Your new one-piece with the navel-grazing neckline and buckle detail may be a work of art, but it’s hardly a performance piece.
Mikoh Swimwear lets you frolic freely with design-forward suits made to stay in place whether you’re breaking waves or hearts. The debut collection is seamless, hardware free, and made entirely of nylon and spandex — fabrics that know how to cling.
Sisters, surfers, and designers Oleema and Kalani Miller’s mix-and-match tops, skimpy bottoms, and maillots (in charcoal, turquoise, coral, and stone) are meticulously constructed with unexpected flair.
The Xavier is a standard bikini in the front, but a surprise party when you turn around, with a loosely crocheted T-back that won’t leave funky tan lines. The Chase, a sneaky bandeau top with peek-a-boo windows and three ties in the back, pairs well with the Grayson bottom with extra-long side ties. If you’re not feeling particularly cheeky, the Owen’s fuller fit keeps the critics quiet.
Available at Diane’s Beachwear, 1125 Manhattan Avenue, at Manhattan Beach Boulevard, Manhattan Beach (310-546-9868); online at mikohswimwear.com, $90-$185.
