Rachel Comey fans and anyone else who love a good throwback bikini, you have been blessed with the chance to pre-order the designer's first swimwear line as of today.
True to form, Comey's first stab at bathing suits is more interesting than it is sweet or pretty. The one-piece halters have tailored details like pleats and cutouts that keep them from being boring (even the solid black one). We'd happily wear either with a maxi skirt pretty much anywhere, all summer. Of the three bikinis, one goes full-on retro in 100% cotton (old school!) and a high-waisted silhouette in a classic stripe. The two others are regular old bikinis, except not, because they are made out of Comey's gorgeous prints. Check 'em all out in the gallery after the jump, complete with prices and shopping links.
