Despite limited shape and size, the right swimsuit can really pack a punch. Case in point: W Hotels & Resorts’ latest fashion collaboration with Australian swimwear brand We Are Handsome. Known for their fierce, wildlife-inspired designs—Beyoncé owns one of their panther-adorned suits—the husband-and-wife team behind the brand’s statement poolside attire translated the aquatic exoticism of W’s Asia-Pacific retreats into a pair of swimming trunks for men and a scoop-back one-piece for women, printed with a fluorescent image of plankton and jellyfish floating in a starry night sky. Night swimming, apparently, looks quite chic in the light of day. Gabrielle Lipton
