We’re going back to back Sauvage Swimwear here at Bikini of the Week. But while last week saw us look at one of last year’s quiet achievers, the sexy black bikini Chains, this week we’re looking at a hot new swimsuit number from the 2009 Sauvage Swimwear range, Chocolate Suede.
Chocolate Suede: the name alone is sexy. But it’s the sight of this bikini that will truly have you drooling. Similarly to Chains, Chocolate Suede comes decked in metal detailing, but here the look is hot and heavy with thick, gold link chains. Luckily, the quality of the detailing, as with all Sauvage swimsuits, is premium, so while the chains are durable and sturdy, they’re also lightweight and comfortable - a must for any bikini. In fact, the detailing on the bikini bottoms also includes an additional piece of material, added for comfort and support.
For me, the gold link chain detailing spells sophistication - with a touch of rock ‘n’ roll flair! Beach Bunny Swimwear is very good at this look, but with Chocolate Suede, Sauvage Swimwear is certainly giving them a run for their swimsuit money! This season, we’re going to be seeing a lot of chocolate browns - not just from Sauvage, but from all the major boutique designer swimwear labels. The Chocolate Suede by Sauvage however, would have to be the quintessential example. I might have said this simply because I love the Sauvage version. However, having already seen many, if not all, of the other designer swimwear collections, I mean it definitively.
More than a chocolate brown, the Chocolate Suede is toned and textured, giving the bikini fabric character and body. Also, at a distance, the visual appeal of the bikini is different to what it is up close, again adding character and unique charm to the swimsuit.
Another added benefit of the brown bikini is its ability to look clean longer and its difficulty to stain. I for one tend to dirty my clothes easily and while I’m an absolute fan of white bikinis, it’s refreshing not to have to worry about it so much.
The Chocolate Suede bikini by Sauavge comes in a halter style top that includes removable pads for extra support and string ties at the neck and back. The pads are useful also for a more flattering look at the bust. The bikini bottoms are low rise at the front, but provide moderate coverage at the front. Personally, I love the degree of coverage you’ll find in most Sauvage bikinis - not too little, but also, not too much.
Chocolate Suede is pretty much hot off the factory floor, as are all the new designer swimsuits by Sauvage. But whether you’re after a beautiful number from last year’s swimwear season, or ready for something new from this year’s range, Sauvage is always a safe yet seriously stunning option.
