Bikini of the Week
Crochet by Sauvage Swimwear
We’re going back-to-back Sauvage with another beautiful swimsuit from the Californian designer making it to number one on this week’s Bikini of the Week. Last week saw Venezia in the hot spot, one of Sauvage’s most stunning one piece swimsuits, and also, our first one piece to be featured on Bikini of the Week. If you missed the post, make sure to read it here.This week, however, the two piece bikini is back and looking more beautiful than ever. It is Crochet by Sauvage Swimwear and it’s a little bohemian, a little chic, and very sexy.

I must admit I have a soft spot for this bikini - it is actually one of the first swimsuits I picked up this season and I wear it regularly. It’s fantastic when you’re able to get good mileage out of a swimsuit. While designer swimsuits are indeed beautiful, it must be said that some are a little less practical than others. A male friend of mine likes to call this type of swimsuit a ‘toe-dipper’, which I find to be a cutely humorous description! True, some women’s swimsuits are made to be admired out of the water, while others are made for swimming in the waves. However, there does exist those few, rare swimsuits that are able to be both - beautiful and practical - and Crochet by Sauvage Swimwear is one of those swimsuits. Surprising as it may be, it’s actually a difficult combination to pull off.
Crochet by Sauvage Swimwear, as I mentioned above, has a definite boho feel to it - crocheted fabrics have always been associated with this style and this swimsuit is no different. Well, that’s not entirely true. The Crochet bikini is actually quite unique - like it’s ability to be sexy yet functional, it is also has the ability to be both bohemian and sophisticated, giving it a huge point of difference. The main body of the bikini top and bottom is made from an imported Italian nylon, and is also fully lined, while the circular detailing at the hips and bust is made from a high quality crocheted thread. So instead of constructing the entire bikini out of a crocheted fabric, which can be hard to dry, can give an unflattering shape and can also be a little too hippie-looking, the swimsuit strikes a perfect balance with just a hint of bohemian crocheted flair. It’s a great idea and works an absoulte charm.
I wear this swimsuit both by the pool and at the beach, and while I’m a black swimsuit lover making me a little-black biased, it is a great color for this bikini. One, it doesn’t get dirty, which could be a problem for the crocheted detailing if it was a lighter shade. But secondly, it really sets off the circular pattern and aesthetic look of the crocheted detailing - from a distance, the contrast of the black shapes against the flesh immediately catches your eye. The look is soft and feminine, but show-stopping at the same time.
Sauvage Swimwear is synonymous for its quality swimsuits and I have found this to be 100% the case with the Crochet bikini. There’s nothing worse than buying a swimsuit for its details, be it jewels, shells, bead or strings, and have them fall off or break soon after you’ve purchased it. But the crochet detailing on this bikini is surprisngly sturdy - and I’ve certainly taken it for a tumble in the waves! It also gives great, and adjustable, support at the bust and the coverage at the back is moderate.
So if you’re looking for a great all-rounder kind of a swimsuit, that also has a point of difference, then I highly recommend the Crochet bikini by Sauvage. Soft, yet sophisticated, practical, yet feminine, what more could you want?!
