The Minnow Bathers Line Offers Retrofied Swim Fashion

— May 12, 2011 — Fashion
Swimsuit season is quickly approaching, and the hunt for the perfect body-flattering suit is on. Karen Donaldson and Vanessa Warrack are the minds behind Minnow Bathers, a Toronto-based swimwear line that combines “bold prints and striking silhouettes.”

The Minnow Bathers 2011 collection is reminiscent of what makes up the teenage years: “rebellion, summer fun, first beers, first tokes, and first kisses.” The brand is known for its retro-inspired cuts, and this year’s collection is no exception. My favourite is the zebra-inspired, high-waisted bottoms paired with a bandeau top. This is a flattering style that is sure to complement all body types.

All of the swimsuits in the Minnow Bathers line are handcrafted by the girls themselves, who put a bit of love into each piece.
Trend Themes
1. Retro-inspired Swimwear - Opportunity for fashion designers to create vintage-style swimsuits with bold prints and unique silhouettes.
2. Handcrafted Swimwear - Opportunity for niche market of handmade swimsuits made by knowledgeable fashion designers who take care about each piece they create.
3. Body-flattering Swimwear Styles - Opportunity for designers to create swimsuits in a variety of styles that are both beautiful and flattering for different body types.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - Competitive industry to create swimwear collections with different styles and designs to attract clients.
2. Handmade Products - Opportunity to market specialized handmade swimwear pieces and appeal to consumers who value high-quality, unique, and artisanal products.
3. Swimwear - Growing market to develop eco-friendly swimwear collections that prioritize reduced waste and sustainability.
