ANDRES SARDA SWIMWEAR SPRING/SUMMER 2017
The Andres Sarda SS 2017 collection is characterised by refined lines and a fine balance between form and detail. A collection that showcases the label’s whole range: lingerie and swimwear. This season Andres Sarda explores new fits, fabrics and colour palettes, designed to look especially flattering, accentuate the stylised effect of the silhouette, and meet the needs of different body types. The subtle and functional details – as part of Sarda’s DNA – are woven into the designs, adding a light touch to an especially luxurious and sophisticated season collection. A harmonious range that showcases the creativity of Andres Sarda, specially conceived to ensure pieces in the various series go so well together, in both lingerie and swimwear.
Refined lines, a pattern design carefully conceived to adapt to different body types and a light colour palette are the standout features of one of the essential series of Andres Sarda SS2017.
The pieces in elastic crochet with microfibre shape the silhouette, which is slimmed down by the carefully considered design, and cover the more sensitive areas such as the back of the shoulders. The inside lining and padding of the pieces remain invisible from the outside. In terms of palette, the series goes for a total look of four stellar colours: Ibiza white, Klein blue, Rio yellow and tobacco.
The tops come in various patterns to fit different body types – balcony, bandeau, triangle and halter – while the bottoms have side ties or fastening rings. The essential character of the series is determined by details integrated in the design, such as rings in the same tone as the fabric. The range is completed with a low-cut halter swimsuit crossed on the back and a caftan tied on the hip.
The multi-coloured stripes in different widths reinterpret this Andres Sarda beach classic to create a new version for SS2017 in three stellar combinations: red, navy and white; brown, black and cream; and the sportier cream, green and navy inspired by tennis. The pattern has been carefully designed to ensure the stripes match up perfectly and are not distorted.
The pieces in micro-piqué elastic microfibre cover a wide range of styles, not least the bandeau, which is seamless so as not to disrupt the design, and tanga boxer shorts among the bottoms.
The balance between the richness of the print, the purity of the lines and the premium quality of the materials so characteristic of the Andres Sarda style pays homage to floral patterns in this series. A theme that the label reinterprets through two colour palettes: one hot starring raspberry, the other cold, in which porcelain blue dominates. Designed by Andres Sarda, the high-quality print comprises two different soft colours for each palette, giving a special brightness and deepness to the designs.
The piqué fabric with elastic microfibre creates a very casual look, while the garments adapt to the curves of the body thanks to the elasticity of the material. The details, such as the open rings on the neckline and hips, return throughout the series like subtle brushstrokes integrated in the design. The series pieces offer different fits to meet the needs of different body types, along with special pieces, such as a swimsuit with halter neck and very low cut back, and a caftan and pareu in silk cotton voile.
The beauty of the female body is the inspiration for a series in very fine elastic microfibre that shapes the silhouette with a girdle effect. The meticulously conceived cut shapes the figure, working in tandem with the print, which is available in two themes: geometric, made up of broken multi-coloured stripes in a combination of cream, green and black and a salmon animal print abstraction with black brushstrokes.
The meticulous details return throughout the series with black braiding for straps and at the back. A series that caters to all Andres Sarda fits in tops and bottoms, with a special swimsuit that is very low at the back and high on the leg.
The defining feature of this series, the stripes are in different widths to stylise the silhouette. The slightly satiny ribbed elastic fabric, particularly innovative in swimwear, shapes the body with a fetching girdle look. The colour palette comes in two combinations with a black foundation accentuating the optical effect, positioned in strategic areas of the body and combined with fuchsia or an elegant cream colour.
The series comprises all the regular styles, including the halter triangle with high bottoms that go up to the waist. The series is completed with a maxi-dress with straps and a very low back.
Refined lines and an elegant, restrained palette feature in an essential series made with a herringbone jacquard that gives the pieces a special sparkle and texture.
Luxurious details in anti-allergy golden metal are integrated into the design throughout the series, while also adding a touch of lightness to the straps, neckline and sides of the briefs.
The series offers a full gamut of styles to fit the needs of different body types, including a triangle bra with padding and no wires together with high bottoms with gathers at the sides to optimise the fit. The series colour palette offers the purity of red or the total look of black.
The star of this series is the colour, which is also used in the lining in carefully designed combinations to add light to the exterior. Aubergine with hot lava on the inside and khaki in contrast with Rio yellow make up a sophisticated palette, conceived to look fetching with various skin tones.
The subtle and functional details embellish the pieces with metallic rings in shiny silver that are strategically positioned so that they are attractively integrated into the design.
The series comes in various fits to fit the needs of various body types, including a swimsuit with a deep V-neck and low-cut back, and a medium-long dress in micro-modal with openings at the side.
The print made up of 14 different colours pays homage to the Andres Sarda tradition of creating its own patterns and themes in the purest haute couture style. With the whole wealth of nuances and iridescences, the series offers two themes inspired by nature: the cashmere flower painted in a highly pictorial version rich in blues and yellows, and the abstraction of a sandy animal print on a pale black foundation.
The metallic details return throughout the series on neckline and straps, and on the sides of the bottoms, adding a touch of elegance.
The series comes in a wide range of styles to meet the needs of different body types, with as highlight the high bottoms that extend up to the waist, with metallic details on the hips to accentuate the figure, and the swimsuit with very deep V-neck and luxurious details front and back. The series is completed with a sophisticated full-length caftan and roomy sleeves in a comfortable silk-like viscose.
