Cote d’Or Launch Debut Swimwear Collection

By Paul Joseph

Miami-based luxury swimwear makers Cote d’Or have launched their first ever swimwear collection inspired by the ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures.

The collection features both bikinis and one-pieces, each emblazoned with colourings and designs borrowed from Latin America, including vibrant shades of green, blue, orange and fuchsia, as well as safari-inspired hues.

Amongst the collection is a retro one-piece wrap style suit with a high waistline and ties at the side, while others offer multiple overlapping straps or delicate chains. Bikinis range from basic triangle and asymmetrical sets to a braided bandeau top and hardware accented halter neck.

Furthermore, the collection also features a single trikini with side cutouts, merging the best aspects of the one and two piece looks. 

Co-founder Stephanie Theis Fajardo said: “Cote d’Or is a collection that demonstrates one can show skin without sacrificing elegance or comfort.

“The Cote d’Or woman is a fashion risk-taker who understands confidence is about looking good and feeling comfortable."

Pieces from the debut Cote d’Or collection range from $150 to $500.

Founded and based in Miami, Florida, Cote d’Or is billed as capturing the jet-set lifestyle of their high-end international clientele.
