Hi Gidgets, and say hello to Skin and Bone!
This monthly pick is a personal favourite of mine, so I’m stoked to introduce you to Skin and Bone – the makers of my trusty surf suit for this time of the year.
The brand was born about two and half years ago; Jade from Skin and Bone says she identified a gap in the market for suits that appeal to intelligent, creative and courageous young women, so she set out to design a range of surf and swimwear for adventurous surfer girls that still want to feel sexy and feminine while charging waves alongside the boys.
Clean lines, inconspicuous branding and monochromatic textures define the understated, sophisticatedly sexy collection. The pieces offer stylish simplicity – while not forgetting functionality. The collection currently consists of 5 pieces only, but each is carefully crafted and offers a perfect fit for any surf conditions.
I got the pleasure of surf-testing a few key pieces – and as expected I will definitely be adding more Skin and Bone to my personal collection! My new favourite is the seamless lycra one-piece, which looks awesome and is great for small wave summer surfs. Both the bikini tops are great too, offering support and really stay on, even in bigger surf.
If you’re a gidget who wants to focus on the waves instead of a wedgie then you won’t regret choosing a Skin and Bone neoprene suit. The sleeveless one is great for those summer days when it’s not quite warm enough for a bikini (I wear mine all the time!), while the long sleeve suit will keep you warm even on late autumn or early spring surfs.
News for the coming year include a new sleeveless one-piece with a deeper collar, which is also the first Skin and Bone sample Jade originally made. It hasn’t been produced as part of the range before but will be available by next summer, alongside a few other new designs – can’t wait to see what’s next!
