Designer Lisa Curran founded her eponymous swimwear line in 1997 to serve a demographic that she herself belonged to: fashionable women who had trouble finding swimsuits that were, you know, actually flattering. Inspired by her frustrating bikini quest, Curran created a collection of chic and well-fitting suits and cover-ups that cater to women of diverse body shapes and sizes. From black tankinis to yellow bikinis, white tunics and embroidered caftans, Curran’s unique designs are constructed from fine Italian fabrics and feature prints inspired by everything from vintage dresses to antique china. In recent years Curran has expanded her label to include dresses, shirts and other separates — some of which have appeared in the pages of <i>Lucky</i>, <i>Harper's Bazaar</i>, and <i>Elle</i>.
Sexy bikinis. Boardwalk-ready rompers. Breezy caftans. We've got beach on the brain here at Gilt, so we've rounded up some of our favorite sand-and-surf wear. Whether you're hitting the beach for a day trip or spending the rest of the month on holiday, the figure-flattering designs and bold prints here ensure plenty of fun in the sun.
