Before I entered the swimwear industry ViX was one of the only swimwear brands I knew about. My sister and I considered it our staple luxury brand that always kept us in style. The gold hardware detail was just one of the reasons we were so drawn to it, along with their fab prints and sexy, Brazilian cut bikinis.
I recently learned that ViX Swimwear’s gold hardware was in fact real gold. Just blew your mind, right?! Apparently they hand-dip all of their hardware in 24 karats of gold… Twice. To me, that little touch really confirms that swimwear is more than something you wear to the pool or the beach. It’s a day outfit with jewelry already provided, if you’re lucky!
The first piece of gold hardware that I was mesmerized by was on their new Angola Ripple bikini. The gold bar sits at the center of your bust and has such a classic look to it. I love it because it’s a simple addition that doesn’t distract from the gorgeous print. The hardware detail ends at the strings of the bottom with little gold nuggets at the tip. Cuute. <3
A lighter usage of the gold detail can be found on the vampy red Dakar Triangle. It carries that chill, nautical vibe and then WALAH! You see little gold, anchor-like details on the straps and the bottom, in between the rope feature. This bikini is fitting for the lucky lady who sets sail with her man on the regular. I’ll just put on the bikini now in preparation for my boat-wife future.
