Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Aloha inspired bikini by Karen Neilson

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Aloha inspired bikini by Karen Neilson

Karen Neilson’s latest summer 2010 collection said her retro range was inspired by old photographs of her mother and father at The Entrance, where they used to go on holiday as a young couple.

”My dad’s family had a beach house there. There were some great shots of them when they were young before they were married … I can remember holidaying there as a kid as well,” she said. Neilsen says she is particularly fond of the jukeboxes, milk bars and camping of the time.

”I just love that era,” she said, explaining she also drew on 1950s Hollywood icons such as Grace Kelly and the holiday resorts of Palm Springs in California.

With ruching, lace trim, pompoms, and frills – or ”little embellishments that remind me of the ’50s” as she calls them – Neilsen said she gets requests from interested older women despite her target market being aged 16 to 25.

”[It's] something that this new generation of teenagers haven’t seen, you know, so it’s all new to them, even though we may have seen it.”

Neilsen has been designing swimwear for almost 15 years. This is her second range in cotton, called ”Aloha Hearts & Flowers”.

A swimwear model once herself, Neilsen grew up in the 1970s with crochet bikinis.

”I just love swimwear, it’s just always been part of my life,” she said.

Australia’s Insight has consistently offered up solid, inexpensive, but fashion forward swimwear – different shapes and designs, and always some patterns that are interesting enough without becoming too much. (Nobody wants so many ruffles that your togs end up resembling a ballroom dancing gown.) This summer is no different.

This range includes a few one-piece numbers that are a happy medium between so fancy they can’t go into the water and Speedo racer bathers – skinny straps, ruched bodies and nice detailing. There are florals, studs, zippers and all kinds of shapes to suit different body types; from ’50s-inspired high-waist bottoms to barely there bandeau tops and pretty much everything in between.

About We are Handsome

“The idea was to create spellbinding works of art; what resulted was We Are Handsome. Born on the cusp of summer 2009, these colourful palettes of inspiration and finely shaped cuts recall the halcyonic, sun drenched days of old, of Indhra Chagoury’s big beautiful Queensland childhood, of Jeremy Jules Somers’ Big Bad Smoke.

We Are Handsome is the embodiment of Indhra and Jeremy and everyone else who has a love for the beautiful things in life. Their desire to create, design and share perfection has understandably made them a hit with the world, but We Are Handsome still remains true to their roots.

Every piece is 100% Australian designed, every thread is Australian sewn and every We Are Handsome suit is loved. We hope that you are too.”

VIDEO of Ksubi Summer 2010/11 collection, click here

Hosted in a stunning huge open space in Sydney, the Ksubi Summer 2010/11 Fashion collection was a star studded affair before the catwalk show even began. Guests formed a large circle around the catwalk and only two front rows of seats were set out. The show started with a film of static noises and an image of a man dressed in black with a black balaclava, rolling around on a white floor, reminding me of a crazy person rolling around in a mental asylumt! Ha….. Then followed an image of the same masked character showing a sequence of notes up to screen like a terrorist, reading “don’t tell me, I know I’m wrong, I always am, but why does, shit take so long…….  The models finally appeared. The collection showcased the label’s obsession with black, white and grey, stunningly simply lines and constructed designs, worn out distressed denims, oddly structured jeans, leathers, custom prints and even tailored suits.

VIDEO: A Tribute to Andy Warhol by Dom PérignonInspired by Warhol’s unconventional representation of icons, and the playful use of codes and colour in his work, Dom Pérignon commissioned the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art & Design to reinterpret its timeless bottle. The result is a unique collection of three bottles, each with its distinct label in red, blue or yellow, paying homage to Warhol’s iconic colour games. The collection will be vintage 2002 Dom Pérignon champagne.

These limited edition bottles will be available to the public starting October 15th for $150 each and can be found at fine wine purveyors nationwide. Get your bottles, they’re definitely a collector’s item!

Born in Germany to an American father and an Ethiopian mother, she attended the University of California at Berkeley, where she majored in environmental economics and policy. It was during her time in California that Eklund first realized African beachwear could be popular in the West.

Each colorful Bantu swimsuit in this year’s collection is entirely manufactured in Ethiopia, but in the future, Bantu may take its show on the road and produce collections and accessories in other African nations. Bantu’s swimsuit patterns are taken from the centuries-old West African textile industry that originated with the wax cloth in cities lsuch as Dakar, Senegal, Abidjan, and Cote d’Ivoire. The juxtaposition of colors and patterns reflects the weaver’s identity, character, and beliefs. For instance, magenta is for “good health through the hybrid of red and blue, which is both stimulating and calming,” Eklund says, and orange is for “energy and inspiration vitalized by the fiery clash between yellow and red.” By bridging the chasm between African beach culture and the West, Bantu will serve as a vehicle for economic growth in Africa—and a sexy alternative for trips to Montauk.

Even though our summer Fridays are numbered, it’s nice to know that we can act philanthropic by looking ahead to next summer’s dalliances. For an added dash of masochism, check out the Bantu-sponsored surfers—they’re guaranteed to make you feel terrible about those looming cubicle walls.

Gottex SS 2011 – About Molly Grad

October 18th, 2010 by BP | No Comments | Filed in World Fashion Week Swimwear Shows

Gottex, the iconic swimwear brand is one of, actually it is our favorite brands here at Bikini Palms. Gottex was originally established in 1956 and since it’s inception, Gottex has always been associated with Quality, Fashionable and Glamorous après wear.

Since it’s creation Gottex has been, and still remains, the key brand on retailer’s vendor matrixes. It is showcased in New York as part of New York Fashion Week, for the Spring/Summer Collections, where it is seen as a fashion leader in the Swimwear Business.

Since June 2009 Gottex has enjoyed new acclaim and a new generation of followers and critics, after ‘Head of Design’ Molly Grad joined the company.

After graduating from the prestigious design school Central Saint Martins in 2001 with a distinction in Womenswear – for which she won the L’Oreal award for Best Collection at Graduating Show, Molly has embarked on an incredible career assisting some of the best international designers within the Industry.

After successfully completing her BA degree Molly spent nearly 4 years assisting Stella McCartney as a key member of both the design ethos, and the production process.

Post this insightful period, Molly then returned to Central Saint Martins to complete her MA in Women’s Wear. It was during her MA that Molly was awarded 1st prize in the Prestigious Chloe Award by Creative director Phoebe Philo, and esteemed London fashion Critic and writer Hilary Alexander.

After graduating with her MA, with yet another Distinction, Molly moved straight into the position of Senior Consultant for YSL. She worked directly alongside Stefano Pilati: Creative Director of the international Fashion Power-House in Paris, a position she fulfilled until she was hired as senior designer at Gianfranco Ferre in Milan.

As well as coveted awards for her designs, Molly has also received great acclaim, and awards for her illustrative skills, including both the Colin Barnes and Nina De Yorke award.

For Spring / Summer 2011, Molly Grad was inspired by nature, water and sunsets. She wanted to share her inspirations, creating an upbeat and fun mis en scene in her current 2011 Spring collection. Synonymous for defining the feminine form, the curves, she gently accentuates her clothes by color, detail and the high quality of materials used. She has overcome the limitations of fabric by offering us a line with colorful textures. Molly has brilliantly used a variety of materials. We see, extravagant pieces bathing in glitter, lame’, lycra with metallic finishes and lace. The colors were equally eye-catching, bright blues, reds, corals, greens and even the use of black! There were draped straps falling on the shoulders enhancing the neckline and hips.

SUBOO – summer 2010

October 12th, 2010 by BP | No Comments | Filed in Swimwear Designers, Swimwear News

www.suboo.com

Sue Di Chio is a Sydney based Fashion designer who has inspired us to get more ‘chic’ at the beach with her whimsical fresh beach wear and stunning designer beach umbrellas!

About SUBOO: Sue Di Chio, the director of a successful fashion recruitment agency, conceived the idea for SUBOO beach accessories while scouring Sydney stores for a fashionable and functional beach umbrella. Unable to find a product that met the quality and design aesthetic she sought, she realised there was a gap in the market and went about creating the modernised version of the retro beach umbrella.

Bold signature prints in eye catching colours form the basis of the SUBOO design philosophy. SUBOO beach umbrellas are inspired by the world’s most famous beach destinations and are aptly named after these exotic locations. They feature fringe detailing, durable high quality fabrics, matching travel cases and are luxurious yet functional.

Following an extremely successful debut in 2007, SUBOO quickly established a loyal customer following and is now stocked by over 100 premimum retailers throughout Australia and New Zealand.

SUBOO beach accessories celebrate our love of summer and our obsession with the outdoors. Expect to see the bold colours of SUBOO prints dotted across Australian beaches and popping open at picnics everywhere.
