Minimalism met swimwear when Lisa Hamilton collaborated with Kini Swimwear. Lisa from successful fashion blog See Want Shop designed two exclusive bikinis for us, which reflect her chilled, minimalist style. As an Australian brand, we are all about the Aussie infatuation with a relaxed beach lifestyle, so we are in love with Lisa’s designs.
See Want Shop is dedicated to Lisa’s personal style, which is a classic yet effortless aesthetic, in a similar vein to Kate Moss. The Australian style blogger is also a health care professional and her Instagram reflects this lifestyle as she aims to inspire and motivate her followers. At Kini, we love this health minded outlook on life which we share, as we believe looking after yourself and feeling good puts you straight on the track to body confidence.
Through her blog, Lisa shares her influences and style icons which have helped mould her own personal style. This strong sense of what she likes and how to dress for her figure and personality is what has made Lisa a leader within the fashion blogging community. Her minimalist chic style is elegant and classic, ensuring that she always looks the height of fashion and her swimwear designed exclusively for Kini Swimwear reflects her outlook.
Lisa’s first bikini is a perfectly classic piece all in white, only fitting for the queen of minimalism. The block colour of white channels a slightly boho vibe that wouldn’t look amiss on Sienna Miller. Block colours are a huge staple for beachwear fashion this season, and although seemingly simple, the white bikini is a pretty daring piece as the beach is often flooded with colour and prints, so it truly makes a bold statement for minimalism.
She has chosen to bring her vision to life in a 1950’s style underwired top and high waisted bottom, aesthetically linking to the vintage style which is huge this summer, and making a direct link to the famous Marilyn Monroe beach side images, screaming chic, understated glamour.

For her second bikini, Lisa truly unleashes her inner Kate Moss as this leopard print design reveals a wild, rock’n’roll side to the blogger. The more daring style is completed with a halter neck triangle top and brief bottoms, still in harmony with her minimalist style.
Seam to seam leopard print, Lisa’s second bikini throws an edgier vibe as it a classic rock style print. Providing a perfect contrast to her first bikini, her second piece is a darker style, yet she has chosen the perfect cuts for each bikini, as the smaller top and bottoms of her second bikini stops the leopard from being over the top, as it is broken up by large areas of skin.
Both of her designs complement her unique style, and we really love the difference between the two pieces, so she has something to wear whatever she’s feeling! The colour blocking and simple shapes on each of her pieces create minimalist and elegant swimwear and classic Australian beach style is truly mastered in each of these designs. Take a further look at what Lisa calls her ‘fierce’ design here.
With two designs to choose from, they each provide a piece of classic swimwear style, yet in totally different ways. Each one provides a different aesthetic to suit everyone whilst channeling an elegant look, making them perfect for the easy going Aussie girl with classic tastes.
