There's nothing new under the sun. That old adage usually rings true when it comes to swimsuits, but designer Kelly Carrington of Éclairée proved there can be a new take on the classic bikini with her eye-popping line of optical illusion infused suits for the 2013 season.
Strategically placed net panels, which recalled those that appear on figure skating costumes, brought a sense of drama while color blocked bottoms gave the suits a a contrasting sporty look.
The overall effect? Certainly different, but will it be a hit with real women everywhere when Summer 2013 rolls around? That might be a hard sell as one can imagine issues surrounding skin-matching, and the general discomfort of wearing netting on the waves arising.
