Retro Swimwear With Andrea Iyamah's S/S 14 Collection

Label Andrea Iyamah releases a retro swimwear Spring/Summer 14 collection.

The new Andrea Iyamah Spring/Summer 14 collection offers up a wide selection of ultra-feminine retro swimsuits. Based in Canada, the label stands for a woman's right to simply be herself and aims to "flatter females from the conservative to the daring and risky." Nigerian born designer Iyamah knows how to accentuate a woman's figure with details and structure. The designs aren't about revealing the wearer's body but, rather, suggesting it with sheer and skin. Watch the look book video below and scroll through our gallery to see the swimwear collection pictures. If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #andreaiyamah.
