One Style Several Designs

by Sofroina Timmons

You got a chance to take a trip of a lifetime. You want to pack all the essentials and there''s just too many of them. There is one thing that's a definite, your swimsuit. How many do I take? How many do you need is the question? If you have Nuova Vita as a part of your wardrobe, you wouldn't ponder those questions. I mean it ladies! Francesca Maestrales, creator and designer based out of Boca Raton, Florida has designed a fashion-forward, trendy, and affordable swim collection that can be styled and re-styled in numerous ways to create a different look for multiple occasions.

This Collection has extended straps that can be styled by twisting, tying and wrapping into a criss-cross affect; around the neck, off a shoulder or worn as a bandeau. You can style the one piece with a plunging neckline for an elegant look or keep it basic. Bikinis and monokinis can be styled similarly. There are ranges of colors to choose from and each is handmade, fully lined and most of all, budget-friendly. Prices range from $78 - $168 and can be purchased online

What does the name mean or where did it come from?
Nuova Vita means, "new life" in Italian. I have always had a love for the fashion industry and a flair for style and creativity. I began my career in New York and when I moved to South Florida I found that my passion had become re-energized and my desire to own my company was stronger than ever. For me, this was a new beginning and the perfect opportunity to start Nuova Vita, which has been truly a "new life". At the same time, my entire collection features fashion-forward staples that can be worn multiple ways allowing women to breathe "new life" into their wardrobes quickly and easily by wrapping, twisting, and tying each piece. In addition to helping women look and feel good about themselves in my clothing and swimwear, I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and realize that every day is a new beginning and an opportunity to create "new life."

How did you get started in the swimwear fashion industry?
About a year ago I started making convertible dresses and tops, which I sold on my website - - Living in Florida we are always at the beach or the pool so my swimwear collection was a natural progression. I began thinking of ways I could incorporate the versatility of my convertible dresses into the design of a classic looking swimsuit.

How would you describe the overall feel/vibe of your collection?
The Nuova Vita collection was designed with comfort and style in mind and the idea that each piece can take you from daytime casual chic to evening glam effortlessly.

What was your inspiration for your collection?
The inspiration of the collection was to take your classic swimwear styles, one piece, monokini, bikini, etc. but to create them into convertible swimwear that you could wear in different ways.

What era in fashion does your line remind you of?
Nuova Vita is a classic line but with a modern twist. I think there is a little bit of everything in our line so it is wearable for everyone.

Give us three words that best describe the brand.
