Design By Humans’s Swimwear collection

As heralded by a recent design contest, Design By Humans now offers a swimwear collection! Beach-y patterns are very well-represented, and there’s also a smattering of abstraction. I like the variety in boldness and print size, and that there’s a wide range of colors.

For my money, though, the best design on offer is Foliage Verse 2 by Ingkong (available in both one piece and board shorts). The large, simply drawn shapes immediately grab attention and more subtle details within the forms addd texture that holds interest. The overlapping gives a sense of depth that feels appropriate to the oceanic inspiration, like something exciting might be hiding behind each strand of seaweed or stalk of coral. It feels both alive and abstract at the same time in a way that I think will be very wearable.

Check out all the new designs and products in Design By Humans’ swimwear collection.
