Red Carter 2006 Swimwear Collection.
The celebrated “Dashiki” print makes a bold come-back emblazoned on itsy-bitsy bikini’s paired with “skirted hipster bottoms.” Despite the cool, kitsch flavour of the collection, the head wraps were a little old, lacking sex appeal and the Missoni-esque prints were a bit disappointing in their execution.
