Almost architectural, this bottom has been one of our favorite pieces, well, since we first fell in love with lingerie. Araks' classic almost-shorty bikini is an exercise in pared-down simplicity. Sweet simple cotton, pintucked at the bum for effortless shaping, meets a band of washed silk accented at hips and down the back. The nap of the cotton and the smooth of the silk plays like matte and semi-gloss, the perfect contrast of details.
Hand wash in lukewarm water with an extra-gentle lingerie wash; gently squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry
