With our end-of-season Designer Swimwear Sale on right now, it’s been hard to take our minds away from all the incredible designer swimsuits we have for such a great price. And while I’d love to feature one of the beautiful new swimsuits from the 2009 range of Sauvage and Beach Bunny that’s recently arrived here at Azura, I still just can’t go past our 2008 swimwear collection…
It’s been all about Sauvage Swimwear these last couple of weeks here at Bikini of the Week, and this week is no different with the stunning Jade Mountain bikini, our pick of the week.
I love the simplicity of this swimsuit; it’s simply striking. First off, there’s the color - a mix of turquoise and emerald green, the swimsuit looks like a jewel itself. You can tell why this swimsuit doesn’t have any intricate or extravagant detailing - it doesn’t need it. The color alone is enough to grab and hold your attention.
But, speaking of detailing, the large rings made of distressed gold are the perfect match for both the cut and color of this bikini. The gold sets off the green to a tee, again like a gold ring encasing an emerald jewel, while the ring shape gives the swimsuit a bit more interest, showing off just a hint of flesh at the center bust and at the bikini bottom sides.
Ring detailing works amazingly with bandeau cut bikinis. This year’s hottest swimwear designers definitely thought so with the style featuring heavily throughout the different designer swimwear collections. Sauvage Swimwear’s rendition with the Jade Mountain was perhaps one of the best versions, the rings not too large as well as being shaped at the bikini bottom sides to fit the curve of the body which is particularly important when it comes to comfort.
The bandeau bikini top also has a point of difference, tapering in at the back so the look is slim and dainty. The sides are also lined with boning for extra support, which can be incredibly handy with bandeau style bikinis. As for the bikini bottoms, these will give you full backside coverage as well as full coverage at the front.
Like all our 2008 swimsuits, Jade Mountain by Sauvage is currently 25% off as part of our Designer Swimwear Sale. It’s a beautiful swimsuit and also timeless too, so don’t miss out…
We’re going back to back Sauvage Swimwear here at Bikini of the Week. But while last week saw us look at one of last year’s quiet achievers, the sexy black bikini Chains, this week we’re looking at a hot new swimsuit number from the 2009 Sauvage Swimwear range, Chocolate Suede.
Chocolate Suede: the name alone is sexy. But it’s the sight of this bikini that will truly have you drooling. Similarly to Chains, Chocolate Suede comes decked in metal detailing, but here the look is hot and heavy with thick, gold link chains. Luckily, the quality of the detailing, as with all Sauvage swimsuits, is premium, so while the chains are durable and sturdy, they’re also lightweight and comfortable - a must for any bikini. In fact, the detailing on the bikini bottoms also includes an additional piece of material, added for comfort and support.
For me, the gold link chain detailing spells sophistication - with a touch of rock ‘n’ roll flair! Beach Bunny Swimwear is very good at this look, but with Chocolate Suede, Sauvage Swimwear is certainly giving them a run for their swimsuit money! This season, we’re going to be seeing a lot of chocolate browns - not just from Sauvage, but from all the major boutique designer swimwear labels. The Chocolate Suede by Sauvage however, would have to be the quintessential example. I might have said this simply because I love the Sauvage version. However, having already seen many, if not all, of the other designer swimwear collections, I mean it definitively.
More than a chocolate brown, the Chocolate Suede is toned and textured, giving the bikini fabric character and body. Also, at a distance, the visual appeal of the bikini is different to what it is up close, again adding character and unique charm to the swimsuit.
Another added benefit of the brown bikini is its ability to look clean longer and its difficulty to stain. I for one tend to dirty my clothes easily and while I’m an absolute fan of white bikinis, it’s refreshing not to have to worry about it so much.
The Chocolate Suede bikini by Sauavge comes in a halter style top that includes removable pads for extra support and string ties at the neck and back. The pads are useful also for a more flattering look at the bust. The bikini bottoms are low rise at the front, but provide moderate coverage at the front. Personally, I love the degree of coverage you’ll find in most Sauvage bikinis - not too little, but also, not too much.
Chocolate Suede is pretty much hot off the factory floor, as are all the new designer swimsuits by Sauvage. But whether you’re after a beautiful number from last year’s swimwear season, or ready for something new from this year’s range, Sauvage is always a safe yet seriously stunning option.
We’ve had a stellar year here at Azura Swimwear and with our one year anniversary soon approaching, we thought what better reason to celebrate!
The plans have not yet been finalized, but as our valued customers, our one year birthday is as much about you as it is about us… if not more! So we’ll definitely be sharing the festivities with you, including an exclusive designer swimwear sale for Azura Swimwear Privileges Club Members, plus much more.
As we come to the end of the year, it’s a great time to reflect on the year that’s just past and also, a time to share feelings of good will. Azura Swimwear would not be what it is without you and it has been a rare treat to share a love of women’s designer swimwear with people from all around the world. Bikinis are beautiful, there is no doubt about it, but a designer swimsuit would be nothing without the people who love them.
So from all of us here at the team at Azura Swimwear, we send you and your family warm pre-Christmas wishes…
Until then, make sure to take advantage of our designer swimwear sale on now - it’s a great time to pick up Christmas presents or treat yourself to that designer swimsuit you’ve been eying off all year - it is Christmas after all! All our 2008 women’s swimsuits are 25% off, which is a phenomenal saving… a little pre-Christmas treat for us all!
It’s been a while since we featured a Bikini of the Week - what with purchasing our 2009 designer swimwear range, introducing new swimwear designers to our collection and, not to mention, managing our designer swimwear sale, we haven’t had time for much else. But with all the beautiful swimsuits in front of us, we thought it was about time we shared some of our favorites here at Azura Swimwear, before our swimsuit favorite list got out of control once again!
Thinking of our designer swimwear sale (all our 2008 designer swimsuits are 25% off!) in particular, I began to think about all the incredible swimsuits you could pick up at such great prices. I for one am an absolute sucker for a sale - what’s not to like? It’s your favorite swimsuit but at a lower price. And from there I immediately thought of one swimsuit - a stunning black bikini by Sauvage Swimwear called Chains - the swimsuit I have had my eye on all season.
It’s a quiet achiever this swimsuit - it doesn’t scream for your attention, but it certainly attracts it. And there’s nothing like a black bikini to add to your collection - they are so versatile and will last for more than one season. Chains by Sauvage Swimwear in particular is a black bikini that will slide seamlessly into your repertoire - it is simple, but with an appealing point of difference. The look is relaxed elegance (perfect for the beach), with a hint of sexy style added through the metallic bauble string detailing at the sides and top (take it poolside too).
The cut of this swimsuit too makes it something to write home about. The bikini top, halter in style, makes it a great choice if you’re looking for good support or shape, while the bikini bottoms have both full backside coverage and wide coverage at the front. It’s a designer swimsuit that you can move around in and be active, but still looks sexy - a mix that’s hard to find in a bikini. And, it’s comfortable - the chain detailing is lined so there no digging in or slipping.
At full price, the Chains by Sauvage Swimwear is a swimsuit hard to pass by - it’s beautiful, practical and versatile. But at 25% off, it seems ridiculous not to, the price just too hard to beat for such a quality swimsuit. And really, you can never have too many black bikinis in your collection!
But until next time, we hope you enjoy our new 2009 designer swimwear range (there’s some great new pieces from Sauvage Swimwear as well as Nicolita soon to arrive) as well as our designer swimwear sale.
This is the first time Azura Swimwear will have stocked Nicolita swimwear, as well as being the first new designer swimwear range that we have introduced since we launched early this year. So undoubtedly, this is an exciting time for us here! We’ve had our eye on Nicolita for some time now, but when we caught up with the Nicolita girls after this year’s designer swimwear tradeshows and saw their incredible 2009 swimwear range, we just couldn’t pass up the offer to sell them here at Azura Swimwear.
We’ll be going through the 2009 Nicolita swimwear range with you step-by-step (I, for one, want to savour the opportunity to wax poetic over their gorgeous designer swimsuits!) when they arrive. But for a quick look and for those who aren’t familiar with this incredible designer swimwear label, Nicolita Swimwear harks from California, USA and is the creation of talented swimwear designer Nicole Sainz. Sainz’s heritage, a mix of Cuban-American, is all to clear in her latin-infused swimwear range with designer swimsuits that are incredibly sexy, yet oh so womanly - in only the way the Latinas and Mediterraneans can do it! Even the bikini names are exotic with inspiring names like Limonada, Tuscan Treat and Ciao Bella… certainly paints a vivid and beautiful picture doesn’t it!
We take the greatest care in selecting which designer swimwear labels make it into our store and with Nicolita, we have no doubt that she’ll be right at home here at Azura. The 2009 Nicolita Swimwear range will be arriving at Azura Swimwear shortly, so make sure to stay tuned. Of course, if you’re a subscriber, we’ll be sending you an email as soon as they get in. If you’re not a subscriber, but would like to join our mailing list, simply click here and fill in your details.
Until then, we wait as patiently as you for the sexy Nicolita to arrive… Not long now!
