Here at Kini, we love bold, daring and creative style choices, so we were excited to see this gorgeous design by Melbourne based fashion blogger Alicia Elezovic from Staunchest Blog who is enraptured by all things fashion, especially different and unique creations. With an appreciation for creative design, Alicia unleashed her talents to build her own bespoke bikini which echoed her unique style, and we were more than impressed with the results.
Embracing one of our newest styles, the racer top, Alicia put an amazing high fashion twist on this seasons sportiest swimwear. The racer is the stand out piece of the sports luxe trend, one of our favourite trends this season, and we always love seeing the shape being taken in a unique direction. Bronte from Lion Lion Bazaar put a funky twist on the style with her leopard print ensemble and we also love the classic sports luxe vibe that Amanda Bisk created. Alicia, however, went elegant and minimalist on the racer choosing to block colour it in white.
White is a bold statement to make, whilst remaining elegant and chic, as monochrome colours always have an air of high fashion. We especially love how the white works on the racer back as it stands out whilst channeling minimalism. Alicia told us that monochrome fashion is her favourite, and Kini is all about designing your swimwear in tune with your own personal style and tastes. An all white bikini is a daring move, but one which was also favoured by Lisa from See Want Shop, take a look here at her design.
Alicia has totally nailed the racer, but it is a daunting shape to wear, so take a look here for some advice on rocking the style no matter your shape. Pairing it with 1950’s styled high-waisted bottoms, Alicia further transforms her bikini into a piece of high fashion, as high waisted pants show a little less skin, making your swimwear instantly more elegant. This combination is pretty unique, and we think it is a perfect set for pears and hourglass shaped ladies, as the cut off point of the pant happens at the smallest point of your hips, and the sharp lower sitting line of the racer further emphasizes your waist.
We love the stunning statement effect of Alicia’s swimwear, and we were so happy to hear that she loved the Kini process just as much! She told us that, like us, she found bikini shopping an endurance test, so we were ecstatic to read her glowing review. She wrote ‘I absolutely love the concept that Kini have created, they have made it easy for us to find the perfect bathers because they give us total control.’
We love hearing such positive feedback and we always love seeing photos of our happy customers in their beautiful bespoke Kini pieces, so don’t forget to send us your photos or tag us on Instagram after you have designed your perfect piece in our gallery!
