One style is simply called a "Swim Slip," and in soft blue jersey it looks like just that. Deweese Designs includes a black lace bikini in their lingeYie look and borrows from the bedroom a "Karate Coat" for coverup. Another designer. Alexa. brings the Japanese "llappi Coat" to the beach. Everyone shows a version of what Catali-na dubs the "Trikini." a blushing interpretation of the bikini with a short skirt wrapped around the brief bottom. The shocker of this year's collection is the covered look. As one observer put it: "It's nice not to see so many navels for a change.
