You may have noticed a few swimwear additions to our site over the last week; this is because we recently spotted fellow indies Wolf & Whistle's swimwear range and noticed it goes up to an F cup - something the Deadlies have been asking for forever - and decided a pop-up was in order. Don't worry, we do have some designs of our own we're sitting on (you wouldn't believe how hard the timing is to get swimwear on the shelves for summer...) Perhaps next year we'll be able to book the production space in time :)
In the meantime, we're loving these bold, strappy swimsuits and two pieces from WW, not to mention their cute carnations, slinky snakeskin, and dark floral prints, which we think KMD fans will love; and they're not a million miles away from vintages style either...

Wolf & Whistle are the sister brand of lingerie favourites Playful Promises, a company we've worked with and stocked for many years. WW came about when PP head honcho Emma got together with business partner Louise to create a new arm of the company with a fashion-forward focus, aimed at the twentysomething-plus professional woman with an eye for bold prints and statement pieces.
You can find quite a few of their amazing dresses, cardies and blazers in my wardrobe... and I'm looking forward to adding a few of these swim sets too! Now if only the London Summer would make an appearance, although well, any excuse for a trip somewhere sunny if not :)
Which style is your favourite?
