In Our Windows: Pret-a-Swim

Ready-to-wear collections inspired some of this season's standout swimsuit silhouettes. Styles were cropped, wrapped or ruffled, like the white L*Space bikini seen in our windows. Designer Monica Wise discusses the trend.

ALL RUFFLED UP
"Women love a little bit of femininity, and the ruffle trend looks great on every body type. It's a detail that accentuates all the right places."

DOUBLE DUTY
"The lines have been blurred between ready-to-wear and resort. The thrill of a new swimsuit is one of the best parts of summer, but unless you're lucky enough to live near the beach, you don't get to wear a it enough. That's why we design swim and apparel that work double duty."

GETAWAY ESSENTIALS
"In my beach bag right now, I'm packing a fringed round towel, a pair of Cocobelle sandals, a portable speaker system and a good book—there's no better place to escape."
