We're Loving: Acne's 2010 Swim Collection



    Leave it to Acne to make a swimwear collection that's both minimalist and flattering, with a healthy dose of retro poolside glamour.

    The Swedish label still best known for its simple, dark denim has debuted a line of swim for summer that incapsulates all the brand's best qualities in design: The pieces are cut to flatter -- from a high-waist bikini bottom (bless them) to the ultimate slimming black one-piece -- and all carry the label's signature forward-thinking-yet-classic lines. In this case, the '50s-inspired straps on the bikinis and the one-piece seem like the kinds of pieces Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth might have worn to the shore, while the two-layered swimsuit is a chic take on a lifeguard-worthy sporty silhouette.

    Acne's Swim Collection is available exlusively at Acne Studio at 10 Greene Street, or online at acnestudios.com.
