French shapewear brand Scandale has announced the launch of its first swimwear range, titled Les Aquatiques, for the SS13 season.
The new shaping swimwear collection draws on the latest textile technology, using Capri from Italian fabric supplier Carvico.
The fabric integrates LYCRA® BEAUTY fabric for swimwear with XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber to provide effective shaping and all-over body control. It also incorporates chlorine and lotion resistant properties, and an in-built ultraviolet protection
The show piece of the range is Mirage, a one piece featuring a bold palette of red, black onyx, deep lagoon and a subtle, smoked quartz.
Piped contour lines elongate the body with delicate ruching, extending down either side of the torso to define the waist, while removable shoulder straps offer a versatility of wear. A longer body and retro low-cut provide full coverage, while helping to define a desirable ‘S’ curve silhouette.
The new collection carries Scandale’s unique, signature details – a flash of red under the straps and the hidden message ‘C’est un Scandale,’ which is printed on the elastic and sewn into every piece.
