There is perhaps no greater summer fashion foul than trying to pass a bathing suit off as a real item of clothing. Now, don’t get us wrong, we certainly commend those ladies who rock a bikini top in public for their, um, confidence, but it’s not necessarily something we’re going to try out anytime soon. However, we might be bending our rule juuuuust a wee bit for We Are Handsome’s new Matriarch Collection.
We Are Handsome has been a style crush of ours for quite some time now, but, after viewing these almost impossibly cool swimsuits, we’re ready to take the next step by getting into a committed relationship with the Aussie designer.
Featuring bold pop-art images of everything from champagne bubbles to the kind of sunsets we only thought existed in our most lavish vacation dreams, the limited-edition collection hit stores this month. While we certainly plan on wearing these pieces poolside, our favorite thing about them is how cool many of these pieces would look away from the water. Style these babies with cut-offs, high-waisted jeans, or a denim vest — et voilà! — suddenly you have a look more than worthy of a night out. We’ve got our hands on the lookbook for the Matriarch Collection and are officially dedicating the next hour or so to daydreaming about all the tropical vacations we’d love to have in these pieces.
