Since I first saw the Agnes Valentine swimwear collection for girls in 2009 I have always thought there was a gem of a great idea there.
With its retro Chanel styling and navy/red/cream colourways it was fresh and non kiddy like but also sporty and stylish, a hard combination to pull off. The adult line has the same simplicity but with deeper cuts and less coverage.
The collection now does incorporate some girly colours and elements as it has grown but retains the sporty feel with a covered up and comfortable look for young girls. Made with low environmental impact, UPF 50+ premium Italian fabrics these are beautifully made pieces. This summer features pastel shades and semi – metallics but my favourites remain the French chic looking red/cream and blue.
