Why know it
Designed specifically for Asian women in mind, K.BLU designs come with thicker cup moulds to help enhance smaller Asian busts, and offers designs with more coverage for the bottom. Few brands offer as wide a selection of one-piece swimsuits as K.BLU does, but don’t dismiss them as conservative and dowdy. They come with strategically place cut-puts and off-the-shoulder features that allow you to flaunt the most flattering parts of your body. In addition, the brand does intricate prints, making its designs so lovely to wear and show off on Instagram.
Its latest spring/summer 2016 Favola Nautica collection sees a new print design – nautical accents of intertwined ropes against salmon pink – from the brand that will lure you into dreaming of a day out at sea. Vivid and detailed as with all its prints, this season’s print is complemented by a denim palette for that urban edge. The collection also comprises its first loungewear pieces, which includes a form-fitting dress and halter playsuit for lounging on the deck.
