Label to Watch: We Are Handsome

If you often have trouble locating your friends at the beach, we suggest wearing one of We Are Handsome swimsuits. It's easily one of the coolest swimwear lines we’ve seen in a long time. The vintage-inspired collection is a collaboration between two Aussies: Indhra Chagoury of Oscar & Elvis swimwear and Jeremy J. Somers of product design firm People Like Us, which sells iPod and iPhone covers. The swimsuits feature unexpected bold, iconic images like James Dean, a roaring lion, a Miami sunset and pin-up girls, printed onto relatively timeless silhouettes. (Though, we have to admit, the scoop-back one piece featured throughout their look book reminds us of early ‘90s Baywatch.) And while the model looks great posing and lounging around, we wonder how the thin, barely-there swimsuits would hold up through a few laps, or how they would hold certain other things up.

Considering the suits only come in extra-small, small and medium, it would seem that catering to a wide variety of body types is not the main concern. However, if the mission is to make attention-grabbing, statement-making pieces out of a relatively limiting category of apparel such as swimwear, We Are Handsome is definitely a contender.

Australia is currently moving into winter, but the people behind We Are Handsome have smartly made their wares, which range from $169-$225, available to those of us on the Northern hemisphere via Opening Ceremony (NY and LA), Modcloth.com and Yoox.com.
