As Christmas fast approaches - in two days to be exact - we begin to wrap up our holiday must-have pieces with international swimwear line BANG! Inspired by rock music and rock icons, design duo Nell Robinson, lingerie and swimsuit model, and London fashion buyer Ann Marie Clarke officially launched BANG! in summer 2013 . The line is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the swimwear business.
Their debut collection is definitely, as I would say, for the bold and the beautiful. Setting new trends for swimwear, it defines a new direction; more edgy with rich and unconventional swimwear fabrics such as distressed denim, textured fabrics and handmade prints. The collection has great global appeal and can be worn to the beach or to a luxurious beach party. For the ladies buying all their swimwear for the Christmas beach parties, BANG! Swimwear is the perfect collection for you to shop to get your pieces, especially if you want to stand out from the rest. There is a perfect balance between rock and roll and lingerie in their collections, which also stand apart from all the other traditional swimwear lines out there.
The Spring/Summer 2014 collection is edgy, chic and bold. The collection is definitely for a confident yet stylish woman. Filled with bold neon colours and wild animal prints, this collection is right on trend for resort season 2014 and has that great contrast between their Jamaican roots and the European edge from London, where all their swimsuits are manufactured. Another great feature to the line are the original prints and reversible styles, along with unique design elements such as zamak metal beads seen on the florescent pink Beat Box bikini. The zamak beads have a special coating, which doesn't get hot or rust and allows you to wear the bikini without discomfort if tanning all day or lazing in the water.
Seen on such celebrities like Rihanna, and featured in Grazia magazine and the upcoming issue of Condé Nast Traveller January 2014, BANG! Swimwear will be the swimwear line to watch out for in 2014, as they are slowly dominating the market in the Caribbean and in London.
You can purchase your pieces from www.bangswimwear.com or www.notjustalabel.com, which is a leading designer platform for contemporary fashion.
You can also purchase BANG! Swimwear in Jamaica at Foot Candy located at 8 Hillcrest Ave. The holidays are upon us and you want to get all your swimwear for those beach parties or beach-going weekends coming up soon.
