I have to say I love this swimsuit by Herve Leger . OK it’s not my favorite colour choice and I’d move the lines a little, but this is a very clever garment. I’m saddened to see so many negative comments about it on so many fashion blogs so I’m going to give it my personal seal of design approval. Herve Leger is without question one of the world’s leaders when it comes to alternative swimwear design and his bandage designs are copied by many wannabees (eg Mikoh ). The above suit shows that he’s taking his older concept (below) and making it more mainstream as many would find his older designs somewhat less than practical … but for the designer that wasn’t the point … for Leger, I’m guessing, it’s all about use of the bandage concept in new ways … the mark of an industry leader … and a signature style that’s clearly identifiable. I’m really keen to see how this develops.

They are too small, too big, too short, have a stain, a hole, or some other flaw, and yet you cannot bear to part with them. I took my old t-shirts and gave them new life.
