The Evolution of the Swimsuit

072016SISKOThe history of swimwear began long before the modern day bikini. In the 19th century, swimming suits consisted of up to six pieces of clothing, including stockings, which were used by both men and women. These bathing suits could weigh more than five kilograms when wet - even more in the case of women, as they included small pieces of lead to weigh down their skirts when entering the sea, a feature which caused more than a few drownings. Cotton, silk, wool, everything was a possibility, as long as it was black, navy or red - colours that water didn’t render transparent.

In 1907 the first great swimwear trend began when the Australian swimmer, Annette Kellerman jumped into the sea sporting a one-piece swimsuit. She was arrested for this public scandal, but managed to draw the world’s attention towards the need for lighter clothing.

At this time the growing popularity of railroads led to seaside resorts becoming increasingly accessible to the general public. Into this new world came a new, fashionable sensibility in the resorts of San Sebastian, Bournemouth and Deauville, where a young Coco Chanel opened a boutique to sell fresh linen dresses and nautical style shirts. This enterprising woman would become the inventor of nautical spirit.

In the 1920s, men and women no longer wore stockings on the beach and men increasingly dispensed with the top part of their swimsuits while also revealing more than half of their legs; women’s bathing suits became tighter and shorter. Two decades later came the emphasis of curves, with cups, V-necks, and lots of leg, thanks to the first ever presentation of the bikini in Paris by Louis Reard, which caused both scandal and surprise. However, in 1962, the whole world fell silent and admired Ursula Andress in Dr. No, emerging from the sea in an incredible two-piece designed by Tessa Prendergast, which effectively heralded the era of two-piece dominance.

CHIC

Whether you surf, dive, swim, play beach volleyball, or do any kind of watersport, owning a bikini that stays put is a necessity. A comfortably fitting swimsuit allowing ease of movement and plenty of coverage is essential. Therefore, look for a swimming top that offers support and is fixed - avoid sliding triangle tops. The bottom needs to have either double side ties, thick and secure elastic sides, or a drawstring which allows you to you tighten the bathing suit so that it doesn’t ride up or slide down. Don’t forget a hat to protect your head and a pair of matching sunglasses to protect your eyes and complete your gorgeous look!

 
Sisko Akt Present Across the World

SiskoToday we live on a globalised and inclusive planet. What is fashion if not a reflection of culture, style and individuality? Let's embrace the beauty of difference by admiring other cultures and adopting a multicultural lifestyle that pays tribute to the beauty of the world. This production by Sisko Akt celebrates multiculturalism and cultural appreciation through fashion.

The richness of landscapes and nature in our world inspired the concept behind this shoot, where the contrasts of hot and cold, colourful and neutral, tropical greens and rocky whites make an impact by merging opposites, resulting in a stellar culture-shock combination. The growing fascination with other cultures and our willingness to embrace styles from other regions shows our acceptance and respect for other backgrounds, and our ability to have fun while honouring each other's differences.

In our case, multiculturalism was present in our lives since we first opened our eyes. Our parents came from opposite sides of the world - Finland, where the icy whites and peaceful blues of the Scandinavian Winter dominate the colour palette, and Chile, where the South American climate produces extrovert and bright coloured ensembles. This unusual mix of opposite cultures and customs has manifested in our lives as a love of contrasts, combining the unexpected and expressing them in the form of art.

What truly defines this unity of ethnic backgrounds is very present in the world of fashion. The fact that designers have incorporated cultures outside their own into their own designs has resulted in beautiful outfits that have a traditional aesthetic with a twist that doesn't eliminate its origins entirely. Whether it’s European, South American, Asian or African, fashion will inspire you to look for ideas outside of your own culture...
