I remember when I was on the cover of Express Magazine back in December of 2014. In the interview I spoke about one of my plans for the future of possibly starting my own swimwear line. It wasn’t anything written in stone, but was just an idea I had. Finally, after a few months I decided to start the project, the first piece of the collection is a flesh colored swim brief . I drew inspiration from the idea of playing with sand colors and the playfulness and sexiness of the illusion of being “au naturel”, which is the name of this brief. The flesh colored items in clothing and shoes have been present in fashion in the last seasons but never in swimwear for obvious reasons. Those reasons were the motivation that inspired me to take this direction.
The design is a classic brief, not too small and not too big, just the classic speedo cut for men that are… let’s say, courageous, to wear a snug piece of swimwear. I’m very proud to say that the manufacturing process of the swimwear is 100% Made In Aruba, which will give an exotic appeal to my future costumers from abroad.
This is a very exciting project that I’m happy to share with you for the first time. If you are interested in this piece feel free to contact me leaving a message here or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be available this summer.
