The quick burner designer that only came on scene in 2010, Jonathan Simkhai developed an almost overnight cult following of celebrities and elites alike who are in love with his aesthetic. His looks are caught between the modernist architectural precision of sharp lines, and the romanticism of feminine fabrics like lace and silk – all cut to sensual silhouettes.Jonathan Simkhai swimwear

During a trip to Anguilla to celebrate his 30th birthday last year, a friend noted how amazing it would be if she had one of his dresses as a swimsuit. And so, the idea turned into a real swimwear collection a year later – with 50 pieces including bikinis, one pieces, maxi dresses, skirts, caftans, and wide-leg pants. The entire collection – swim pieces included – was specifically designed and engineered to go straight from the pool/beach to a restaurant, a party, or a date seamlessly.SS17 JONATHAN SIMKHAI swimsuit and skirt

They are designed thoughtfully to compliment the best parts of the feminine figure with the same romantic touches like flutter ruffles and lace work. And the cuts are so sleek. I am loving the black plunge neck suit with lace arms, the high neck  white one-piece with the notched sides of lace work, the red strappy bikini, as well as the high neck and high waist one-piece with stripes and cutouts at the abs.SS17 JONATHAN SIMKHAI swimsuit

Who am I kidding? I pretty much want to buy this entire collection.
