Palm Springs 1967 - About the Collection
Posted on 25 May 2018
Palm Springs 1967 is inspired by the mid-century modern architecture and design of Palm Springs, California. An oasis in the desert, Palm Springs was the place where California escaped reality in the 60s, lounging around kidney shaped pools and sipping Old Fashions. A throw back to the Madmen era, when one piece bathing suits were the status quo, and bikinis were only for the most daring. This collection embodies the vintage Bond Girl, with flattering cuts designed to show off your best assets in our iconic fabrics.
In a world of fast fashion, we have decided to slow things down. There is intention behind each and every piece we create. The Bikini Empire team is made up of twin sister duo who are surfers, designers and fashionistas. We know beautiful clothing when we see it, and we know how to create it.
This collection includes our first active wear collaboration with ethical legging queen, Heidi the Artist
. Perfect for gym wear and lounge wear, the La-La Lavender leggings
and Tennis Club top are pastel delights that will have you ditching your basic black. Our customers requested a sexy sports bra style bathing suit and we delivered.
The incredible La-La Lavender print
is a collaboration with Robyn Waffle of Totem Design Co
. A long time friend and fellow creative, we teamed up with Robyn to make this gorgeous wearable art. La-La Lavender is a stunning geometric flower petal print that will have you wishing it was the time and place to do psychedelics.
Whether you're a basic black
babe, or reach for any and all colours, we've created a collection that will appeal to the most discerning swimwear junkies. So pick your fav, and hop in the Cadillac baby because these styles are meant to be worn!
