Bikini 2009 Fashion Trends

Come Spring/Summer 2009 we’re all going to be eager to hit the beach; preferably one of many from the beauty of the Mediterranean.

String bikini

But which swimwear pieces and bikinis will women be wearing?

2009 fashion trends will again be a major influencer and, in particular, the year’s one shoulder fashion trend.

* One-Shoulder Bikinis and Monokinis
* Cut-Away Bikinis
* Accessorizing A Bikini

One-Shoulder Bikinis / Monokinis

2009 bikini trends one shoulder

Taking their cues from the one shoulder fashion trend, one-shouldered bikinis will be the must have swimwear in 2009.

Thankfully, a standout one-shouldered swimwear piece isn’t going to be hard to come by.

1. Marios Schwab married the one-shouldered bikini with the cutaway bikini trend on his Spring/Summer 2009 runway at London Fashion Week. This particular piece also uses Summer florals taking what a risqué bikini to a girl level. It’s cut and under-strapping make this a particular good piece for smaller chested girls.

2. Victoria’s Secret included a single-shouldered piece in their 2008 line-up. More notable for it’s side-tie briefs, this attention grabbing feature makes it a good bikini for girls whose legs are stand out.

3. A one-shouldered monokini was naturually used on Hervé Léger by Max Azria‘s Spring/Summer 2009 catwalk but sadly with no-where near the same sex appeal as other pieces in the collection. Read cut-away swimwear below for more

4. Under his own name Max Azria also sent a single-shouldered monikini down the catwalk, again pairing it with the cut-away trend. This particular piece stands out for it’s use of a buckle clasp to join the body fabric with the shoulder. As with piece 3, smaller breasted girls are probably to avoid these particular cuts as they their black fabric will need some filling out to look best.

5. While not truly a one-shoulder monokini, Gottex’s piece from their Spring/Summer 2009 collection has the same visual effect. It’s clever halter neck also allows for a more revealing but and better support.

6. Finally, if you still have access to 2008 pieces; Gucci debuted their sophisticated take on the one-shouldered monokini as a part of their Spring/Summer 2008 collection.

Cut-Away Swimwear / Bikinis

cut away bikini trend2009

Cut away clothes pieces are a major trend of 2009 and much like the one shoulder trend, it’s a style being applied to bikinis and swimwear. Infrequently demure, this really is one bikini trend that screams ‘sex’!

1. Not as tightly fitting as other ‘spray on’ monokinis this season, Amanda Wakeley‘s white one-piece pairs a deep neck line with cut-away sides.

2. A two-piece with boob-tube, this bikini by Carmen Marc uses the cut-away trend with subtlety. All the same, these cutaway briefs are more than eye catching.

3. A monokini by Carmen Marc, this swimwear piece is equally as subtle as the aforementioned two-piece, but far more demure.

4. Similar to Amanda Wakeley‘s white one-piece (1) this screen-printed monokini is from Miss Sixty.

5. The most luxurious of the pieces featured, this almost-two-piece monokini from Gottex pairs a halter-neck top, joined briefs, and gold piping.

6. – 10. are all from the one catwalk which screamed sex, decadence, and youth; the one catwalk that really grabbed my eye at New York Fashion Week; Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring/Summer 2009. With enough cut-away than you can possibly wear throughout Summer, these are knock-out pieces that you’re not necessarily going to want to get wet.

Dressing Up Your Swimwear

Of course, all swimwear isn’t for swimming in. For any fashioniser beaches, pools and resorts are equally about socialising and mojitos as they are about cultivating the perfect tan; face facts, we’re not always there to get our toes wet.

Enter a Spring/Summer season where no beach-wear will be complete without accessorizing. And the one key trend to use? The sheer trend.

While he gave us some of the season’s sexiest bikinis by way of label Hervé Léger, with his own label Max Azria relied on the sheer trend (1 & 2) as a way of setting off otherwise lackluster swimwear; a good thing to note if you intend to recycle pieces from last year. Gottex one upped him however, with their gold, floral halter sheer slip which was a stand out of New York Fashion Week‘s swimwear fashions (3).

Hats off though to Milly by Michelle Smith Spring/Summer 2009 who sent her models down the runway with beachwear accessorizing perfect for 2009’s bohemian fashion trend.


Designer Marc Jacobs handbags for Spring-Summer 2009

Spring is all about expressing yourself more freely, and this is naturally reflected in the clothes and accessories we wear as well. Fashion designers, it is only understandable, are not the ones to overlook this – on the contrary, it’s on what they base all their creations.

However, out of the lot, it’s perhaps Marc Jacobs that really asks you to be bolder and more beautiful than ever come this spring, with the newly launched collection of bags plus accessories at New York Fashion week.

To start with, as attractive and colorful as this new line might be, it’s not for everybody.

Marc Jacobs has always been a designer for the select few because his limits in terms of creativity are close to non-existent, therefore everything that comes out bearing his signature is audacious beyond imagination.

The same note of boldness characterizes the latest line as well – multi-layered, shiny and almost too flashy for their odd combination of colors, the Marc Jacobs bags are made exclusively for women who are not afraid to have all eyes on them no matter where they go.

And, believe it, that will happen – guaranteed – with one of these totes strapped to one’s shoulder.

Thakoon at New york Fashion week Spring 2009

The looks on the Thakoon runway had a playful — but sophisticated — naughtiness to them; prints like lipstick kisses and false eyelashes and chiffon gowns with pleated bodices.

Skin colors such as nude, buff and beige were punctuated with textured black, deep red and bougainvillea. The lipstick kisses were subtle, like a sheer nude kisses trench coat with a tulle fringe. And rose prints were featured on several of the dresses, such as a rose print seamed dress with dark ribbon trim.

Designer Thakoon Panichgul designed the printed dress that Michelle Obama wore the night her husband accepted the nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

“Seeing it was magical,” he said.

Peter Som’s spring runway was a closet full of clothes for the young and beautiful set. The collection was an even mix of tropical colors and neutral earth tones, resortwear and cocktail dresses.

Som mixed textures — an organza shirt with tweed skirt, and a shiny linen taffeta dress — which gave the overall impression of chic clothes without stuffiness. Corset-style tops with fuller, flirty bottoms also provided some playfulness.

In an interview ahead of the show, Som described the look as his signature of “quirkily romantic dressing and relaxed elegance” — and moving it to the desert. Many of the best looks, however, must have come from Som’s oasis: beautiful hues of ocean blue, including lagoon, aqua and azure.

J. Lo To Guest Judge On Project Runway

Jennifer Lopez is taking her style skills to the runway. She’s just been announced as a guest judge for the upcoming season of Project Runway.

Well it hasn’t actually been announced. In fact, execs are trying their hardest at keeping a tight lid on the news, but it’s the rumor, and Nina

Garcia says, “The guest star is one of the most iconic women around. It’s going to take the cake.”

She shoots the episode this Friday, which will be the season finale. It’s such a shame we have to wait til ’09 for it to start!
