Curvy Kate is expanding its range of swimwear for the SS13 season.
The brand has added several bikini shapes including a halter neck, a moulded cup based on the highly popular Smoothie bra and a three-part cup in balconette style.
To accompany the collection is a range of mix and match briefs, available in a high-rise fold down brief, flattering side ruche briefs, smoothing short and ‘cute’ tie side.
The line features the shades of scarlet and vibrant lagoon blue, along with a key ditsy poppy print, a nautical red and white stripe and a pin-up vintage polka dot. Patterned pieces and block colour items have been specifically designed to mix and match seamlessly.
Key Shapes/Styles SS13:
The ‘Pebble’ is a four-part range which takes the fit and shape from two of Curvy Kate’s best-selling bras. There is a moulded cup bikini, based on the best-selling ‘Smoothie,’ and a three-part seamed balcony bikini top, based on the popular ‘Daily Boost’ bra. Accompanying the fashion inspired tops are high rise shorts with ruched side seams and a tie-side brief. The printed fabric has vintage-inspired fresh white and sea-blue polka dots on a navy base, all on a soft Polyamide/Elastane mix.
Moonlight features a black base, trimmed with a soft steel grey for a ‘subtle’ finish. The bikini is available in a balcony style, a classic vintage-style halter neck or a tankini style. The design is finished off with a grey bow.
The ‘Horizon’ set seamlessly pairs a pin-up and nautical influence for a touch of 50’s cool. The scarlet base is patterned with bold white stripes for a simple and classic, yet striking look. Tie-side style briefs, which are designed to flatter curvy hips and thighs, are joined by a versatile high-rise brief that can be folded down for a flirty effect or worn up for a high-waisted style. Available tops include a halter-neck style or a supportive balcony.
For those who like a classic style but yearn for a splash of colour, Curvy Kate’s ‘Paradise’ style is designed to combine the best of both worlds. Eye-catching scarlet and lagoon blue shades are designed to mix and match effortlessly with the rest of the collection.
Hitting the front cover of the new season brochure is Curvy Kate’s first ever floral swimwear collection. The Flirt features a ditsy poppy print, piping and ’cute’ frills. Available in both halterneck and balcony styles, the collection gives a choice of styles up to a K cup. The Flirt can be coordinated with either a tie-side brief with ruffles on the back or a fuller brief with a delicate skirted frill.
