We’re feeling oddly aquatic lately, most likely because we’ve just received a true spring/summer delivery of…swimsuits. Those skimpiest members of the ready-to-wear category in all of their strappy, bandaged glory.

Being début, these would not be just swimsuits though. These are from one Lisa Marie Fernandez, a designer who surely believes that swimwear is as integral to a woman’s wardrobe as a little black dress. The aesthetic and execution is that meticulous. In fact, Fernandez’s pieces often walk off the beach and in for a drink.

The collection we’ve assumed is a tight edit of the classics, ranging from the playful, to stealth Bond girl-like. A scuba-inspired racerback in color-block black and yellow; a seamed spaghetti strap number in palm frond green; a bi-color triangle top in cool Hockney blue and khaki, and our favorites: the simplest zip front bandeau bikini and bodysuit, both in all black.

You’ll feel like a regular super hero regardless of which style. Don one, and it molds to you, creating an insta-perfect second skin.
