NYC-based clothing designer Matthew Zink looks to the carefree 1970s and 1980s for inspiration in creating Charlie by Matthew Zink, his sexy brand of luxury swimwear for men and women. Touting his line as “the seduction of the perfect bikini," Zink serves up a delicious collection of triangle string and bandeau bikinis, daring monokinis, ruched swimsuits, and silky resort dresses and maxi dresses in bold tropical or animal prints. Men’s designs include leopard print briefs, tropical print soccer shorts, and classic drawstring sweatpants perfect for serious poolside lounging.
