Haven't picked a swimsuit for this summer yet? Don't worry, because the Caffe Swimwear runway show from Miami Fashion Week should leave you with plenty of ideas.

The past few months have really horrible for Giles Deacon. I mean, who would want to lounge around exclusive pools in L.A. observing beautiful women and end the day calling that a hard day's work? Well that's exactly what lucky Deacon has been up to recently, as he prepared for the launch of his new swimwear line at New Look, which launches today.
"It was all designed while on a research trip to Los Angeles - by the pool at the Chateau Marmont," Deacon told Vogue.com. "For me it's not so much Eighties-inspired but more a mix of clean lines and graphic boldness with a touch of playfulness."
Designer Charlotte Ronson has been getting more than the expected share of tabloid press lately (namely, due to the teensy incident of disallowing Lindsay Lohan into her JC Penney party), but surely that buzz can only help her swimwear line. Collaborating with longtime friend Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, she's launched a collection of bathing suits and bikinis called Shoshanna Made With Love Charlotte Ronson.
Pieces sell for $60 to $140 in the US, at Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue, but Shopbop.com sell internationally. You can shop the collection after the jump.
