For the past few years, I have been working as a consultant for Carizzi, a luxury swimwear brand based in London. The vision behind this brand is high end swimwear with a great fit. Sounds like a no brainer, but sadly, that is not the case. Amazing swimwear requires a well thought-through design, perfect fit, flawless pattern, and skilled construction. Carizzi has managed to achieve this all thanks to her factory in France, who also make swimwear for Hermès and Eres (pretty much the best swimwear brand in the world.)
What’s even more exciting is that her spring summer 2013 collection has a print designed by yours truly! No, I am not trying to become a print designer, but we had an idea of a bright, bold print and couldn’t find anyone to product it for us, so I had a go. The print is below, if you look closely, you can see rainbows, clouds, aces, spades, clubs, diamonds, crowns, and lightning that were inspired by some 60’s place mats I have. I’ve bought three for summer, now all I need to do is fit into them (sigh.) Shop the collection here.
