Bikini of the Week
In Uniform by Red Carter
I really enjoy putting together our ‘Bikini of the Week’ series. Getting to gush about beautiful bikinis - what’s not to like?!
But it’s also a great reason to step back and appreciate the diverse range of swimwear and swimwear styles around. Even within our range here at Azura, you’ll find incredible variety - from the lingerie inspired and ultra-sexy swimwear of Beach Bunny to the understated elegance of Maya Swimwear.
This week we’re celebrating the masterful styling of veteran swimwear designer Red Carter. In Uniform is the swim suit, and while Red Carter has no defined, signature style, In Uniform does encapsulate many of Red’s prevailing or signature swim suit traits.
Red Carter, like all top-of-the line swim suit designers, has an uncanny ability to take any chosen theme and apply it to a swim suit, no matter how masculine, abstract, simple or banal that theme is. But more than that, he has fun with his swim suits and always adds his own interpretation and unique touch.
I like Red Carter for his controlled flamboyance - his understanding of cut and detailing means that he never has to go over the top with his swim suits to get your attention. The swim suits are always special, always different, but not for any ‘shock value’ he attaches to them.
In Uniform is a great example of all of the above. In this swim suit, Red Carter has gone with the naval theme. It’s an oft used theme, however Red Carter’s approach is neither obvious nor over-the-top, as many naval inspired swim suits tend to be.

The swim suit comes in both white and an olive brown - playing to both the feminine and military aesthetics, and has embossed gold buttons at the hips and mid bust. The military/naval theme continues with fabric strips at the hips (reminiscent of a soldier’s jacket) as well as hipster brief styled bottoms, which in conjunction with the halter top, gives the swim suit a more athletic feel.
It’s a definitely a swim suit you could have some fun in, and be active in. Yet true to all Red Carter’s swim suits, it retains an undeniable feminine appeal, highlighting and enhancing the best of the female form.
I really love In Uniform. If you haven’t has a chance to take a good look at this swim suit, I recommend you do so. Same goes for Red Carter, he is the master of women’s swimwear and not to be missed!
