Q&A WITH VALÉRIE WIESER, HEAD OF DE­SIGN, RIP CURL GIRL

What are the main ma­te­ri­als you’re work­ing with any­thing new? We have a new line ‘In­fin­ity’ with a new in­no­va­tive mi­crofi­bre dou­ble face. It’s ex­tremely stretchy, which sculpts your body for a per­fect bikini fit and with this spe­cial fab­ric we can also do the welded as­sem­bling for a pure de­sign line (no stitches!). It is the most com­fort­able, sporty and sexy bikini on the mar­ket. Our pro surfers ap­pre­ci­ate this bikini for surf­ing too.

Are you do­ing any sport-spe­cific lines?

Our Mi­rage col­lec­tion is a sport spe­cific bikini line.

This sea­son we have re­ally im­proved it with our new in­no­va­tive new elas­tic, ‘Surf Grip’. The elas­tic is made with spe­cial sil­i­cone dots that stick on the skin when you are in the wa­ter. The top has the ‘Surf Grip’ un­der the bust and at the waist on the bot­toms, mak­ing it per­fect for surf­ing in as it won’t move, it will stay per­fectly on the body and it is also re­ally com­fort­able. We have done lots of test­ing with our pro­fes­sional surfers like Tyler Wright and Pauline Ado, who are surf­ing ev­ery day and they have fallen in love with the Surf Grip Mi­rage. For them it is the best bikini for surf­ing and qual­ity.

What’s the key prod­uct in your line?

Our one piece the Mi­rage Ul­ti­mate. It’s the best one piece for surf­ing on the mar­ket with wa­ter re­pel­lant Ital­ian mi­crofi­bre fab­ric, a neo­prene panel and a spe­cific shape to wear surf­ing. What prints and pat­terns are on trend for Rip Curl this sea­son? These are our key trends for sum­mer;

Tropic Tribe this colour­ful flower print is in­spired by ex­otic flo­ral plants.

Beach Bazaar is an ec­cletic mix and match - striped ta­pes­try tex­ture mix­ing with a stamped blue batik pat­tern.
