No season invites a more playful approach to dressing than summer, and few milieus more so than poolside. Case in point: SS22’s current crop of two-piece swimwear, in which bold hues and eye-catching motifs abound.

While Brazilian-based brand PatBo has never shied away from riotous prints and tactile textures, its latest batch of swimwear is perhaps its most boundary-pushing yet – take its color-saturated, floral-print bikini, which has convinced us to try a vibrant, coordinated look. Elsewhere, heritage fashion house Missoni’s bold, buzzy pattern beautifully elevates a triangular bikini that’s guaranteed to be the highlight of any summer suitcase.

Still, while SS22 serves up pattern aplenty, a handful of brands are also championing the power of a single striking color this season, with clean-lined silhouettes in solid hues that pack a sartorial punch. No brand better encapsulates this thinking than Hunza G. Widely adored for its unfussy, ultra-flattering shapes in statement hues, the cult London label has crafted a chic twist-front two-piece from its trademark seersucker in a sunshine-ready pastel yellow. Meanwhile, Matthieu Blazy’s latest collection for Bottega Veneta showcases the same commitment to green that has dominated seasons past at the brand and swiftly become a signature. The designer’s textured one-shoulder set in a fresh shade of lime will add instant fashion-insider credentials to your beachside style.
