For many of us, swimwear shopping is one of our least favorite tasks. If it fits, elastic pokes into flesh to unflattering effect. Go a size up, and the stretchy fabric is loose. And forget about a two-piece suit—it just seems easier to slip into a one-piece. Even if you do find something that fits, chances are you’ll have to favor function and fit over style.
Until now. Today, Minneapolis fashion designer Lisa Hackwith—favored for her easy-to-wear, minimalist-chic dresses and separates under her label Hackwith Design House—introduces her first swimwear line. Dubbed HDH Swim, the mix-and-match collection includes four tops, six bottoms, and two one-pieces in a clean, cool palette of white and black.
“We had customers ask if we’d consider doing swimwear,” says Hackwith’s Director of Operations, Erin Husted. “We wanted to fill a need that we saw in the market for swimwear that is stylish, sophisticated, and flattering.”
With styles ranging from high- to low-waisted and sporty to sleek, the designs are intended to complement a variety of body types. “I like to design with the idea that women’s bodies are as diverse as their skills, talents, and accomplishments,” Hackwith says in a press release. “Our swim line is no different.”
Unlike most Hackwith pieces, which are created in limited-edition runs, HDH Swim will be available year round, with additional colors in the works.
HDH Swim debuts on exclusively on hackwithdesignhouse.com today.
