-driven way of Rei—is testament to how a classic, well-designed piece can serve you. We got in touch with Louis Vuitton Philippines to get the details.
Here’s what you need to know: The one-piece suit is part of the LV Escale collection. The summer collection’s indigo colorway takes inspiration from the Japanese dyeing technique shibori. There are other swimsuit styles on offer including a set of bikini tops and bottoms that you can buy individually to suit your preferences. Take a closer look at the styles and their prices below.
