i can’t remember the last time i loved a swimsuit quite as much as this beautiful mustard one piece from deta knits. for starters, it doubles as day wear. and in my case, lounge wear as well. yes, i’ve literally just pulled it on to wear in bed while reading a book or lounging on the sofa when no one is around. it’s made of a fine knit so it’s a perfect cross between a bodysuit and a more traditional swimsuit. and you can’t go wrong with the color! i’m also particularly fussy about the way swimsuits can kinda cut into your skin, but because it’s a knit, you don’t get any of that! so you’ll be hearing me sing praises about this for the rest of the season, for sure.
oh, and it’s ethically produced in new york city by anna berger, a communication designer who recently moved from berlin to nyc. what’s even more interesting is that her line is not just experimenting with knitwear design, but also co-developing and producing designs with local seniors. of the work, berger says:
We’ve heard from a lot of our senior collaborators that it’s been a good use of their time as well as an outlet for their passion for handcraft. It’s proven to be a mutually beneficial relationship: the seniors help the label with their skills, and the label provides them with additional income. It’s been rewarding working together with a cross-generational team on a product that normally would not be expected to unite different age groups.
so wonderful! i really love the way she’s thinking outside of box and i’m so excited to see what else she comes up with! not only that, but today we have a deal for you:
use code “calivintage” for 20% of deta knits through july 25!
