If you are lucky enough to live in New York, you probably could do with more closet space. (But really, who couldn’t?) When we see that Bloomies is starting to put up their holiday decorations, we know it's about that time to start packing up our summer favorites to make room in our teeny closets for more winter wear -- But don’t pack it all up yet. We have a new trend that lets us appreciate summer all year round, and you can thank our new favorite Danish friend.
I met Hanne Bloch in Chelsea at an emerging designers event a couple weeks ago. The ex-Missoni swimwear designer started her line a few years ago and it’s truly taken off. The key to her success – making it a family business. She uses her father’s old cufflinks melted and hammered down as the metal detail accents on her swimsuits.
When I told her I was in love with her suits she informed me that I would not need to wait until next Hampton’s season to wear it! Most of her clients are using her swim tops as bras under flowy tops and sweaters. This is a scantily clad idea I can jump on -- too perfect for those late-night swimming sessions at Le Bain… and laundry day.
To check out her swim wear and cover-ups soon to be sweeping nightclubs and beaches, check out her website www.hanne-bloch.com
