Handsome horsey

June 10th, 2010

I can’t remember the last time I wore any kind of swimwear, but these marvelous handmade swimsuits by We Are Handsome are making me reconsider my lack of lycra. My favourite is the horse one above, which is 50% Lloyds TSB and 50% Chloe ss ’01 (Stella’s most fun collection, surely) which is kind of 100% brilliant. Not sure if I would let my £152 swimsuit touch chlorine or sea water, but as outerwear it could be pretty fierce. With bottoms though, this isn’t lookbook.

(from style.com) see also the horsey topshop jumper that it heavily inspired several years later.

    ohhh! I had seen an image with the girl wearing the lion/tiger one kicking around the internet for EVER and never could find out where it was from, amazing!

    I’m jumping on the bandwagon and expressing my love for the lion. So, so cool!


  6. Anja says:

    Those swimsuits are awesome! I love the tiger one! xxx


  7. Lynn says:

    I would look totally unattractive in any of these, alas. It’s the utterly timeless swimsuits at, for instance, Popina in Portland, Oregon that I find irresistible…


  8. anne says:

    that swimwear is so 80s fierce – love it!


  9. Kim says:

    Bathing suits terrify me! I’ve always been way too self-conscious to wear one in public, so it’s doubly heartbreaking to look at such lovely, expensive swimwear.

    Also, the fuckyoulookbook tumblr was a TREAT. Thanks for that!


  10. Lolo says:

    These are all beautiful! i need one in my life.


  11. K. says:

    Wow, I agree about these never coming in contact with any water. They are all so gorgeous, and now I’m really wanting one. I especially enjoy the horse one as well as the night scene with palm trees/airplane.


  12. Brigadeiro says:

    The Chloe horse collection is one of my favourite collections ever!

    around spring break, i started lusting after these too: http://pandorascloset.blogspot.com/2010/03/elderly-sales-clerk-wont-eye-us-with.html

    luckily, it didn’t pan out, and my bank account thanks me for being sensible. i still get a bit of a pang when i see them, though.. maybe next summer!


  14. Maria says:

    I love the lion tank top! Or is that a swimsuit?


  15. Brigitte says:

    i really hope these things grow fast in the market! i want jack sparrow all over my body! :D


  16. […] What happens when you mix retro imagery, Lycra and an attractive state of mind? These sexy suits from We Are Handsome. What’s more, the swimwear is handmade in Australia, so rest assured you’ll be the most beautiful and unique snowflake on the block. I prefer the Arabia because nothing says bold like a black beauty galloping across your body. The fun doesn’t have to stop at water’s edge either since they would also look chic with your favorite denim ensemble. Good onya, mates! [via kris atomic] […]
