Black-owned brand Rue107 is the creation of Haitian born, New York based designer, Marie Jean-Baptiste. We are absolutely in love with ALL of Rue107’s creations (not just swim). These beautiful, bold, clean and expressive designs look fantastic on women of all sizes. Like there are some REALLY gorgeous and functional designs here ladies, it’s a miracle that this brand is not bigger than it already is.
Our favourite in the FleshTone swim category, is the Kirby one piece that comes in both ‘Rich Mocha’ and ‘Soft Mocha’. The Kirby is a really unique design and super pretty – it’s an off the shoulder number with a double layer of structured ruffles. The swimsuit is fully lined and is made from nylon/spandex (with polyester ruffles). This swimsuit has structure and is a lot more durable than some of the other flimsy numbers that you’ll see at the beach this summer. It’s also a great way to obtain more modest cover without looking dowdy. Prices for this swimsuit start at $98USD.
