Countdown to the Cruise 2014 video!

Do you remember the enchanting underwater video lookbook we did for Cruise 2013? The big reveal for Cruise 2014’s video is just weeks away! We can’t wait to share with you! You are sure to love it! Keep an eye out for the real countdown (hint: it’s sometime in October) and prepare yourselves for an ADVENTURE!

In the meantime, a walk down memory lane…


New Horizons

Last month, we celebrated the expansion of our manufacturing facility into a brand new wing. Having this new wing will allow us to better optimize our efficiency to bring you our high quality American-made swimwear as quickly as possible. It is always nice to hit milestones and we can only hope that this (albeit small) achievement is only a sign of good times to come! Here’s to starting the Cruise 2014 production season off with a bang!

This news came out at least one month ago, but we finally got our hands on a copy. Kim is glowing in our white basic LMU lingerie twist bra and we’re loving the natural look on her.

Aqualillies for Tarte Cosmetics

It seems like these ladies are everywhere these days: appearing on Glee, in Justin Bieber’s most-watched video of 2012 (“Beauty & A Beat,” featuring Nicki Minaj), at various exclusive parties and events nationwide, and even as guest performers during the premiere of ABC’s newest reality show, Splash (the strangest concept for a reality show ever).

Now the Aqualillies have made another big splash (pun intended) of their own by teaming up with Tarte Cosmetics for a special collection of “high-performance” waterproof makeup inspired by the classic glamour of synchronized swimming and the vibrant ladies who have breathed new life into its modern revival.

Watch the first video from the campaign to see the ‘Lillies flaunting some Karla Colletto in action as well. The basic square-neck ruching suit in white is a stunning complement to retro coral lips, while the low plunge halter in teal looks extra cool paired with peacock-hued eye shadow. See some quick tips here.

The numbers are in for Sandy Relief!

This past holiday season we collaborated with a few of our Northeastern retailers in an effort to benefit those hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. We decided that for every Karla Colletto purchase made in their stores during the peak of the holiday shopping season, we would donate $5 to the American Red Cross.

We are pleased to announce that, as a result of this special event and your support, we will be donating $4,000 to the relief effort.

Our thoughts are still with those who are rebuilding their lives after the disaster and we sincerely hope that this small donation can make a difference! Thanks to all who helped make this possible!
