Chic on the beach

There you can find sexy poolside-style designs catering to sophisticated men and women who appreciate things that are chic and unusual. Sauvage baiting suits are designed locally by Elizabeth Southwood to have plenty of attitude. Her eye-catching suits are not only loved by La Jolla and its visitors, but they are enjoyed worldwide — One of her “Starlet” style bikinis is worn by the gorgeous Russian supermodel Irina Shayk on the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Other bathing suits from Sauvage are designed with interesting cut-out details to accentuate feminine curves or adorned with jeweled embellishment to accessories the sunbather’s wardrobe. The men’s line is equally elegant — perfect for the man who prefers a more fitted bathing suit rather than a board short.
