SunSoaked launches new collection featuring luxe Italian fabric

We are excited to announce that next Wednesday 15 October we will be releasing SunSoaked’s Summer 2014 collection via our new website.

The big news this season is that  we have made the move to new luxe Italian fabrics which are all rated 50+ and offer you the ultimate in luxury and sun protection.  Rodi by Carvico and Wonder by Jersey Lomellina are from world renowned sources producing innovative knits with a refined look and luxurious feel. Made from two way stretch these high-tech fabrics fit smoothly on the body giving a sleek, ultra-flattering effect. With excellent shaping power your garment will retain it’s fit over time.  Incorporating Xtra Life LYCRA® makes these yarns highly resistant to chlorine (10 times more effective than fabrics made with ordinary stretch fibre), suntan creams and oils so your swimwear will maintain it’s shape recovery power much longer.  We are delighted to offer our customers this new level of luxury and quality in our garments and know you will love the way they look and feel combined with the practical benefits which will give your pieces a longer life.

Our 2014 collection includes our very first bikini allowing you to create a myriad of ensembles and seamless looks.  This contemporary take on the vintage high waisted bikini is ultra flattering and will be available in two beautiful prints that coordinate with all other pieces in the range.  New SunSoaked pieces for 2014 include two new swim tops, lycra swim shorts and a chic ruched swim skirt to take you effortlessly from the beach to cocktails!

If you are in Brisbane we will be showcasing our new range at a pop-up shop at Grange Bowls Club, 79 Sellheim St , Grange, on Friday 17th October 6-9pm and Saturday 18th October 9am-3pm.

On the eve of releasing our new collection I thought I would share with you a behind the scenes look at our location shoot.  We were fortunate enough this year to gain access to a stunning beach side residence at Sunshine Beach in Noosa, Queensland.   It was the perfect place to shoot our SunSoaked 2014 collection, with a backdrop of ocean and lush tropical gardens.  Blessed with an astonishingly beautiful day we captured some amazing shots.


This is the view from the back of the house where the talented Gemma set up to do hair and make-up for our beautiful model, Krystal.  We were all wowed by the impressive outlook from the kitchen of this $5.6 million dollar beach house.  It certainly makes for an enjoyable day at the ‘office’when you have surrounds such as this!


First set was the balcony overlooking glorious Sunshine Beach.  The house had three balconies, this one on level one opened out to jaw droppingly spectacular views from the kitchen/entertaining areas. Picking up the acqua in our new Vila Tropicale print was the almost surreal blue of the ocean.


Krystal looks amazing in our classic Sandra Swim Top in one of this season’s new colours, Rosa Lucere.  Paired with SunSoaked’s new Bella moulded halter and Bella ruched pant.


The Moroccan inspired interior with its white washed walls provided a sleek backdrop for our next set with Krystal wearing our new Bella moulded halter, Sandra Swim Top in Rosa Lucere and new Ava lycra swim short.


Our new Villa Tropicale print, seen here on the Bella moulded halter, sat perfectly within the lush tropical gardens of the houses’ pool area, paradise found!

Hope this sneak peak has whet your appetite for more and I can’t wait to share the rest of the collection with you next week.  And I will look forward to seeing some of your lovely faces at our pop-up the following weekend.

Wishing you many happy SunSoaked days!
