It’s official – this summer, it’s all about the swimsuit! According to new research by eBay, sales of the one-piece are up 110% compared to last month – an indication, they say, that the bikini is dead. Whilst we’re not entirely convinced the two-piece is over (after all, does a girl really have to choose?) it’s definitely true that retailers are noticing a rise in the sales of swimsuits.
We reckon it’s the influence – yet again – of Rihanna, who’s been spotted sporting various one-pieces recently. She’s experimented with everything from a classic white swimsuit by all-American designer Oscar de la Renta, We Are Handsome’s bold homage to Bob Marley, a floral design by Australian streetwear designers MinkPink and recently instagrammed her cut-out Charlie by Matthew Zinc – a designer who once worked with Tom Ford but launched his own 1970’s influenced swimwear collection in 2010.
So in homage to Rihanna’s swimsuit style, we’ve rounded up the 10 best one-pieces out there right now.
