Grab of the Week: a sultry swimsuit from a local designer

How many cool up-and-coming swimwear designers from Toronto can you name off the top of your head? We have trouble naming even one from Canada, let alone Toronto. It’s really not that surprising, considering we are best known for clothing lines geared for the chillier months. Still, it would be nice to be able to strip down to some Canuck beachwear sometimes, would it not?

Behold Miss Jackson, a swimwear line from 27-year-old Toronto native Lisa Jackson. With her super sexy designs, we have a feeling that poolside hangs will never be the same in this city.

To celebrate the launch of her first collection, titled Lovelorn Assassin, Miss Jackson is offering 20 per cent off the first 50 orders using the code LOVELORN20.

The presale starts on Friday — we advise clearing your schedule.
