For anyone tired of their go-to triangle bikini, local designer Leilanni Todd’s eponymous swimwear collection is a refreshing summer wardrobe update. Dubbed the “Yes! Project,” it’s a series of playful collaborations with up-and-coming artists that combine bold prints—including graphic touches and even some cheeky #freethenipple nudity—with Leilanni’s handcrafted suits and bikinis. Our favourite is Berlin-based Maiko Gubler’s artsy one-piece, which showcases broad brush strokes on a peach or black background. Universally flattering, the suit can pass for a regular leotard when paired with denim cut-offs, making for an extremely easy hot-weather ensemble. Plus, a super-low scooped back means you won’t have to worry about any weird tan lines. $200
