Designer Caitlin Kelly Launching Luxury Swimwear
Caitlin Kelly is set to launch her first independent collection of swimwear for spring 2014. The upscale 35-piece collection will be shown in July at the Miami Swim Show. It will also be featured in a Mercedes-Benz fashion show at the Cabana Grande of The Raleigh hotel. Kelly started her career in 2006 designing the swimwear line for Badgley Mischka. She then moved to Aerin Rose Swimwear and was the head designer.
Now Kelly wants to design her own and created a collection of bathing suits that have the look and feeling of eveningwear. She has even incorporated Italian lace on a few styles. Kelly’s most versatile piece is called Endless Possibilities and can be worn dozens of ways.
“I like to work with fabrics that are not traditionally used in swimwear. These fabrics are unique and exclusive and are chlorine and salt water safe,” said Kelly. The collection will be sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Caitlin-kelly.com. The pieces will range in price from $280 to $600.
