Even though most of our readers are preparing for colder temperatures – the Australians are actually on the verge of summer, that time of the year when new swimwear labels come out with their first ever collection.
Today, we’re here to show you the brand new “Lisa Kelly Swimwear” label, named after the Australian designer herself – who we asked about her inspirations and motivations for creating this new swimwear label in an already very competitive Aussie market: “I grew up on the Central Coast, on the beaches before relocating to the Eastern Suburbs – I’m chasing an eternal summer! Growing up by the water, it’s inevitable that I have a passion for beautiful swimwear that has the perfect fit – so I decided to create my own. This brand is my ‘dream come true’ and is an extension of me. I understand girls want value for their money and ‘that something a little different’… that’s what my brand is about.”
Lisa Kelly Swimwear’s first season is a jewel infused colour palette, reminiscent of an ancient Tsar’s jewellery box meets a modern day party in Ibiza. Beautiful silks and fringing, “straight from a Russian fairytale meet the frenetic, wild and vibrant colours of Topaz, Fanta and Lava, straight from the Mediterranean.”
The suits just hit boutiques across Australia – and I’m pretty sure an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org might even makes these pieces available worldwide straight from the designer!
