Bang! Swimwear debuts for S/S 2014
Bang! Swimwear is an uber-glam label co-launched by supermodel Nell Robinson and fashion buyer Ann Marie Clarke. The debut collection defines a new direction for swimwear with its unique prints and Caribbean edge – bound for triumph amongst sophisticated sun-worshippers.
Influences of British rock music, alongside the design duo’s Jamaican roots, are strongly demonstrated through the use of distressed denim, textured fabrics and handmade prints. Released in time to update your holiday wardrobe, the range appears set for global success, having already been spotted on the likes of Rihanna and Cara Delevingne.
The sizzling swimwear range sees every exuberant shade in the colour spectrum applied to versatile pieces that can take the wearer from daytime chic to luxurious evening. Fluorescent blue and pink, stars, stripes and leopard print adorn bikinis in classic triangle and 70s shapes, with matching briefs and hipster shorts, as well as tasteful one-pieces. Designed to flatter every body type, the timeless styles have been given music-related names such as Saxophone, Beatbox, Amplifier and Percussion.
Unique design elements, such as zamak metal beads, have been incorporated in the striking, florescent pink Beatbox bikini. These beads have a special coating which doesn’t get hot or rust, allowing you to wear the bikini for long lengths of time with no discomfort – ideal for relaxing days on the sun-lounger!
The Bang! reversible styles are an effortless must-have. Available in tantalising animal and American flag prints, as well as neon lime, pink and blue, each with contrast trims, can be worn either side or mixed and matched. Meticulously created, each tie utilises silver beaded tips for a lavish feel. The stylish washed denim one-piece proves to be another clear winner with its use of rich and unconventional fabrics. This asymmetric body features black wet-look panels and leather laced corset detailing, to create an urbane swimsuit perfect for the refined woman.
There is an exemplary balance between rock and roll and lingerie in the Bang! spring/summer 2014 collection, which allows it to stand apart from other traditional swimwear lines. Acquire one of these edgy beachwear sets in preparation for the resort season and let your catwalk unfold across golden sands.
