Modern, feminine silhouettes meet playful summer aesthetics with Tanya Taylor’s first in-house swim collection, a bold, size-inclusive launch.

Tanya Taylor Swim brings the essence of Barbados—where Taylor’s mother has lived for nearly two decades—to a line of swimwear, the first of two this year, with the second to drop alongside the Resort collection in November 2021. 

The first in-house swim collection features hand-painted prints, echoing Tanya Taylor’s ready-to-wear collections and last year’s collaboration with the swimwear brand Summersalt, which featured the hand-painted prints across Summersalt’s best-selling silhouettes.

 

“Expanding the art of our ready-to-wear swim is an important next step for our brand in meeting our customer at different needs of her lifestyle,” said Taylor. “I design our prints to bring joy and encourage women to feel energetic and confident, these are emotions it’s sometimes hard to feel when you wear swim. As women, we all know it can be scary to feel your best in a swimsuit, so I focused on this capsule to fit, flatter and encourage our customer to have fun and feel empowered.” 

Four swim silhouettes are featured across the collection, all adorned with bright, carefree hand-painted designs. Two one-pieces and two bikinis take elements from the NYC-based label’s best-selling dresses, such as wrap details, smocking and adjustable ties, with the majority of styles available from sizes XS-3X.

Bright and colorful, the hand-painted prints tie back to Taylor’s Summer 2021 collection launching on May 20th, meant to be worn alongside the swim pieces—sarongs and beach hats are to be mixed and matched with the “pigment splash” technique of swim, making one-of-a-kind designs on the pieces.

Bold, abstract patterns splayed across the four swimwear styles evoke a breezy and confident summer: abstract flowers in rich hues of blues and yellows are playful and make a statement, while cyan and tangerine tie-dye-esque prints recall bright summer mornings and peaceful sunsets.

The Tanya Taylor swimwear collection is available online now at tanyataylor.com.
