Summer in South Africa is the season of sun, surf and pool parties. This year it’s a little different however, a socially distanced summer doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel good around the pool.

Cape Town has some of the most exquisite pool locations for summer in the city and if there’s one thing Cape Tonians know is how to look good while doing nothing! Lily Label offers swimsuit designs that are effortlessly chic, luxurious and comfortable.
