August Society: great for prints
Inspired by her European friends who regularly take the month off to travel, founder Toni Chan recognised the need for gorgeous swimwear upon her relocation to Singapore. We love that Toni’s heavily invested in her designs – she personally selects all of the prints and every detail of the suits. All suits are crafted from quality, sustainable Italian-made fabric and XtraLife Lycra to help retain their shape.
August Society is available online and authorised stockists including Isetan Scotts, Zhai Tanglin Mall, Foliage United Square and Simone Irani.
Bella Kini: for something unique
Frequent shoppers of Bugis Street would find Bella Kimi familiar. The swimwear boutique was once a hole-in-the-wall haunt for avid sun worshippers. Today, it retains its cosy charm in a shophouse along Haji Lane, bringing with it its impeccable fitting experience and sincere customer service. To help ease your swimwear buying process, staff will be on hand to recommend the best suits according to your preferences and body shape.
