Minimalism in Monochrome: Lion in the Wild x Kini Swimwear

Perth based beauty Kiara King, founder of the gorgeous blog Lion in the Wild, sent us some envy inducing shots this week showcasing her brand new custom Kini on the white sands.


Lion in the Wild focuses on fashion and style for the Australian lifestyle, and what could be more perfect than a bikini you can design yourself to suit your body and personality. Kiara chose simple skinny black bottoms, a perfect choice for a self confessed beach addict, as they are lightweight so they won’t restrict your movement or activities.


Falling back on this season’s winning piece, Kiara chose the gorgeous racer top for her set, choosing to add short sleeves. The short sleeve racer gives a really surf chic vibe, creating an instant sports luxe look. We love how she has used monochrome for her racer too, as it creates a real minimalist look, one of our favourite swimwear trends. Lisa from See Want Shop also created a gorgeous minimalist piece for us earlier in the summer, take a look here if laid back chic is your thing.


Kiara’s stunning piece works miracles for athletic shaped ladies, as the racer cuts across your figure at the perfect place, breaking up the aesthetic of straight lines and creating curves. The skinny pant, like Kiara has chosen is the perfect companion too, as the lower slung waist will further add to this effect. For more tips on rocking the racer whatever your shape, take a look here.


This set is a beautifully casual piece, re-imagining the racer in a more minimalist way. We love seeing how you create your swimwear, so get in our design room now and send us your photos of your creations – but please, no stunning beach pictures until we’ve gotten over our jealousy from these ones!
