Metallica... The Return of Heavy Metal


b_277_380_16777215_00_images_mauritius_003_6.jpgMetallics have been a huge trend and they made their mark on swimwear this season as well. What better place to don a little sparkle than at the beach? So alluring is the subtle shimmer of platinum or gold against tanned skin. I’m flashing back to my first bikini in the 1980’s – shiny, gold foil glistening in all its glory. When I put it on I was transformed, an instant rush and felt invincible. I can almost hear Little Red Corvette playing in the background…


For Kijian, it was sheer bliss to pick from the numerous metallic options available this season. One of the many standouts is a one-piece from Melissa Odabash – The Qatar. The color is an edgy combination of gunmetal and platinum melded into a lustrous patina. This bathing suit is pure fashion with its bustier top, front zip and rock and roll attitude. Stunning at the beach, pool or at night with jeans.

Also from Melissa Odabash are the Mauritius bronze string bikini with mocha gemstone detailing, the Evita available in Truffle and Mint Shiny both with gorgeous subtle luster, the gilded Rome bikini, and cover-ups Graina and Sanela. The Graina in a soft gray covered with silver studs and the Sanela, a glamorous apricot maxi dress with gold sequin embroidery and appliqué embellishments. A feast for the eyes and possibly a little rush for you too.
