Lingerie Insight: How would you describe your first swimwear collection?
Sinead Ray Mitchard: The Ibiza collection is inspired by the party isle itself, with bold and exciting prints sat alongside cool denim effects and flirty cut-out shapes. The range is made for the ultimate chic poolside look.

LI: Who are your target customers?

SM: The Tahlulah Ray girl is young at heart and confident in herself. She’s a social butterfly with a keen interest in fashion and travel.

LI: What inspires you when designing swimwear?
SM: I have the craziest imagination and creative flair, which can sometimes be difficult to control and turn into a reality. I can be inspired by the tiniest splash of colour, hint of texture, or an entirely random object. I tend to design around themes or atmospheres, cultures and travels, hence the new Ibiza collection.
