I've been having a lot of fun, working with new swimwear makers and enjoying the creative flow that happens when you work with people that just "get you".
And by "get you" I mean be really, really patient with me 🤦♀️! Because over quite a few weeks we have dyed hundreds of swatches, creating a 'watercolour' effect for this pretty floral. I just had a vision in my head and honestly, I couldn't rest until we got this right - until this idea of "Monet's Garden" was realised.
I wanted to show you a video so that you can see the amazing effect we managed to create by using a new technique which is a mixture of hand-painting and printing. We were all a bit excited when we got this final result, and it was obvious that very second that THIS would be our new floral print for swimwear.
I mean... wouldn't you get a bit squealy and excited too? Haha. High 5's all round that day!
This pretty swimsuit is SPF50 (of course) and is a new fit and style suitable for all body types. Previously, some slender girls have found they needed to downsize, but our new swimwear should be perfect for all, with a good amount of ease. I've made sizes up to 12Y in this pretty piece, plus others, which we'll share soon!
And I guess when you make a print as pretty as this, you just HAVE to create a tutu swimsuit. There's just a small amount of tulle with a generous ruffle, that will make swimming practical and easy, while still looking ballet-perfect. Sizes up to 8Y.
Our "Monet's Garden" collection of swimwear PLUS dresses, hats, jersey and more, will be available in October. More sneak peeks to come soon!
Love (and colour!),
