The beaches of the Caribbean are no strangers to controversy.
But this year, a new trend has been taking hold: women’s clothes.
This summer, the US brand The Velvets have teamed up with the Caribbean island of Barbados to launch a collection of ultra-feminine beachwear.
The collection includes a bikini and lingerie, and is designed to “give the beach an extra layer of glamour”.
The Veretts have created a series of new and unique beachwear for Barbados’ Barbados Day celebrations.
This is the first time the US fashion designer and fashion brand have teamed together on a beachwear line, and the products are currently available at The Vantage’s flagship store, in the town of Cajun Lighthouse.
The brand’s brand director, Laura Wainwright, said in a statement that the new collection “is meant to reflect the island’s vibrant culture and the vibrant women who make it so special”.
“We have been working with Barbados since 2012, when we opened our first boutique on the island, and we are proud to bring a unique collection of women’s beachwear to the beach this summer,” she added.
“With a unique, unique and fun collection of beachwear, we wanted to give Barbados a unique and unique look to celebrate Barbados day, and this collection brings it to life.”
‘I love Barbados, and I love fashion’ The Barbados Velvet Collection comprises a bikini, a bikini top, a lingerie and a swimsuit.
The Vretes also launched a line of womens swimwear, which includes a dress and a bra.
The company says that the range will feature “all the essentials to make your own bikini and beachwear”, as well as “our newest collection of bikini and swimwear”.
“This collection of fashion and beach items is inspired by Barbados culture and culture in general, which is the inspiration behind the name Barbados Beachwear,” said Wainwriss.
“We want to be authentic and to represent the island in a very special way.
The Verets have also released a beach-themed Instagram account, where they have created “the perfect beachy beach outfit”, which they captioned with the hashtag #BidysBeachwear. “
Our aim is to bring the Barbados brand to a whole new level, bringing in the beach to the mainstream and making it more accessible for everyone.”
The Verets have also released a beach-themed Instagram account, where they have created “the perfect beachy beach outfit”, which they captioned with the hashtag #BidysBeachwear.
“#Bidydogbeachwear, I love Barbades and I always wanted to be a beach babe,” one post read.
“The best part is that the beach is not the only thing you love about Barbados.
It is just as beautiful here as it is on the islands.”
Wainwiss added that the collection was inspired by the islanders’ lifestyle, and not necessarily in terms of the beach itself.
“I think that the Barbadian people love to travel, they love to explore, they like to relax and they love the ocean,” she said.
“So, I think the inspiration for this beachwear collection came from that.”
The Barbadian brand is also releasing a “bait and switch” collection in its second year, featuring swimwear and beach accessories designed for men.
“This season we are releasing a collection that is meant to be ‘bait’ to the public, to the casual and to the man,” Wainws said.
“[It] is meant for men who love to have fun and who enjoy exploring the Caribbean.
It will be available for men to purchase on BarbadosDay.com for $60.”
“This is a luxury piece for men,” she continued.
“It will be priced at $60 for men and $60 or less for women.
This selection will be sold in limited quantities at the launch event. “
In this collection, men are given a selection of beach accessories, including a necklace and a bracelets.
