Why You Should Dive Into Some Venroy for Spring/Summer 2013
Whatever bathing suit you decide to go with this summer, it should be able to withstand the brutal attacks of salt water, chlorine, sun and well, your eye for style. There’s plenty to chose from, but a new player on the American scene that’s got us pretty excited is Australian based Venroy. Their prints have been created using a digital process called sublimation in which images are printed onto paper and exposed to heat so that the ink transfers directly to the fabric, which is rapid drying, peach faced finished (read: smooth) 100% micro fiber polyester. The process not only resists fading but it has allowed the brand to create their own, unique designs you won’t see copied in any other brand, each of which has a particular story—there’s real floor tile that was photographed in Iran, a sandstone wall from Australia’s Bon Beach, and one we love in particular, the pool at the Standard Hotel on Sunset in Los Angeles. Fun. Times. Anyway, beyond the surface, the trunks use a super fine nylon inner mesh (way better than cotton), triple stitching through the mid-seam to make them and come with air release holes to prevent awkward ballooning in the pool. Check the full range after the jump.
