Booked your ticket to Rio for Carnival? Neither have we.
For those not likely to be setting foot in Brazil this side of 2014, let Olga Olsson swimwear get you one step closer. Founded by Ruth Ferguson — who refined her talents working with Alexander McQueen and Matthew Williamson — the label dishes high-octane glamour worthy of hotspots from Ibiza to Ipanema.
Inspired by the laid-back style of 1970s beach beauties, the collection includes skinny bandeau tops and abbreviated halters paired with side-tie bikini bottoms and bum-boosting hipsters in retro digital prints (think tropical sunsets and Pollock-esque patterns).
What’s more, the label benefits seamstresses in Rio’s favelas by paying a living wage and maintaining fair trade standards. Sexy and supportive — everything you want from a swimsuit.
Available online at olgaolsson.com, £125-£185.
