Hot Summer Swimwear: Modest Creatures

If you're looking for  a fierce, ferocious suit to spend your final days of summer in, these animal-embossed aquatic ensembles from designers Indhra Chagoury and Jeremy Jules Somers of the Australia-based brand We Are Handsome may be the perfect fit.

Founded in Australia in 2009 and designed down under ever since, We Are Handsome is inspired by the elegant adventurism of the 1970s, '80s and '90s. The dynamic duo of Chagoury and Somers ensure that each piece is "100 percent Australian designed; every thread is Australian sewn, and every [We Are Handsome] suit is loved."

Wild horses, white tigers, and bald eagles are among the pack of predators featured in the 2013 line, The Crossing, with swimwear styles including string bikinis, scoop one pieces, and even beach cover-ups.

The line is quickly adorning the shelves of international retailers, and has a flock of celebrity followers such as Katy Perry and Rihanna. 

We Are Handsome will unveil its new line, The Divine, at this year’s Miami Swim Week. The line will be available in stores and online this November.
