The 1970s-inspired gowns Vanessa Seward designs for Paris fashion house Azzaro are gorgeous, but they run $1,300 or more a pop. (Most are priced around $2,400.)
That's why it's refreshing to hear that the label's new Beachwear line, a part of the resort collection, features bathing suits starting at a not-so-crazy $245, as well as terrycloth robes and Lycra dresses from $530.
Of course, this still isn't cheap. But Seward designs with an exactness that is rare in fashion. If you adore her pieces, Beachwear might be worth its price.
