You don't need a time machine to channel the glory of California's beaches circa the '60s. This slimming, strapless swimsuit does the work for you, shirred for a flattering fit and styled with a bead-tipped tie that serves as a halter strap should you so choose. It's made from Faherty's signature swimwear fabric, a soft, lightweight and environmentally conscious combo of fibers derived from recycled plastic bottles and stretchy Lycra® with a finish that keeps the color vibrant and protects against salt water and chlorine—summer after summer.
Twin brothers are the brains—and the name—behind the brand, launched in 2013: Mike, a former Ralph Lauren designer, and Alex, who worked in private equity, have caught waves around the world, from the beaches near their childhood New Jersey home to the shores of Costa Rica. Hawked at their flagship SoHo store modeled after a beach bungalow—complete with tiki hut—and within the recycled-barn walls of a mobile beach shack that's toured America, their clothing captures a carefree life where time is measured by the changing tides, not a clock on the wall.
