This summer, we’ve had exciting fashion and sportswear collaborations coming out of our ears. From Martine Rose’s take on a Nike football uniform to Shrimps’ whimsical reimaging of performance wear with cycling brand Rapha, we’ve seen brands embrace the idea of teamwork to, well, make the dream work.

The move towards collabs has been carried over into swimwear, welcoming partnerships across luxury fashion, beauty and lifestyle to offer something new to enhance your pool-side chic. So whether you’re after cutouts, crinkles or cute squiggle prints, now you can up your cossie game with limited edition swimwear this summer.

Whistles X The Longing

For the latest swimwear collaboration to drop this summer, high street brand Whistles has teamed up with influencer Lindsey Holland’s lifestyle brand, The Longing, for a new 10-piece collection. Renowned for their Instagrammable 100% cotton towels, working on a swimwear capsule was a natural extension for The Longing. The collection includes one-pieces, bikinis and a cut-out swimming top all in an earthy pallet of chocolate, sky-blue and ecru, plus a cutesy squiggle print.

The collection is available from August 3rd at

Chloé X Eres

We’ve been pining after this collection since it came out back in May. Chloé’s signature “C” motifs are reimaged into cut-outs and Eres’ expertise in swimwear is given a high-fashion update. Although not the most budget-friendly, one can still dream of parading along the Côte d'Azur sporting this collection of swim separates.

Hunza G X Rose Inc

By now, we’re all familiar with British brand, Hunza G’s brilliant beach offering, and its crinkle textures and flattering cuts (for all sizes!) have reframed the swimwear sector. Their latest collab with Rosie Huntington Whiteley takes inspiration from the rosy tints and golden glows of her beauty brand Rose Inc. Because why wouldn't you want to match your (hopefully waterproof) make-up look with your swimming costume?
