Canadian designer Tanya Taylor has launched her first swimwear collection with Summersalt, a direct-to-consumer sustainable brand. The limited edition Brushstrokes capsule blends the label’s signature hand-painted prints with Summersalt’s classic silhouettes. The suits, which range from size 2 to 22, are produced using the brand’s compressive fabric made with 78 percent recycled polyamide – think recycled plastics, post-consumer materials and nylon waste.
“It has been a goal of mine to bring our colourful confidence and high energy happiness to swimwear for a long time,” says Taylor. “It can be an overwhelming and vulnerable experience for many women to bare their bodies and I wanted to work with Summersalt because their dedication to quality and fit make women feel their best.”
The capsule includes five swimsuits and one wrap skirt with bow and belt details. A new shape, a wrapped one piece, was created exclusively for the collaboration. All the pieces feature a confetti floral print from Taylor’s spring 2020 collection in a vibrant palette inspired by the diversity and confidence of Miami women.
“While this summer is poised to look different from summers’ past, we know our customers can enjoy this collection as they explore their own backyards, from pools, to lakes, to the fire escape,” says Summersalt co-founder Reshma Chamberlin.
