LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWIMINISTA sets the standard for sustainable luxury in next-generation swimwear design with innovative styles that beautifully solve some of the biggest real-world swimsuit problems. Founder Andréa Bernholtz spent years researching what women truly want in terms of fit and support, engineering every design element to create the world’s first problem solving swim brand. After introducing a string of innovative collaborations with some of today’s most iconic couturiers, the brand now reveals exciting plans for 2023.
Having expanded their line into Australia for a truly endless summer, Bernholtz and her design team has recently debuted a menswear collection featuring original prints by Australian artist, James Peter Henry, in luxury recycled fabrics and sophisticated fits for which the brand is known. While brands across the industry continue to raise prices, SWIMINISTA is making waves by lowering theirs to show appreciation to their customers.
In spring 2023 SWIMINISTA will launch a capsule collection showcasing additional original prints by the House of Christian Lacroix, James Peter Henry, and more. Bernholtz ensures that giving back remains part of SWIMINISTA’s foundational DNA with an All Pink Capsule Collection that always gives back to Breast Cancer Awareness (not just in October). The pink swimsuits feature best-selling styles in signature fuschia, with a portion of proceeds donated to THE Breast Cancer Foundation’s “BCF Cares.” Sales from a special JPH Pink collection by James Peter Henry also go toward supporting the foundation’s mission to care for newly diagnosed patients and empower them on their journey.
SWIMINISTA will also debut 15+ new retail partnerships in the coming year, including boutiques at:
- Four Seasons Resort & Residences - Fort Lauderdale, FL
