For those of you wanting to channel Taylor Swift’s enviably retro beach style, get excited: Kate Spade New York, the brand synonymous with all things girly and glamorous, is launching a 70-piece swimwear collection, featuring bustier bandeaus topped off with bows, high-waisted bottoms, cover-ups and bralettes.
“This is such a fun opportunity to bring glamour back to the beach,” Kate Spade’s president and chief creative officer Deborah Lloyd tells WWD. “I am constantly inspired by the glamour that women brought to the beach in the Fifties and Sixties.”
The collection, featuring 52 mix-and-match separates, 12 one-pieces and some cover-ups, will have a soft unveiling in August at Miami Swim Week before being presented in New York in early August. Retailing from $120 to $200, the collection will then hit stores in November.
I’m certain the collection will be packed with ladylike prints and retro silhouettes—but we’ll have to wait until August to know for sure!
