We have long been awaiting the arrival of the gorgeous Resort swimwear from Araks, which is all hand made with love in NYC. We have carried her lingerie collection from the very beginning, since our opening in 2005, and her brief foray into swimwear many years ago was also our first small offering in that department, which has since grown to include the designs of Malia Mills, Iodus, Princesse Tam Tam, Huit, Eberjey, Cheap Monday, and more. I even recognize a few signature silhouettes from that collection of yesteryear, but she has really outdone herself this time around. Always a genius with color palettes, she has introduced bold shades and combinations we rarely see in swimwear that manage to be colorful, but not tacky or touristy, as so many bathing suits can be. The graphic, geometric shapes and beautiful seaming details enhance the high-end effect that the smart color choices already contribute to, and we are left with garments that will stop people in their tracks on the beach. Invest in one of these splurge-worthy pieces for your upcoming holiday trip, but only if you’re prepared to be asked over and over again where you got your fabulous suit!
