The influential Australian brand Triangl, the one behind those neon, neoprene swimsuits, has launched a range of swimwear made from Italian velvet. This follows a trend set by US brands such as SKAYA and ZIKA.
While velvet has experienced a renaissance recently, it’s still surprising to see the wintry, opulent fabric on the beach. But it works, and it’s lined with spandex.
The swimsuits are reminiscent of the ’90s; they come in bright colours such as tangerine and lilac and are high-cut. The collection includes the Jarah swimsuit with cut-out sides (and middles) and the Torri full piece, which has a low back and a retro look.
