I’m constantly in search of that perfect bikini… you know the one… the one that highlights all the right curves but at the same time cleverly disguises your not-so-great bits. I know that’s kinda like searching for a unicorn, but these bikinis do exist… I believe it!
This is why I’m so sad that I’m likely gonna have to miss out on this COCO Lifestyle summer launch sale on 10 Dec at the St Yves Beach Club in Camps Bay:
Who/what is COCO? It’s a proudly South African swimwear brand brought to you by a girl by the name of Clarisa Nel. Side note: People can never properly pronounce or spell my name. Nine times out of ten I’m called Clarisa as well. I get tired of correcting people, so most of the time I just roll with it. So if anybody is reading this right now thinking “What? But I’ve been calling her Clarisa for yonks…” – it’s K-A-R-I-S-A, no “l” and spelt with a “K” cause ek is Afrikaans.
Anyhoo,COCO is actually quite a big deal brand. Clarisa’s swimwear has been featured in Sports Illustrated, FHM and most recently in the Cosmo Swimwear fashion show.
I’ve spent some time studying the various collections on the COCO website and have already selected my favourites:
And try to get there early ladies. I know the invite says you’ve got from 10am to 3pm, but trust me, this is something you’ll want to get to early. The more options you have to try on, the greater your chances of finding that unicorn…
