Within the parameters that define swimwear there is so much scope in reinventing and reinterpreting this market segment. On the theme of more general research for swimwear design, I believe it is important to be artistically inspired while understanding this fast-growing particular market, and for that, retailers, e-tailors, magazines and blogs are important touch points. When designers ask me about my advice and thoughts on design, quite often I encourage them to create based on what motives them. If a brand has the boldness to work with what they love and are not afraid to showcase who they are and what they are about, they are more than likely to contribute considerably to the discipline of the market segmentation.

Leaving extremely little to the imagination, these startling pieces of swimwear are effectively made up of a strip of tape covering the nipple and crotch area.
