Victoria's Secret label presents its take on this summer's poolside looks

3 APRIL 2008
With April here and summer finally on the horizon, thoughts turn to preparing beach-ready bods and assembling the latest seasonal staples.

Offering some suggestions for 2008 swimwear this week was luxury lingerie label Victoria's Secret, which presented its new swimwear collection in New York.

And the way to go if you want to have any fashion cred on the shoreline seems to be colourful prints, faux patchwork and graduated, tie-dye-reminiscent creations. The fashion label presented an itsy-bitsy cut - naturally - for bikinis, while taking the same less-is-more approach to one-pieces, which feature cutaway panels, spaghetti-strap fastings and extra detailing.
