I remember seeing KORE Swim on sale in one of my favourite East Village boutiques, AzaleasNYC. Athletic, strong and alluring, KORE do a great job of creating swimwear that is friendly to both lounging on the beach and taking a dip in the pool as well as ocean-based sports.
‘From its ancient goddess origins to its modern interpretation, KORE stands for strength, power and allure. A woman’s “core” is her most fundamental, defining asset, and KORE swimwear is designed to enhance it – allowing her natural beauty to show from the inside out.’
For 2014 KORE bring us ‘Heatwave‘ ~ a 1950s Hollywood glamour meets Flashdance meets 1990s colour-blocking inspired collection of swim and surf separates and one-pieces. Never one to ignore any collection with reference to Flashdance, my favourites for 2014 are firstly a KORE signature style – the Maillot in onyx with high neck, cut out back and full brief. This is a sexy but substantial style. I also adore the strappy additions to Heatwave – the Bond Girl-esque bikini in peach never fails to amaze (the sheer aesthetical power of that one beach outfit that was enough to ensure Honey Ryder won’t ever be forgotten.)
