When it comes to lounging at the pool or relaxing on the beach, your swimwear from high school just won’t cut it. Luckily, Aguaclara Swimwear has you covered.
Founded in 1989 by siblings Jorge and Liliana Villabolos in Lima, Peru, Aguaclara has had the last two and a half decades to establish its style and solidify its place in the luxury market. Rooted in Amazon and Andean influences, Aguaclara swimsuits have an ethnic taste that represents the founders’ love for travel and culture. Liliana, the company’s creative director, incorporates elaborate embroidery, exclusively developed prints and hand-made accessories to stay on top of— and create— new trends.
If you have any hesitation about buying a new swim suit, remember that purchasing quality swimwear is like making an investment that you’ll get to relish in for the next few seasons. And don’t forget that swimwear is one more way to show off your personality! Aguaclara’s new collection for Summer 2013 provides a number of unique styles, fits and patterns that will practically turn you into a walking (or sunbathing) piece of art.
With both classic black and white options as well as exotic animal print, Liliana’s cuts and styles are meant to drape the body in a way that will enhance the feminine shape and capture the beauty of the female silhouette. Accessories like faux ivory silver medallions, fine golden occhielli, and tortoishell chain-effect only add more glamour to the swimsuits. Pieces range in price from $59-$249.
