A mash-up of NYC graffiti and the elegantly seductive lines of women's swimsuits, Graffini brings an edgy vibe to beachwear. Available in five different cuts—from a skimpy Brazilian string bikini to a classic one-piece—each sport a different set of vivid images.

Designers use photographs of street art from walls, signs and even ATMs, taken in locations that include Chinatown, Soho and the Bronx, incorporating the images into the various suit cuts. We like the skull-adorned ATM (above left), Old School (middle) and Union Square (right). These walking testaments to the character and history of New York are sure to catch eyes and turn heads all summer long.

Graffinis range in price from about $140 to $180 depending on cut and print, and sell on their site.
