It’s also a garment charged with emotions and expectations.
The swimsuit brings to life dear memories of childhood and long dreamy days at sea, of sand on sun-kissed skin and the bliss of an endless summer. Patti Smith has been truly brave and is very inspiring in many ways, she received the Polar Music Prize a few years ago and her emotional openness was fantastic. Inspired and slightly overexcited as we just opened our Pop Upstore and I'm finishing my design for summer 2016. You´ll never regret the things you did, only the things you you did not do. In every Icelandic town you have at least one swimming pool with natural geothermal water.
It deeply influences the life of this city, haping and surrounding it with thousands of different colors and textures.
Only to discover, that I started filling my pockets with trash instead of treasure. In making artistic sculptures out of the objects I find, I try to evoke an emotional response from my audience by creating a contradiction.
A clash between initial aesthetic attraction and after a second look : repulsion and the realisation of the tragedy trash causes.
Aqua Alta designed by Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto includes a series of objects strongly linked to the theme.
These can be summarized in a series of textiles (fabrics), a carpet, a series of fragrances correlated with diffuser, and a table lamp.
Our beaches are covered in plastic confetti and there really is nothing to celebrate.
Words by Lysbeth Bijlstra thirza schaap's instagram ”Not only is the swimsuit the single piece of clothing in which a woman reveals herself almost bare in public.
For me as a designer, it is the ultimate privilege to create swimwear that honors the strength of a confident woman, empowering her with stylish cuts and quality fabrics to truly make her comfortable” Paula Malm Berner. The newly invented Float design is an addition to the Icelandic bathing culture.
Paula is a Stockholm-based fashion designer and entrepreneur, educated at the Parsons School of Design in New York. Designer Unnur Valdís - an Icelandic mermaid and a wellbeing specialist, designed this product to add a new dimension to the water and bathing culture.
It also carries the greatest hopes for the perfect holiday. All the women who dare to take the fight with pompous men and also the consequences of it in our supposively equal society ( Sweden ). Outdoor swimming is a daily sport and it does not matter if you have rain, snowstorm or frost - Icelanders go to their swimming pools.
