Couture Crochet: Anna Kosturova Swimwear

Darlings, CC is thrilled to again be featuring Anna Kosturova Collection, an exquisite line of bikinis, maillots, and beach cover ups in expertly crafted crochet.  Here's a bit about the collection from the website:

"Our line of hand-crocheted swimwear and cover-ups is designed by Anna Kosturova in her Vancouver, Canada studio and produced overseas by a family of generations of crochet artisans whom Anna has known personally for many years.
Every piece in our handcrafted, affordable couture collection is made with the environment in mind. It takes time to develop new stitches and new designs, on average 2 years, that’s why new styles are introduced only once a year. Anna Kosturova Collection is definitely not fast, disposable fashion, but something to be kept in a modern heirloom way, like works of art you collect over the years."

Anna's lovely pieces have been featured numerous times in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition over the years, and it's no wonder ~ how sultry are these suits?

All items at annakosturova.com.
Angel Frillkini. 
Flashback Bikini.

Lacy Playkini.  CC has in powder blue and absolutely adores!  The boyshort bottom is so fun and flirty paired with the sexy string top!

Lattice Maillot.

Metropolis Monokini.  So sexy!

Mirage Hipsterkini.

Pearly Halterkini.

Rio Bikini.

Riviera Shortkini.


Summer Tassel Bikini.

Which couture crochet piece are you coveting?

I like the very first one - so cute! But I am afraid to get crochet wet...my aunt had a bathing piece like this, and it always got heavy and fell off!!

I am in love with MULTIPLES - I love how teeny they are without looking TOO sexy (they're definitely the sexiest one could go - which is a GOOD thing).

Thank you for sharing, these are definitely added to my "must buy before beach trip #1 2012"
