Camilla And Marc Get In The Swim


You’ve got to hand it to the Australians—they do know their way around a swimsuit. Camilla and Marc is the latest antipodean brand to prove the point: After dipping their toe into the swimwear waters (so to speak) last season, designers Marc Freeman and Camilla Freeman-Topper have launched a full range of beach togs for spring. Currently available at Shopbop, the suits put the signature coquettish Camilla and Marc spin on swim—a strapless maillot, for example, is covered seam to seam in ruffles—and draw on some of the same tailoring techniques that feature in the brand’s apparel. “We designed this collection so it could be paired back with the mainline pieces and worn together,” explains Freeman-Topper, who goes on to note that geography is no accident when it comes to that Oz talent for swimwear design. “We live by the beach in Bondi.”
