Here at Kini we are starting our Friday with some serious bikini envy after seeing some gorgeous shots from Bethany of stunning fashion and lifestyle blog Kiss Me Darling. Her blog is based around looking and feeling good without breaking the bank, a perfect match for us, as we are dedicated to the fact that you should be able to wear the latest trends and own things that perfectly fit your body without the excessive price tag.
The height of summer calls for days spent seeking out the sun, which, in turn, calls for beautiful bespoke swimwear to keep you looking stylish. We love seeing your designs and one of our favourites this week came from Perth style blogger Jiawa Liu. A woman of many talents, Jiawa is a lawyer by day and a style mogul at all other times, keeping us updated via her gorgeous fashion blog Closet Voyage.
As you can see from her gorgeous blog, which shares tips on fashion, Melbourne hot spots, travel and everything in between, Emily knows a thing or two about the latest trends and we were thrilled that she chose to use Kini to develop her creative tastes and design her own swimwear from our range.
Emily appreciated the limitless options of our designing room, a feature we pride ourselves on, saying ‘the illustrated design template allows you to be as innovative as you want.’ She struggled with all of her choices, but eventually made up her mind! Take a look at Emily’s post to see more on her creative process.
Everyone has that one area of their body that they aren’t so confident with and when it comes to swimwear you can feel like you have nowhere to hide. Here at Kini, however, we believe that swimwear should be used to highlight your assets, disguise your danger areas and make anyone look fabulous on the beach, no matter their body shape.
The tummy is a main concern for many women, making them feel self conscious about baring all on the beach. So, you can either start doing three thousand sit ups every morning, or you can take a look at our tips for concealing your belly to give you more confidence and have you looking great.
Former Miss Universe Laura Dundovic snapped herself enjoying the sun in her very own bespoke Kini two piece last week. The model/ presenter looked stunning in her hot pink bikini which she designed herself. She chose a skinny style bottom with tie sides and a triangle top with a tiered frill, a beautifully feminine combination with a playful edge.
Clashing prints are hot news for summer, and here at Kini we love to see your designs coming in with unexpected combinations of florals mixed with stripes or animal prints paired with polka dots. We collaborated earlier this month with fashion blogger Bianca Melb, who created a stunning bespoke bikini in three clashing prints. Continue reading
