With summer quickly approaching, swimsuits are on my mind. From the biggest swim trends of 2022 to the cool swimsuits sitting in my cart right now, I’m ready to discuss all things beach attire. That also includes the key designer swimsuit brands to have on your radar. Looking to the fashion set, there are some that are in heavy rotation and feel particularly suitcase-worthy if you’re looking to make a summer splurge.

From buzzy designers like Nensi Dojaka that are relatively new on the fashion scene to heritage brands including Chanel, there is a range of brands that have landed on the designer-swimsuit short list. Ahead, see the eight designer swimsuit brands you’ll spot on the fashion set this summer. The styles range from bright, vibrant prints and cool cutouts to pieces with satin finishes and classic lines, so you'll be sure to find something to add to your cart. 

Louisa Ballou

Louisa Ballou is known for her signature pieces that infuse vibrant surf-inspired prints and cool silhouettes designed with cutouts and asymmetrical shapes. With fans including Bella Hadid, there is no doubt that the brand has already reached cult status.

Christopher Esber

Christopher Esber may be known for his stunning cutout dresses and forward designs in the world of ready-to-wear, but he applies the same design prowess to swimwear. Bikinis simply don't get cooler.

Designer swimsuit brands: Iss Boulder



Isa Boulder is instantly recognizable because of the swimwear's satiny finish and beautiful ruching details, making it the most glamorous thing you can slip into for a trip to the beach.

Nensi Dojaka

Designer swimsuit brands: Nensi Dojaka



Nensi Dojaka is best known for its slinky runway pieces finished with cutouts and barely there straps, and you can now find that same design aesthetic available in the swimwear department. This is the brand's first season launching swimsuits, and I expect them to be huge for summer.


Chanel swimsuits have always been big among the fashion set, but they have even more of a cult following this summer thanks to the S/S 22 runway show that showcased '90s-inspired silhouettes.

Another brand that is synonymous with luxe swimwear? Oséree. The brand's glittering swimsuits are a favorite on the fashion scene, as are its cool prints.


Designer swimsuit brands: Matteau



When it comes to the peak of cool minimal swimsuits, Matteau is the brand to know. The Australian label has mastered simple lines and timeless silhouettes but also throws in season-defining trends.


Designer swimsuit brands: Eres



It doesn't get more classic than Eres. The French brand's swimsuits are true investment pieces, so if you're looking to buy something now that you can own forever, this is what to order.
