Aussie swimwear label We Are Handsome have just released a Limited Edition Collection for Spring/Summer 2010.11, photographed by Sebastian Kriete with model Laura Midalia on a rooftop in Potts Point Sydney titled Next Summer Lovin’.
The 10 hand-designed prints will come in six timeless cuts: low scoop back one piece, strapless/ convertible one piece, short sleeve low back bodysuit, zip front sleeveless bodysuit, string bikini and men\’s trunk.
The latest collaboration between designers Indhra Chagoury (Oscar & Elvis) and Jeremy J Somers (People Like Us) is inspired by the elegant adventurism of the 1970\’s, 80\’s and 90\’s fusing striking, edgy retro designs with timelessly sexy and sophisticated shapes.
We Are Handsome charged into the market place last season continuing their steep ascent of cult status now boasting a growing following of celebrities including Katy Perry, Jessica Biel, M.I.A., Tyra Banks, Catherine McNeil, Ruby Rose and April Rose Pengilly.
The two designers say about their new collection:
“It\’s about taking you to the origin of the image, expressing a love of fun and passion,” says Somers.
Adds Chagoury, “You can\’t help but be captured by the prints and their bold beauty. Each design making you feel like a masterpiece. Handsome, in fact.”
Enjoy this behind the scenes video:
After selling out within weeks at some of Australia\’s top boutiques, this Summer We Are Handsome will be found adorning the shelves of internationally renowned retailers Opening Ceremony (USA), Department Quartier 206 (Berlin), Aritzia (Canada) and haute e-tailer YOOX.com, with incoming requests from top boutiques from Dubai to Los Angeles.
This is brilliant success for these two designers and I look forward to seeing their 2011 Collection that will be dropping in-stores later this year.
