Frankie Four Bathing Suits

I'm sure many of you remember Frankie Four's vintage bathing suits from last year, you know the ones with the cool colorful fabrics and retro cuts. Well they are back! Frankie Four designer, Angela has really brought some fun and interesting fabrics this year. She hand sews each suit from repurposed vintage fabrics in her Seattle studio and creates something reminiscent and wearable. Her men's trunks are a personal favorite. All trunks are 1960's  style at a mid legnth and slim fit. I could totally see a group of my friends hanging out in the Rockaways wearing these suits. Angela's talent is sewing these hard to work with fabrics is obvious and her genuine love for vintage is contagious.
