Prints — Just in Time for Spring!

Monday, March 11th, 2013

The bold and the beautiful– we are having a full on print obsession, and we’re just as impressed with Mara Hoffman’s swimwear line as we were her ready to wear. The same tribal prints that balance modernity and tradition perfectly, and the kind of color palettes designers dreeeam of! Juxtaposition of brights and darks, and subtle pairings of more muted tones. Pure artistry.

And since we’re not the type to leave anyone out, here are a few other prints you might fall in love with upon seeing if you’re not so into the native feel of Mara.

I know we’re talkin’ prints here, but come on. Aside from the just-in-time-and-perfect-for-spring print, this Razzle Dazzle Jumper by Pily Q is straight up astounding.

Also, we can’t ever resist watercolored stripes– Mozambique Bikini by VIX

AND, periwinkle is totally the new black as seen here, here and above (Naomi by VIX). Plus we’re thinking no one else can resist the hand beading and abstract print on the Zambia bikini by VIX (right).

We Solemnly Swear to Wear More Prints!

Friday, December 28th, 2012

When it comes to getting dressed for any occasion– from your daily uniform to reaching for a bikini for the beach, it’s always convenient to go with classic black– chic, flattering and effortless. But with all the amazing prints we’ve been seing this season, we’re hereby making a commitment to prints!

Agua Bendita Swimwear has some of the most amazing printed bikinis, and each one is unique in every way. Their nautical inspired print takes on a more vintage tone but paired with sexy architectural cutouts. The cowboys & indians feel of their native american print is modern and fresh in lieu of the common native pattern, and the  mini rosettes on the skirted Aventurero suit proves to be the perfect combination of flirty and feminine.

Equally exciting is the return of the Aloha print, and let’s face it, a pink aloha print is even better. Which is why we were over the moon to see these hawaiian inspired prints from Acacia and Mikoh pop up in Molly Brown’s signature pink.

Ecclectic, Fantastic and Out of This World!

Monday, May 14th, 2012

We’ve always been entranced by the way Maaji Swimwear matches up such seemingly contrasting patterns with such ease. The result is wonderfully whimsical and evokes an underwater dreamland. Which is exactly where we feel like we live when wearing Maaji, and we LOVE it! Marrying quality swimwear fabrics with an eye for unique design, the Maaji spring/summer collection is both breath-taking and eye-catching!

With the scuba-inspired trends hitting runways and stores and streets all around the world, there’s no reason for the industry from which it originated to miss out, and Maaji does neoprene with major style.

An Unexpected Print.

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Every year we’re on the look out for what the swimwear season’s “it” color will be. This year it seems like pale blues and poppy apricot and citrus shades are taking the cake, but some pretty amazing prints have surfaced, not to mention unique, and are sure to become major statement pieces. Also still on point with the summer brights trend!

From left to right: Preppy Guatemala by DESPI & Artisan Flirt and Candy by VITAMIN A

The geometric print on this Despi bikini is a punchy contrast to its feminine ruffled edges and the Artisan dye on the Vitamin A is is simply gorgeous. When thinking of prints, we normally envision one all-over, so the dye on this suit was distinct and immediately eye-catching!

The salmon-colored fish-scaled suit by Odabash is a refreshing take on animal print. Tired of the ol’ leopard or serpent? Who knew fish scales could be so sophisticated? (Also comes in a pretty violet)! The landscape print on the Salinas suit is so unique, none of them are even alike! Each sandy beach design on every suit is cut individually, so what you get is truly one of a kind.
