With a refined palette, both rich and subdued, LeSwim appeals to the fashion-forward woman and her resort destination wardrobe. The Resort 2014 collection marked the debut of swim and après swim, and this season LeSwim is excited to offer a capsule collection of Italian made sandals, adding to the lifestyle appeal of the brand. Most swimwear is reversible, made in Italy, using the best Italian fabric and hardware, with seamless construction, and superb fit that drapes softly on the body for a second skin feel. Separates are interchangeable, and often convertible, for a personalized look to fit each individual’s style and silhouette. Like the swimwear, the sandals are made in Italy, with the finest construction, fully lined, with hand-finished edges. They are offered in both leather and hand dyed crocodile in the same luxurious tones as the collection.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Speaking to her love of fashion and travel, LeSwim is designed by veteran designer, Adriana Caras. Known by many for her eponymous handbag & shoe lines, her collection sold at high-end retailers such as Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Maxfield and Neiman Marcus. Vogue and the Los Angeles Times named her “one to watch” while top fashion publications, including Elle, the NY Times, In Style and WWD showcased her designs. Caras has also garnered a long list of celebrity clients including Madonna, Eva Mendes, Cameron Diaz, Katie Holmes and Julianne Moore.
Having spent three years in fashion editing and styling, creating hundreds of looks for readers and clients, Caras presents LeSwim as her vision of high-end resort glamour. Inspired by iconic images of Jaqueline Onassis on the Christina O, circa 1969, Caras offers complete looks from swim to après swim for the cosmopolitan global traveller.
SPECIAL EDITION: WEARABLE ART 2016
With the mutual fascination between art and fashion growing increasingly heated, designer Adriana Caras has joined forces with Los Angeles based artist Zoe Crosher to create a line of wearable art featuring the artist’s work digitally printed on the fabric. Crosher has been included in MoMA’s 2012 New Photography Exhibition, received the prestigious Art Here and Now award by Los Angeles County Museum, and initiated the Manifest Destiny Project, a series of artist created billboards running across the Country, from Florida to California along the Interstate 10.
