New Plus-Size Swim Line: Skye+

After months research and countless days of hard work on the design floor, we are excited to finally announce the launch of our new plus-size swim line, Skye+. Woohoo!

Skye+ was created from the knowledge that beauty is everywhere, and not just a narrow measure of things reduced to one size or way of seeing the world. As such, this fabulous new line was designed with the care we always take to construct swimsuits with the most flattering and comfortable fits, using materials that look good and feel great on.

Our first collection includes bikinis, underwire tops, one-pieces, tankinis and coverups all inspired by the latest trends in high-fashion and beach style. Sizes range from 0X to 2X.

Summer Trend Report: Radical Botanical

Since before anyone can remember, flowers have symbolized beaufy and life. Buds and blooms are nature's gift to the eye, and floral prints have symbolized delicate femininity in fashion for hundreds of years. Although flower patterns as a whole are timeless, artists and designers today are finding new, beautiful ways to adapt botanicals to our modern style sensibilities.

From typography to high fashion, flower prints are the eye-popping print this summer in swim and resortwear. Our Eden floral swimwear collection was inspired by the botanical current in the design world, and has proved to be one of this season's strongest prints.

Trend Report: Popping Pomegranate

This season is all about color, and what could be hotter than an eye-popping pomegranate red? Found in art, interior design, beauty and fashion, red will always be all the rage. Looking to create a unique red color that was both classic and contemporary, our design team engineered our very own signature red under the Pomegranate banner.

Classic chic for resort season

Resort season is always a great time to bridge the gap between summer style and winter colors, and what better to celebrate an upcoming sojourn down south than to put together a perfectly sophisticated swim outfit for your upcoming trip?

Looking to complete this year’s swimsuit collection using the chicest of chic combination of black and white, the designers at Skye Swimwear created the Classic collection of bandeaus, underwire tops and a variety of other swimsuits cuts and styles designed especially for resort season.

These two anti-colors are quite arguably fashion and design’s sweetheart tones, and there was no shortage of inspiration from art, packaging design, and high fashion when the initial moodboards for the Classic collection were being put together.

Nautical-chic for Resort 2015

It’s safe to say that most of us have, at least at some point in time, wanted to dress like a sailor. Thankfully, nowadays you don’t have to spend 4 months below deck sucking on limes to avoid scurvy to look as cute as Seaman’s Apprentice.

Fleet week style envy is nothing new. From Jackie O.’s smart little navy skirt suits paired with her signature head scarf, to the runway shows of Jean-Paul Gaultier, naval-inspired fashion has been around since, well, the navy itself (or fashion itself, whichever came first).

The white and blue of the navy can also carry over to more leisurely activities of course. Yachting, sailing, or even a little spin on a speedboat can be a great excuse to don the navy blue and white stripes that make everything look oh so fresh and so clean.

That’s why this season the designers at Skye introduced the Realm collection, our modern interpretation of classic nautical fashion using a blue denim textured stripe instead of the traditional solid one. With a variety of cuts and styles from bandeaus and triangle tops to skimpier tie-side bottoms and full-coverage panty styles, the Realm collection offers something for every sailor out there, even you.

Mediterranean blue trend report

Every season, the design team at Skye Swimwear introduces a new palette of solid colors that will stand alone in our 'So Soft" collection or that can be mixed-and-matched with our various prints. This year, one of the colors of choice is our signature Mediterranean Blue, a rich deep blue reminiscent of the walls of Chefchaouen, Morocco and the pottery of Portugal. It's a color that can see in the deepest blues of the ocean and the translucence of nature's precious gems, and that has been captured in the indigos of textiles of ancient cultures and modern high fashion.

This deep Mediterranean Blue from Skye's 2015 swimwear collection was inspired by the hues of cultures all over the globe, and of modern day design from fashion and textiles to cars and book covers.

Cut from our silky smooth "So Soft" fabric, the Skye Mediterranean Blue collection includes bikinis and one-pieces ranging from itsy bitsy triandle slider tops to full-support D, DD and larger cup sizes. It comprises mix-and-match tops and bottoms, as well as several stunning one-pieces, offering a fit and look for women of all shapes and sizes.
