Introducing CA by Vitamin A Swimwear—the new collection of bikinis and beachwear to rock your socks this 2015 summer season. CA is a new style remix: Cutting-edge Cali cool with a dash of global street-style culture. It’s the bad-girl beauty with salt water in her messy waves, a slash of liquid eyeliner, and a wicked smile on her face. Prismatic prints and textured stripes meet pops of color and sexy silhouettes. Reversible styling , mix-and-match palettes, and day-to-night beachwear give a girl endless ways to switch it up.
Oh, CA by Vitamin A, I love you. How much you ask? Let me count the ways.
The best part about this cutting edge design is the metallic shimmer fabric used. Not only is it fresh and fun, but you can shimmer in the sunlight without having to become a vampire. It’s a win-win.
LOOK AT THIS BIKINI. It’s mesmerizing. Cannot.Stop.Staring. This kaleidoscope of style and neon makes this bikini a fan-favorite. The coolest part about the CA California collection are the little details. Like on this one above — there is a killer racerback detail. Check it:
CA by Vitamin A 2015 sees the future of fashion as sustainability—and they are leading the way to lighten their environmental footprint, one bikini at a time. EcoLuxTM, their exclusive new superfine matte jersey swim fabric produced locally in California, using Repreve® recycled nylon fiber to conserve resources and LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber to extend the life of each swimsuit far beyond that of traditional spandex products. They employ waterless digital printing technology, incorporate sustainable fibers like Tencel into their après-beach styles, and choose factories that conserve water and energy use. Every step of the way, they take the time to get to know the people who produce their fabrics and collections—and to know they’re treated well. Vitamin A also donates a percentage of profits to environmental organizations. How cool is that?
Any collection that reps Miami is A-Okay in our book. So when you have a collection titled Miami Vice, and it’s as badass as you can see above? Then there is no reason to stop celebrating. CA combined the chic Miami colors with dark palms and strappy bottoms. Pair that top with a pair of boho pants and you’re ready to hit Ocean Drive.
We’re HUGE fans of the upcoming CA by Vitamin A collection in 2015. Keep an eye out for the rest of the collection to be released throughout the next few months.
