Beautiful Unique Handmade Swimwear you need to know about for summer! + BTS photoshoot

Hey Everyone

So a few weeks ago photographer Richie Buttle was visiting Los Angeles from Ireland so we set up a photoshoot while he was in town! we ended up getting off to a really late start and we were chasing sunlight so we didn't get to shoot as much as we had planned but we did shoot some fab swimwear that I wanted to tell you about! ... Khongboon Swimwear!

If you are looking for some unique bikinis and swimsuits for Summer 2015 then I would definitely recommend checking them out!x!

Khongboon swimwear is truly unique and offer handmade luxury swimwear in original designs, prints and cuts!

visit their online store or stop by their instagram for shopping inspiration 

We shot on my apartment roof top in Hollywood. It was great to see Richie again as it has been years since we last shot together in his studio at home in Ireland and it's always nice to hear the Irish accent abroad! and it was my first time working with Valentino but he is a really nice guy and the three of us had a lot of laughs! 

I have yet to receive the professional images back but here are a bunch of BTS (behind the scenes) pics taken on my phone!x! If you're not already make sure to follow me on instagram @ShahiraBarry I post a lot of pics on there ;)

The Bikini...


About this bikini: This bikini is a 4 in 1 design with 4 different wearing options!! both the bottom and top are reversible! you can wear it in a solid pink colour or a more playful pattern! The perfectly cut bottoms are designed in a playful flattering way as is the top which features three middle bands that synchs your cleavage together and gives a bust lift! 

The Swimsuit/Monokini... 


The back of this swimsuit is the most impressive part unfortunately I don't have behind the scenes pics that show off the back but I will share the professional ones when I get them! 
here's a pic from their website that shows the back of the same style swimsuit in more detail!  

About the monokini: the ties at the back ensure a perfect fit! and this bikini is also reversible (2 in 1!) It features a Brazilian cut bottom which is very unique for a one piece! 

KHONGBOON SWIMWEAR is a vision of swimwear for the chic and confident woman.
The swimwear line with its custom prints, soft
 buttery fabrics, reversible designed tops & bottoms in combination with the flirty, unique designs and seamless comfort truly makes Khongboon swimwear one of a kind. These handmade bikinis are synonymous with femininity and beauty!

Thanks for stopping by! lets get summer ready!x
