One of the hottest brands making a bold splash in the designer swimwear scene is Frankie’s Bikinis. Headed by owner and designer, Francesca Aiello, the band has exploded in the swim industry and bikini fashionistas and celebs alike (including a few of our favs like: Kylie Jenner, Rihanna, Bella Thorne, and many more) can’t seem to get enough of her fun, sassy, and ultra-sexy Cali-inspired bikinis and one pieces. The Frankie’s Bikinis 2016 collection was recently debuted during Swim Week at the uber chic W Hotel in Miami Beach on Saturday July 18th, 2015. The show was perfectly fit for the Miami scene; from the stylish hotel setting, the fashionable attendees, the established bikini models (let’s just say that bikini babe, Ms. Rocky Barnes, herself made an appearance on the catwalk) and the runway suspended over the hotel’s pool, we definitely felt the heat at this show. And we’ve got your exclusive first look at the 2016 resort collection…Who’s ready for these new trends?!
(1) Printed Perfection:
The Frankie’s Bikinis 2016 collection debuted some gorgeous new prints that certainly made us bikini aficionados weak at the knees. From tropical florals to ethic inspired ikat prints, Frankie’s does not disappoint when it comes to dishing out trendy designs and color schemes that can be mixed and match to your heart’s desire. Better yet, the collection also features new solids – including pastels and vibrant pinks and blues – that can be combined with these prints to create the ultimate swimwear look. #Ineedtheseineverysinglecolor #sorrynotsorry.
(2) Crochet Cuties:
Crochet and macrame detailing has been a huge trend for the 2015 season, so it’s not surprising that many swim designers are carrying over the trend into 2016. Frankie’s is certainly no rookie to macrame: her most iconic swimsuit design – the Poppy One Piece – features an intricately gorgeous crochet center that is not only feminine and figure flattering, but also draws the right attention to give you that coveted ‘swim look.’ In addition to her style staples, like the Poppy previously mentioned, Frankie’s Bikinis is featuring new swim silhouettes with subtle crochet detailing, including hipster bottoms, high waisted bikinis, bralette tops, triangle tops, and new wrap tops. The crochet on these pieces helps to add that “pop” of pizazz to tie in your entire bikini look.
(3) Brand New Additions:
A highly anticipated addition to the Frankie’s 2016 collection is resort wear. From maxi dresses and rompers to beach pants and cover up shorts, Frankie’s has included a wide assortment of resort wear pieces that are not only stylish for the beach, but that can be transitioned from beach to street. These cover ups are made from luxurious, subtle fabrics that are so light and breezy that they work for a hot day relaxing by the pool to a day out on the town. Mix a printed Frankie’s beach pant with a wrap bikini top or cropped tee for a casual look, or style a maxi dress with wedges and lots of jewelry and you’ve got the perfect ensemble for a night out! The options are endless!
The Frankie’s Bikinis 2016 runway show was too good for words, and we can’t wait until we get our hands on a few of these pieces in the fall. Don’t miss out on these 2016 swimwear designs for your upcoming vacation!
