Renowned for party pieces with a directional edge, Self-Portrait is as much famed for its statement eveningwear as its affordable designer price point. And with a capsule swimwear collection launching today, the design team are proving they’re more than a one trick pony. Featuring 17 pieces, from block colour bikinis to dramatic, geometric print kaftans, these aren’t practical designs for hardcore sunbathers – rather they’re the killer styles to see and be seen in, from beach clubs to elegant resorts come summer.
In typical Self-Portrait fashion, bold shades feature heavily – a warm mix of cinnamon and burnt orange has Mediterranean summer written all over it – whilst a ditsy cherry print on a white background has softer, more girly appeal. Cover-ups include a dramatic white plumetis dress and a matchy-matchy mini style to go with the floral style swimwear, meaning you can pretty much kit yourself out for the whole season in these pieces. Our advice when it comes to summer pieces is to buy when you see them, so don’t wait until you've booked a holiday – we have a suspicion these won’t be around for long.
