When we first eyed the poolside trend of the season on the Tommy Hilfiger spring runway and we knew we had to have it. With his rainbow flatforms, patchwork shirt dresses, and bright crocheted bikinis, Hilfiger painted the perfect picture of the vacation we had yet to book but had already started planning in our heads.
As summer is finally on its way Charlie Pea has teamed up with Miramar Swim – a crochet bikini brand with all the brightest colours and perfect styles you’ve been looking for. This years trend of vibrant and colourful crochet bikini have been seen all around the world so who better to talk to then the brand who brought it straight from Bali.
These unique, fun and summary pieces have taken complete control of the bikini market – this colourful crochet trend is definitely here to stay.
Miramar Swim was born among the vibrant colours of Bali, Indonesia. From the freshly picked succulent fruit displayed at the local markets to the animated shops fill with florescent artisan-made goods, and the naturally bright hues of the ever surrounding foliage, the island burns with colours. The dreamlike culture of Bali combined with their love for the ocean, inspired the team to create a unique bikini of the perfect shape and material that would awaken emotions deep within. Each bikini is handmade using a distinctive combination of colours, crocheted together to form a truly one-of-a-kind piece that stands in and out of the water. All miramar Swimwear is handmade with Love, and each and every piece is unique, just like you.

What is the ideal girl to wear Miramar Swim?
Each and every Miramar Bikini is special, just like the girl wearing it. The “ideal” girl to wear a Miramar Swim Bikini would be one that has accepted and embraced her individuality (or one that is on her way there). Each Miramar Swim bikini is a unique combination of 8-10 different colours crocheted together to produce a beautiful bikini that stands out in and out of the water. A Miramar Swim bikini is ideal for the traveler, the adventurer, the dreamer, the wanderer, the explorer, the thinker, and the lover.
About the brand:
Although the inspiration for Miramar Swim was conceived in Bali, Indonesia, Miramar Swim is currently located in Vancouver, Canada. All Miramar Swimwear is handmade with Love in Hong Kong, and packaged in Vancouver with 100% recycled materials.
About the colours:
From the freshly picked succulent fruit displayed at the local markets to the animated shops filled with florescent artisan-made goods, and the naturally bright hues of the ever surrounding foliage, the island of Bali burns with colour. These colours inspire a wide range of feelings and emotions within: serenity, contentment, cheerfulness, joy, excitement, hope, wonder, and many more. Each Miramar swimsuit is handmade using a distinctive combination of popular Bali colours.
About the fit:
All Miramar Swimwear is made by hand with love. Our bikini bottoms are Brazilian cut, and are made to be skimpy. Pieces are made from 100% cotton crochet, which is a natural fiber and will expand once worn repeatedly. Miramar Swimwear is intended to feel snug when first tried on, but once worn in water, your bikini will naturally form to your unique body shape.
