Royal engagement dress designer dives into swim

Fashion label ISSA, who supplied the royal blue silk jersey dress to Kate Middleton for her engagement photographs, has launched a capsule swim collection of one pieces, bikinis, kaftans and jersey dresses, skirts and pants.

The pieces use the same colour palette as the ready to wear main line and the kaftans reflect the seasonal prints.

Owner and designer Daniella Helayel’s creations are inspired by her native country Brazil, where she was born and raised before studying at F.I.T in New York, and moving to London in 1999.

Helayel seeks to translate unexpected colours, natural shapes and thrill of carnivals into memorable, striking prints in ‘fantastically unique’ colour combinations.

Over the years, Issa has been embraced by a growing number of celebrity fans; including Madonna, , Laura Bailey, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Middleton, Sharon Stone, Kristen Davis, Kylie Minogue, Keira Knightley and Jennifer Lopez.
