Finding swimwear that is not only figure-flattering but also stunningly beautiful (yes I know, I don’t ask for much!) is always a challenge; well I’ve done the hard work for you, read on for my top tip for beautiful swimwear for brides and beach escapes.
Sometimes during my luxury travels, I stumble across a clothing brand that really stands out, who offers something unique and that I’m confident will be a feature in my suitcase for many trips to come. This is certainly the case with Afina London whose range of swimwear is simply beautiful; with one pieces, bikinis and monokinis all featuring so you can be certain there’s something for everyone.
The main line features splashes of vibrant colours and bold prints in a range inspired by the tropics of the Sinharaja jungle in Sri Lanka. This is high-end innovative swimwear, so think unusual silhouettes and memorable shapes. Some of my real favourites are a couple of the stunning one pieces; the romantic deep red Carmen, gorgeously cut with ruffles at the shoulders and hips, and the sea-blue Adele with its dramatic waistline and a band around the waist featuring the brand’s iconic and rather bold feather print. Totally beautiful and a definite way to make a statement on the beach.
If your beach escape is of the honeymoon variety, then Afina London have a little treat for you. Continue that wonderful feeling of being a bride with a range designed just for newlyweds featuring feminine white ruffles, the very finest Swarovski crystals and 24 carat gold plated accessories. The result is totally sumptuous and endlessly chic, and you’ll bound to turn more than just your new husband’s head wearing these pieces!
Afina London was founded after the owner, Afina, became frustrated with her own fruitless search for the perfect swimwear and found the far simpler option in the end was to design her own! The garments are all designed and meticulously crafted in England using the very finest double lined Italian fabric: Jersey Lomellina. The hardware is crafted in Paris and plated with 24k Gold to cater to even the most sensitive of skin. The cut of the swimwear is exceptional, ensuring the perfect, figure-flattering fit to highlight all the bits you want highlighted and neatly tuck any that you don’t! The only problem with swimwear this beautiful is not being able to wear it when I return home to chilly Britain!
