(Filed Under Wholesale Swimwear News). Stella Marina, an Italian swimwear and beachwear brand, plans to introduce itself to the U.S. market at next July’s Miami Swimshow. Wholesale prices currently run from 50 to 120 Euros; equivalent to approximately $68 to $165 at the current exchange rate. Suits range from one-pieces to bikinis encrusted with swarovski crystal patent leather, semi-precious stones and hand embroidered sequins, available in sizes XS through XXL.
Susanna Rupp, owner and creative director of the company, introduced the 2011 collection at Paris’ Mode City last month. Inspired by natural and earthy themes, the line encompasses 11 ranges, and new accessories including straw hats; bags; sandals; bracelets; and necklaces.
Signature ranges are Spiral, comprised of bikinis splashed with beachwear-themed replications of works of art; Folk, inspired by the French countryside with embroidered flowers and hand-applied pearls; and Stonefall, which the company described as “a shower of semi precious stones applied to a fine soft touch fabric, like a necklace gently falling and revealing its low cut, and elegance.”
Other ranges are Flowers From Magic India; Patent Leather; Oriental; Snake Skin; Flowers From The Garden; Shiny Elegance; and Rainbow.
Rupp founded Stella Marina in 2004 after 15 years working for a design studio.
