Childhood friends Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss and Charlotte Ronson have joined forces to create a beach line named "Made With Love." According to WWD, the two designers will make thier line available this February…just in time for those cruise vacations we won’t be taking next year if the economy keeps tanking.
The collection includes printed women’s and girls’ bathing suits (a one-piece and several bikini styles) and matching printed beach towels and cover-ups.
“We both love the same colors, but we have different ways to interpret them,” Ronson said. “So we are both really happy with the end result.”
Lonstein Gruss said they are targeting high-end department and specialty retailers to carry the line. Both of the designers’ logos will appear on the hangtags for the collection.
