Shan Spring/Summer 2012 Swimwear Collection

There are numerous great ways of nailing down the vintage swimwear trend, but most labels go back to the ‘40s/’50s to express this vibe, bringing soft and cute pieces, which are both girly and unique. Few brands however try to capture the bombshell style that Brigitte Bardot gave to the ‘60s, but Shan has done! So if you are looking for retro vibes, trendy hues and prints, diversity and flattering swimsuit designs, the Shan spring/summer 2012 swimwear collection is for you! With ruffles and eclectic prints used for extra visual interest, these bathing suits prove to be undeniably alluring!


Blending a multitude of retro vibes with trendy touches, the famous Canadian brand’s newest swimwear lookbook plays to the bombshell: at times she is modern and cute, at times sexy and dazzling. It is vivid from the styling of a one-piece swimsuit with knee high boots, or a ruffle print bikini with thigh high boots. You are never going to hit the beach like that, but admit that a blue dotted halter neck bikini styled with a wide-brimmed hat and a pair of vintage sunnies just makes jaws drop. That’s vintage swimwear and that’s Shan!
Alongside eye-popping eclectic prints, the Shan spring/summer 2012 swimwear collection features lovely polka dots that once again state vintage. Combined with interesting textural vibes, these patterns not only radiate a strong retro vibe, but can also prove to be timeless. Whether you are into simplistic looks or love the visual effect created through complex styles, prints and patterns, the brand’s new swimwear collection has you covered this season.

To add extra interest and style to the swimsuits, Shan uses lovely accessories, ranging from jewelry pieces and colorful handbags to hats and sunglasses. Just add a beautiful makeup style and a relaxed hairstyle to it and your vintage look is sure to make heads turn!
