I already knew Liliana Montoya Swimwear created show-stopping quality handmade swimwear but what had me extra impressed was the class and care they demonstrate with their online shopping etiquette.
Their retail interaction transforms each transaction from your standard online purchase to a truly personalised Liliana Montoya shopping experience.
Designer and owner Liliana personally hand writes a thank you note for your purchase, whilst each swimsuit is lovingly packaged into its own reusable pouch; great for holding a few beach or pool side essentials. It’s not often I want to take a flat lay of the packaging before I take out the suit and it’s these little extras that I love and appreciate about this brand!
As far as a BFF goes in our wardrobe, denim is the leader of our girl gang. We don’t own just one piece; denim jeans, shorts, skirts, jackets and shirts. If you’re like me you probably have a mountain of denim in your wardrobe and every time you wear an item, good times are guaranteed! I welcome the growing trend of denim toned swimwear to our inner girl-squad-circle of wardrobe must haves.
Don’t ask me how many denim shorts and jeans I own! And I’m sure I’m not alone on this one? Denim blue is a versatile tone and available in as many shades as you can dream of. Denim blue was made truly iconic in the 80’s and 90’s as a fashion staple with the likes of Brooke Shields and Kate Moss in Calvin Klein, Claudia Schiffer in Guess Jeans campaigns and 90’s supermodels in Levis (taken by Peter Lindbergh for the legendary January 1990 cover of Vogue UK) to name a few. With the current revival of 80’s and 90’s trends making the runway we see it evolving into the 2016-17 swimwear collections. New age fabrication technology gives you the cool denim look in a Lycra mix creating an adaptable new swimsuit colour palette to play with. This season I’m seeing the lighter blue shades of summer denim appear in Resort 2017 swimwear and what’s not to love about that?! These light to medium blues are flattering on every skin tone and i’ve picked 3 brands that have me seeing all the heart emojis ???
