The Perforated group:
Featured Style: Sporty-chic swimwear is an always-fav, but was extra popular last season thanks to the Olympics. This season we’ve changed it up (just a little) to bring you the Perforated group. Notice the athletic mesh of sports jerseys incorporated into a sleek LBS (little black swimsuit) w/ white stitching (a Karla Colletto signature) to add clean lines and some contrast. As for the featured look in the group, how HOT is this retro high-waist bikini? The pant is a true high-waist (slightly higher cut at the waist than past seasons’ high-waists) that cuts low on the leg for a truly retro feel. The pant feels great on, with crisscrossing mesh side panels that hug your curves all the way up to the smallest part of your waist. See it paired with a new molded underwire bra with a lower center for a graphic ensemble in black. This two-piece comes in sizes 6-14.
Additional Styles: The Perforated group pays homage to classic (dare we say vintage) Karla Colletto—between the criss-cross patterns on the mesh to those sporty-chic silhouettes that you may recognize from our Outlines/Outlines II and Angles groups from past seasons. In fact, you might recognize the round neck (6-16) and one-shoulder (6-14) styles—essentially the same but with perforated black mesh instead of the sheer netting of last season. We’re also bringing back a V-neck zip-up (6-16), which is expected to be a season bestseller, as it is very versatile and flattering on many body types. As you can see in the high-waist pant featured above, a few additional styles incorporate a criss-cross side pattern with white-stitched overlay.
For an athletic build and/or small bust, try a high neck zip-front racer back with criss-crossed side panels and white-stitched overlay similar to what you see on the high-waist pant featured above (the high neck is available in sizes 6-14). You may also recognize this silhouette from our popular Outlines high neck, which received a lot of press during the Cruise 2012 season. This group has additional separates as well: an underwire bra (no padding) with adjustable straps and subtle perforated detail on top paired with a mid-hip pant (6-14).
Colors: Black only!
