Coordinate two pieces designed with cutting-edge textiles, fabrics and embellishments that tastefully show off your shapes and curves. There are some seductive Brazilian cuts, one pieces, monokinis, high-waist bottoms, sexy lace tops - playful cover-ups in tunics in sheer, crochet and bold tribal and tropical prints and knit sarongs - all designed for the bold and confident woman. Planning a wedding in the Caribbean, Have Faith Bridal Package ($99) has swimsuits that mock lingerie for the bride-to-be. Think: Well-constructed two-pieces in virgin-white with matching veil, booty veil (attaches to any suit) and garter for the first night in the sea (if you know what a mean…).
Give us some background info on Have Faith-Swimgerie.
Have Faith Swimgerie is a Swimwear Power House resulting from the merger of two distinctive Swim-Lines, the sexy and sweet Have Faith Swimwear (www.HaveFaith.com) started by model and designer Jennifer Stano David, and the lingerie inspired seductive Femme Noir Swimgerie (www.Swimgerie.com) started by attorney and designer Lilly Ghalichi. The two companies merged in late 2011, and best friends quickly became a dynamic duo of unstoppable businesswomen. The brand is set to release their first two collections since the merger along with their all new website, which will be based at www.HaveFaith.com. The two Summer 2012 Collections will include “The Desert” Collection of sexy and sweet suits, as well as part two of the “Dentelle” Collection (meaning “Lace” in French) consisting of seductive, lingerie inspired suits. Head designers Jennifer Stano David and Lilly Ghalichi jointly created both collections.
What differentiates your line from the other brands in your industry?
Two words: Fit and Uniqueness. Our suits really are the most flattering and different out there. Finally there’s an alternative to the basic, boring bikini and the barely there skimpy bikini. We’re something sexy that falls in between.
What was your inspiration for your Spring 2012 collection?
For the “Desert Collection”, our inspirations included the naked colors of the earth, the beautiful elements of nature, and the sexy curves of a woman’s body. We tried to create suits that were as flattering as possible, while remaining fun, flirty and girly. For the “Dentelle Collection”, we looked to the bedroom for inspiration rather than traditional swimwear trends. A woman always feels sexy and confident in lingerie, so we tried to capture that allure that lingerie provides, and incorporate it into the collection of Swimwear.
Do you design for both men and women?
Although we have exclusively done Women’s Swimwear up to now, we are set to release our first Men’s Collection this July at Mercedes Benz Swimweek in Miami. Get ready; it’s going to be HOT! Who says men can’t have fun with their swimwear too?
Where can Have Faith-Swimgerie be purchased and at what price points?
Suits can be purchased on our website, www.HaveFaith.com, or perhaps your local boutique. Be sure to call and ask your favorite store if they carry Have Faith Swimgerie. If they don’t, not to worry, our website will always offer the biggest and best selection of suits. Suits range from $99 to $299.
