Summer's on way as swimwear looms large on the weather front
The sight of March hailstones was the perfect incentive to drive us into the embrace of tropical swimwear as Brown Thomas yesterday launched their 'Fit to Look Fabulous' lingerie and swimwear fitting stylist service.
Those uneasy, first-day-on-the-beach moments are answered by the arrival of the 'Rio' sheer cover up jumpsuit, €205 from Asceno by Beautiful Bottoms worn by Sarah with a 'Bosanova' bikini (€115) from Phax, one of the exclusive labels in store.
There's always one swimwear piece to make even the most jaded beach babe spring into retail action and at yesterday's breakfast time show, JETs premium 'White Label' range produced the most compelling, grab-it-quick look of the day.
The 'Statuesque' strapless monochrome one piece with neoprene panel and stepped neckline €285, is strikingly gorgeous and could double up for night time wear on holidays - perhaps a black chiffon, full length skirt a la Khloe Kardashian or a flirty, circular, white silk skirt.
Other exclusive swimwear labels in the Lingerie Rooms this season include Heidi Klein, Mouille, Lazul, Trina Turk and also Moschino, whose bikinis feature gold branded hardware on straps. There are also exclusive ranges from Seafolly and Michael Michael Kors
