Gorgeous resort-wear in all the ‘Colours of Paradise’
If you want luxury and opulence in your vacation wardrobe, you need look no further than Colin Heaney, a women’s swimwear label founded by the artist and designer of the same name. The world renowned glass artist turned his skilled hand to fashion design in 2010 with the launch of his namesake label, inspired by his love of the feminine, of sensuous fabrics and of quality finishes. Transforming his iconic glassware designs into the intricate patterns and prints found on his pieces, has made Colin’s swimwear and beachy cover-ups some of Australia’s most sought after.
The brand continues with it’s reputation for luxury and sensuality with their Spring/Summer 2012-2013 collection, which of course feature kaftans in the highest quality silks, as well as sarongs, scarves and complementing swimwear. With inspirations appearing to come from the vibrancy of Egypt and the Middle East, Colin has created a collection in a kaleidoscope of colour, which oozes decadence. Leopard and snake print accents, chic head scarves, cape-style kimonos and beaten gold jewellery, gave the bohemian girl a touch of luxury.
Stand out pieces of the collection include the ‘Colours of Paradise Leggings’ with their slim fit providing a sexy pool-side cover-up; the ‘Colours of Paradise’ Silk-Chiffon Kimino’, which would serve as perfect beach wear or cocktail bar cover-up; and the ‘Colours of Paradise’ One-Piece, a gorgeous versatile swimsuit.
