In this week’s Fashion Focus post we showcase the latest Nicole Martine Beachwear Paradis Collection SS15, check it out…
Bikinis are about the most exciting thing to shop for this season. Hello, summer! We know The Socialite’s Chia Kougianos is not alone in this feeling. So from bold patterns and striking monotones to original cuts and unique shapes, we’ve handpicked our favourite key styles of the collection to get your beachwear collection well under way.
From string styles to halternecks to elegant bandeau tops there’s something for everyone in the latest Nicole Martine SS15 collection. If you’re more inclined to beat the heat there’s a great range of cool cover-ups and caftans available in bold prints or you can opt for classic black and white design.
The brand new summer collection invokes the feeling of tropical island life and long beaches and endlessly sunny days. It’s no surprise then as the SS’15 collection was inspired by one of the most perfect places of paradise – the island of Mauritius of course and its rich blend of French and Mauritian culture.
The Nicole Martine Paradis SS’15 collection was designed in South Africa and made in Mauritius. The Island of Mauritius is at the heart of the brand as the essence of Nicole Martine lies in the island’s fascinating mix of cultures, traditions and languages, colourful markets, tropical scenery and warm climate.
The summer collection also features an array of beachwear accessories from wide brim raffia sun hats to stylish monochrome and printed Caftans and even beach towels.
Want the perfect tan without having to compromise on style? Chia is no stranger to tanning and instantly fell in love with a white strapless little number that goes by the name of La Flora. “It’s sophisticated and chic, and it’s white hot for summer, what’s not to love?” she says. This also comes in a black design which is ideal as classic black swimsuits can be worn regardless of the age, era, or season trends. It’s never too early or late to wear a black bikini or swimwear. Another firm favourite was The Tamarin which is a white and black combo, minimalist in design but maximum on impact. It consists of a classic triangle style and can be paired with the noir fringe caftan in black for a Boho-inspired summer look to keep you on trend.
We were delighted to find out that Nicole Martine beachwear also supports the Coral Reef Alliance, which is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California. This initiative supports a cause that not only ensures the beauty of this planet, but also the harmony of our oceans. Upon every purchase, Nicole Martine beachwear donates a percentage of profits to the Coral Reef Alliance to aid World-wide reef management, community education around reef protection and to ensure sustainable tourism.
Not only does Nicole Martine beachwear strive to make effortlessly chic beach attire but when they not saving local fashionistas from style disasters they are working to protect our reefs. Now you can pack for the waves and get into the swim of things or get out the tanning oil with the mix-and-match swimwear while making a contribution for the greater good. We knew life is better in a caftan…
