Placed prints

Print is taking it’s place front and centre this season. The front print is in! Loud and proud, you’ll be seeing placed prints all over this place this season. Text is used to add some quirky fun to your summer look. We’ve printed text on the front of bikinis. Check out our Waffle bikini where we’ve combined a front print with a gorgeous tie detail.

Here is our Waffle bikini with our "Less Monday" front print.

Seersucker and smocking

This summer we’re going crazy for fabrication techniques like seersucker and smocking. For those who don’t know what seersucker is (and you’re not alone), it’s a fine lightweight fabric that has a ruched appearance and it’s normally striped. Smocked fabric has a similar appearance where embroidery is used to gather the fabric together which makes it stretchy. A flattering look that’s all the rage this summer, we’ve converted these summer fabrics into bikinis. Have a look at the Sphere bikini, just what you need to be wearing this season.

Buckles and rings

It’s time to buckle up! This is a fabulous detail trend. A cool functional feature that connects elements of your bikini together. It also works as a kind of cut-out detail as it shows a little more skin making it feminine and fun. A statement detail that’s not just reserved for bags and belts, you’ll be seeing buckles and rings all over swimwear this season. Take a look at our Cracia bikini where we’ve used buckles at the shoulder straps.

High waist

Here is a swimwear trend you need to have on your radar. The high waist is the new norm for waistlines and the trendiest and most flattering two piece this season is the high waisted two piece. It’s a combination of comfort and style. The high-waist might be a retro look, but combine it with fresh prints and designs and it becomes a contemporary look you’ll be needing for you beach holiday. Take a look at our striped Special bikini where the high waist is combined with a high leg creating a new summer shape.

Scalloped edges

The prettiest trend of them all – the scalloped edge. For this bikini trend, we take the outer edges of the garment and create a row of convex curves so the hem has a wavy edge. This look is feminine and flirty. Scalloped edges transform an otherwise simple look into something special. A trend we just can’t get enough of, check out our Missisippi bikini with gorgeous scalloped detailing.

Palm prints

Blazing the way into the season of the sun, the tropical leaf print signals that the summer has begun. Taking us to a tropical paradise, the prints are of leaves that grow in places where the sun is always shining. We’ve created a print inspired by the fabulous fan palm and printed it on bikinis and a swimsuit. Take a look at our Whitney swimsuit and our sporty Prado or Citron bikini, perfect for those warm days. Channelling the tropics to wherever you are, it’s time to add a tropical leaf print to your summer.

Ruffles

Flowing ruffles are all over the place this summer. Adding a ruffle detail turns a simple swimsuit or bikini into something special. This look also allows you to create more depth and movement as the ruffles move with you. Check out our Prise swimsuit in an ocaen shade of green, PFC-free and fabulous. Or how about our Toffee bikini if you are looking for a two-piece? Keep an eye out for this playful swimwear trend.

Straps

Here at Protest, we are known for our focus on the details. We love adding that little bit extra. Straps are functional and they can be flirty and fun. We have played with straps, knotting them, crossing them and creating pattern with them, adding that extra touch of fun to your summer in the sun. Take a look at our Simpel bikini with strap details at the chest or our gorgeous Tide bikini with knotted details at the back and a beautiful all over print.
