Get cheeky in a swimsuit from SNRKLBR
Inspired by bold prints, cheeky bums and iconic images of Elle McPherson rocking a high-cut swimsuit, Byron Bay’s SNRKLBR makes modern swimwear with a hint of nostalgia.
While the 1980s have a lot to answer for (mullets, neon, the list goes on), there are some things we need to be grateful for, namely Vans, Queen and swimsuits that ride high above the hips creating the illusion of legs that go on for days. And unless you’ve been living in the wilderness for the past year or so, you’ll be well aware that high-cut bikini bottoms are experiencing a comeback bigger than Madonna. One Byron Bay-based company, SNRKLBR, is spearheading the trend and making cheeky cut swimwear with fun, vintage-inspired prints. Channel your inner 90s beach babe with a daring one piece or for a more classic look, don a high-waisted bikini.
SNRKLBR is the brainchild of Laura Smith and her partner Karl Barron and was born out of sheer frustration at not being able to find the perfect cut swimwear to rival her own pieces collected from op shops and the beaches of the Brazil. The pair launched from their home in Byron Bay in late 2015 and has since popped up on plenty of Instagram feeds and Stock and Supply in Coolangatta.
