When the mercury rises (or you book flights to a far-flung paradise), choosing the perfect swimsuit is a rite of passage. From desert-island-worthy creations to slick styles that will segue neatly from pool to bar (just add wide-leg pants and an oversized shirt), this season’s iterations don’t disappoint.

For SS23, designers embraced the joy of block color, vintage references and high-impact details, creating silhouettes for every style. The designs of the season come via Hunza G’s much-anticipated collaboration with Rose IncRosie Huntington-Whiteley’s popular beauty brand. Revived after its ’80s heyday to become a cult favorite, the former specializes in flattering, high-impact creations that are instantly recognizable by their figure-sculpting seersucker fabric, and this capsule arrives in a series of pink hues that align with makeup colors from Rose Inc’s beauty line.

Elsewhere, French label Eres consistently delivers iconic, impeccably crafted cuts – its pared-back asymmetrical blue design is a classic example. Or, to make a bold statement, La DoubleJ makes a convincing case for vivid stripes. For something more whimsical, try Australian brand Peony’s designs, which instantly evoke sun-drenched days – this pretty broderie-anglaise swimsuit is exclusive to NET-A-PORTER.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to channel Italian summer glamour, Missoni amps up the one-shoulder silhouette with signature zigzag crochet, shot through with metallic threads that sparkle in the sunshine. For statement style, cutouts are a directional option – Christopher Esber’s green swimsuit features an artful construction and attention to detail, while Mara Hoffman’s cutout halterneck design is crafted with 50% recycled fibers and features in our NET SUSTAIN initiative of more sustainable pieces. Meanwhile, New York-based label Lisa Marie Fernandez serves up a sporty, cool ’70s vibe with a stretch terry swimsuit that will double beautifully as a bodysuit, to easily take you from beach to lunch or pool to cocktails.
