The constant drive towards fashion and style Jolidon has been expressing over the years in its collections has taken the brand to a new level in terms of swimwear & beachwear, thus creating Riviera, a new collection as part of Jolidon Swimwear 2017.
Riviera is a fashion-forward swimwear collection, very modern and detail-oriented. The finishings and creative designs proposed for this collection, combined with distinctive prints, colors and accessories, represent a reflection of the latest trends in terms of swimwear.
The high standards in quality, design and sartorial execution Jolidon has always guaranteed for its products also stand at the core of Riviera collection, using fabrics and accessories from well-renowned European suppliers.
The Riviera interpretation of prints and textures
The prints used for this collection are selectively exposed into symbolic settings, contouring an identity of their own.
For instance, the first swimwear line of this collection, Paradise City, uses a piazzato photographic print, in perfect combination with a snakeskin texture. The key-element of this line is the gold-metallic insertion used for contouring the bras of the swimsuits, adding a touch of glamour to the entire set.
Another print that really catches the eye is the one used for Nature Skin swimwear line, a floral print, very color-rich, combined with a striped segment in the same color palette. The interpretation of this fabric is very modern and somewhat flirty, mostly because of its highly saturated colors and overall tailoring.
The collection would not be complete without a fully-striped print, in a marine theme, with amazing details – in terms of both technique and decorative accessories. The striped print, used for Gran Marina swimwear line, does not seem to ever lose its elegance and marine, luxurious feel, which makes it extremely appealing to a fashion lover’s eye.
The fashion vision expressed in the Riviera collection reaches its creative peak with Duo Sentido swimwear line, that is proposed both in print and in solid color versions. The print is a combination of summerish fused-colors, “cut” with black zigzags, which perfectly embodies the transparent striped black elastics. These elastic-strap swimsuits come as a must-have addendum to any fashionista’s wardrobe, in both printed and tone-in-tone versions.
Swimwear design & technique
A special design element in the Riviera Collection, that was proposed for May Bay swimwear line, is the laser cut fabrics, in solid colors, contrasting with the color of the skin in a very seductive and fashionable way. The cuts are very graphic and quite edgy, but delicate at the same time, detail-wise.
The bustier bra is back in the spotlight, as a fashion statement, as well as the wide range of one-piece swimsuits & monokinis. Each line features a special detail, either an accessory, transparent elastic bands, decorative prints or just the shapes and stylish tailoring.
Crystal Palace swimwear line is defined, for example, by its design simplicity and the Swarovski Crystals decor, turning it into a delicate, yet glamorous line of swimsuits.
One special mention on technique is the in-house produced straps and lateral bands for Gran Marina line, which are literally glued together, resulting in flatter & thinner ones.
Throughout the collection, the beachwear pieces reinterpret the swimwear prints or line of tailoring, using easy-to-wear and extremely light fabrics, like veil and viscose.
The Riviera kaftans, beach dresses, jumpsuits and robes complete the beach outfit with a touch of elegance and an interesting fluttery feeling, perfect for the summer.
All in all, Riviera collection by Jolidon Swimwear breathes fashion and newness, elegance and sophistication. The sartorial play of the Riviera swimsuits and beachwear pieces – design and fabric wise – can only highlight the mastery of Jolidon’s creative and technological team, inspired by the European trends and fashion culture.
