SWIMSUITS

Things have taken off for Gabby Sabharwal since she launched her swimwear line, Giejo (after a childhood nickname coined by her mother), a year ago. Instead of participating in the hoopla of Miami Swim Week, the designer—who also maintains her full-time job in public relations—opted to show her new Spring ’14 collection several weeks earlier, in New York. The intimate presentation was held at Dagny + Barstow, the hip Bowery boutique that happened to be Giejo’s first stockist (other major retailers, including Barneys, Shopbop, Satine, and Creatures of Comfort, later followed D+B’s lead). The newest lineup boasted retro-inspired separates ($90 to $125) meant to be mixed and matched as desired. For instance, a polka-dot gingham bra top was shown with a high-waisted floral boy brief for a pinup look, but it can also be paired with a simpler bottom if you’re going for something more classic. Sabharwal debuted a small range of ready-to-wear and accessories, too, including graphic striped tanks and surf shorts, a cropped floral bomber jacket, and sweet headbands—all cut from the same waterproof materials, so you can quickly recover after, say, getting thrown into a pool. When asked about her growing collection, Sabharwal offered, “Whether it’s wearing a full-on bikini or just layering a bathing-suit top under a day dress during the week, Giejo is about bringing fashion to the beach.”

    naturally like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will certainly come back again. maillot foot http://maillotfoot.1to1elite.com/
