Floozie by Frost French – Retro Swimwear

I was  in Birmingham, on my way to an event, and had a little time to kill.  I decided to take a little wonder around the huge Bullring branch of Debenhams. With a holiday fast approaching, I headed straight for the holiday/swimwear collection, and promptly fell completely in love with the range from Sadie Frost and Jemima French, the fantastically named ‘Floozie’. This is a retro inspired collection that could’ve come straight from a range of saucy postcards, totally apt in it’s name.

So back to the Floozie collection, and just why I love it so much. This is a collection that is just so kitsch and pretty. With its influences steming firmly from the 1950s, we get a collection that is full of pretty bikini separates, halter neck and skirted swimsuits and bikini bottoms that can only be described (joyfully) as big pants.

The prints are bright and fun, gorgeous yellow sunflowers and polka dots, and my personal favourite print – pink seahorses. There are also some stunning accessories too, with pack flat beach bags and sunflower flip flops, thin, floaty kaftans and 70s style floppy hats. I can honestly say that there isn’t a piece in this collection that I don’t love with a passion.

Phase Eight Embrace Retro Winter Sun

I must admit I got a little bit excited when I first laid eyes on the new swimwear collection from Phase Eight. The brand is always a favourite of mine for the sheer glamour and elegance of the collections, there is something a little bit Hollywood about the full skirts and sequins, without even turning our head towards the spectacular ‘Collection 8’ range. And now we have a holiday range, complete with swimwear straight from the wardrobe of Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, with a little 70s inspiration thrown in for good measure.

The swimwear collection deserves the word ‘amazing’ attached to it. Forget barely there, string bikini’s, the pieces in this collection were made to be christened poolside glamour. I’m obsessed with the Ali high waisted bikini, complete with bottoms that will definitely give you a Marilyn moment at the beach. The Daisy bikini top is just gorgeous, a halter style that actually looks like it could handle a substantial pair of boobs without any spillage. The Elanor and Daisy swimsuits have it all, beautiful prints, vibrant primary colours, and beautiful retro shapes that make them first choice when choosing a swimsuit.

Take a look at the collection – in patriotic red, white and blue, this is Hollywood glamour with a great British edge.
