CELEBRATE  Direction File Download

A global celebration of traditional festivals inspires this fashion swimwear group from the polka dots of flamenco to thedramatic graphics of Day of the Dead from Mexico to Hawaiian lei greeting. This trend can be worked in a pretty andkitsch direction through to a post punk odyssey for the younger end of the market.

A strong graphic impact with a great sense of humour features, but with a respect of traditional celebrations. Intense color tones in solids and prints with black as a bestselling tone especially for shaping swimwear for a slimming effect. Shaping isn’t just applied to swimwear but also for increased interest in shaping beachwear for the complete look.
