The must-have bikinis this summer 

These Piha & Moontide styles were a standout on last year's Remix trip to Vanuatu.

In October the team travelled to the friendliest collection of islands in the world, Vanuatu, to shoot the Summer fashion editorial. Bound for the tropics, they naturally took an array of colourful bikinis and swimsuits from proudly homegrown swimwear labels, Piha and Moontide. The colourful styles ventured everywhere with the team, from poolside to seaside and everywhere in between.

From festivals to far-flung beaches, the beauty of Piha & Moontide swimwear lies in their ability to fit into multiple scenarios, beach-side or not!
