Missoni, Eres and Zimmerman are the rockstars of quality swimwear — and they tend to come with MSG-sized price tags. Yeah, we feel your pain, and it's only the beginning of getaway season. Similarly disappointed by the sub-par swim options at a reasonable price, fashion publicist — and part-time street-style starlet Gabby Sabharwal — dreamed up Giejo, a pint-sized collection that's already heavy in print-cred.
The idea was to offer six mix-and-match separates inspired by her favorite vintage fabrics and silhouettes. After scouring the garment district for swatches and samples, Sabharwal chose both the classic and unexpected. The nautically-oriented will love the bandeau top in cream and navy, and underwire number in the sweetest periwinkle floral is straight-up gorgeous. For those who dare to go bold, the zoomed-in ikat triangle in noir and the retro bottoms are must-haves. And if you're somewhere in the middle like us, there are plenty of patchworked styles to indulge your indecision!
