Before Sunset: behind the scenes


Just a few pics from behind the scenes of our Early Cruise 2015 lookbook shoot back in early December. Thought we’d escape the cold weather and holiday hassle by returning to sunny Palm Springs, CA (even though it ended up being pretty chilly there too–Zinta even brought her fur coat!)

Many thanks to the Parker and the Viceroy for accommodating our crew!

You’re Invited: Spring Trunk Shows

It’s been a frigid winter here in the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast. A little difficult to think about swimsuit shopping at the moment, I’ll give you that. But in the chance that you’re one of those people fed up enough by single digit wind chills and school cancellations that you’ve just hit the “buy” button on that Groupon voucher to the Bahamas, then you’ll want to mark your calendar for these select few trunk shows on the Spring radar:

Saturday, February 1, 2014
Shirley & Company 11-4pm
42 Greenfield Ave
Ardmore, PA

Coming in May… (DATES TBA)

Everything But Water

Fun & games by Karla Colletto


The journey of Cruise 2014’s wanderlust It-girl continues with the Early Cruise 2015 Swim Collection by Karla Colletto. One minute she’s off to the races in this season’s classic, but vibrant palette. The next minute she’s a master of disguise in deep, mysterious hues. Who can keep up?

We’ve introduced a few new elements to give Cruise 2014 styles a fresh look just in time for spring! For example, the Contrast group now sports Pinstripe accents, while Trapunto is a new play on several classic Karla bestsellers combined. What else could be more perfect for our fearless female on the lam than our all-new Camo group? A second new group, Punchout, combines bold colors and laser-cut perforated details for a look that is all heroine. Enjoy this season’s many sporty racers and high-necks with comfortable and flattering fit for an active lifestyle.

The Early Cruise 2015 Swim Collection by Karla Colletto is available now through July. View the entire collection here and let the games begin.

January styles to start the year off right!

Happy New Year! 2014 may be off to a rather arctic start, but don’t forget that some of the hottest groups from our Cruise 2014 collection are hitting stores this month! Perfect timing, considering you’re probably booking that impromptu cruise to *insert someplace warm* right about now…

Flora, Positive/Negative, and Scuba styles are the perfect balance of sporty-chic and sexy It-girl with a touch of Wonderland to boot. Visit our collection pages to view all styles in each of these fab groups!

Flora collection • V-neck tank suit by #karlacolletto #cruise2014

Positive/Negative collection • Zip front halter suit by #karlacolletto #cruise2014

Scuba collection • V-neck zip front tank suit by #karlacolletto #cruise2014
