Rachel Comey introduces swimwear just in time for summer swimming Rachel Comey is hopping into the water with you this summer. Launching their first ever swimwear collection, the line includes retro-inspired one-pieces and bikinis--one of which features a landscape collage print by Rosemarie Aubersen. With classy cuts (i.e. not too much booty) and subdued tones, this is the kind of swimwear we can see ourselves wearing on that yacht for our summer vacay (right). It will probably be more like when we hop on the A train to head out to Rockaway or when we finally find that friend with a pool in the city. Though, really wherever there is water, these Rachel Comey suits will work. See more from the Rachel Comey swimwear collection, which is now available now on their website, below.
Andrew Schneider, has whipped up a sun worshiper's dream accessory--a bikini that keeps your gadget of choice charged. The Solar Bikini is "retrofitted with 1" x 4" photovoltaic film strips sewn together in series with conductive thread" that end in a USB connection. With some Sun-In in your hair and baby oil on your skin, you can jam to your iPod all day or grill up some burgers poolside with this George Foreman USB iGrill. Just don't think about hopping in the water with it still on.
"It Girl" collaborates with "It Brand." [Refinery 29] Remember when everyone and their cat was getting vajazzled? Well, if you're not so into the glittery, crystaled crotch look you can always "vatoo" your womanhood. "Vatooing" (or "twatooing") is exactly what the name alludes to: vagina tattooing, except the process is not permanent (the body paint stays on for seven days depending on "friction") and requires a total hair removal pre-vatoo.

Although bathing suits may be one of the last things on your mind right now--instead it's holidays, turkey and maybe even snow--seeing Jo De Mer's new suits may bring you back to that beach bum mood. These Brazillian suits not only look great but they come with a nice story. They were made by Amalia Spinardi an ex-fashion editor (who is also responsible for discovering models like Gisele Bundchen). Amalia got pregnant and took some time of work. The sabbatical allowed her the time to create these beauties. Available at colette, here are some of our favorites.
