MAK­ING A SPLASH

This must-have Aus­tralian la­bel is break­ing all the swimwear rules

ELLE (Australia) - - Fiction -

One look at Aqua Blu’s chic bikinis and one-pieces and you know this is no or­di­nary swimwear la­bel. And it’s all thanks to cre­ative di­rec­tor Kris­tian Chase (be­low left). Hav­ing worked for Christian Dior, Louis Vuit­ton and Her­mès, Chase has brought a dis­tinct in­ter­na­tional feel to the de­signs, but trans­lated for an Aus­tralian au­di­ence. Think beau­ti­fully cut, high­qual­ity pieces that mix mod­ern shapes with fem­i­nine de­tails, such as luxe lace or cheeky cut-outs. “It’s all about push­ing bound­aries and cre­at­ing looks that ex­cite peo­ple,” says Chase. With this sea­son’s col­lec­tion fo­cus­ing on bold colour and strong prints, ex­cited is an understatement.
