Yes, it's true… Ophelia is going to start carrying a few fall items during our "swimwear off-season". One such designer is Alexis. We are in love with all of her swimwear styles so it was a no brainer for Ophelia to carry her pre-fall clothing.
Take a look at some of her cool designs. These light and simple layering pieces will help make the fall transition a little easier for us living on the Gulf Coast. As you know, it stays quite warm until November!
Lately Ophelia has been on a panty ordering kick! So how could we resist when we received an email from GYPSY about their cute, sexy undies? Each seamless pair is hand sewn from the softest and most fun and eccentric fabrics!
GYPSY's designer says that the style is inspired by the love of all things beach "the sand in your toes, a cold dip in the ocean, freckled skin and smiles, sunshine, bleached out salty hair and flowers everywhere."
There is nothing as exciting as welcoming new exciting lines into our stores! We are extending a very warm welcome to Callula Lillibelle, one of our newest additions! Designers William Calvert and Melanie Fraser Hart are bringing youthfulness, sophistication, and classic silhouettes exclusively to Ophelia! We previewed their collection during Swim Week in Miami and were certainly impressed by the unique twist the collection had on classic silhouettes in wonderfully refreshing hues. William Calvert began his career in the land of couture: Paris, France. His background in the design world includes experience at the Houses of Balmain, Rochas, Balenciaga, and Diane Von Furstenburg. He launched his own couture collection after leaving DVF under his name, William Calvert. In 2009, William and Melanie Fraser Hart met through a mutual friend, and soon enough their line was to be born! Melanie Hart initially launched her career in the fashion/art world at the peak of the 80's and 90's and worked notoriously with industry icon, Vidal Sassoon. Currently in her 40's, Melanie was having a hard time finding garments that were sophisticated and age appropriate..and that still had a certain "cool factor" to them at a reasonable price point. Voila!Callula Lillibelle was born.. [named after Melanie's daughter, actually!], William and Melanie's collection, that is meerly the result of two strong design backgrounds merging into one vision. Callula Lillibelle is a truly functional and fabulous contemporary line. The wide customer range that the collection generates is outrageously impressive! Chic seperates are their number one specialty, but their latest collection of swimwear is a close second! Come shop Callula!
Curious to know what Monica Wise [head designer of L*SPACE] has in her beach bag?... and what her newest collection has to offer? Well, it's your lucky day! We interviewed Monica and found out the scoop behind her 2012 collection and much much more! While we previewed her collection in Miami, we saw everything from that noteworthy fringe suit that we love so much in fun fruity colors to some new fun graphic patterns that are perfect for mixmatching. Not only does her line offer a variety of options to fulfill your physical needs and wants, but she has recently expanded her line [quite literally..think: more coverage] and created some styles that will be sure to keep ya covered! She got technically more advanced this season and added some details to the suits that make them that much more wonderful, and completley functional!
What was your inspiration behind your latest collection?
collection inspiration definitely comes from travel and jet setting lifestyle.
jetsetters with an eye for fringed tops, draped maxis, tribal prints and wide
brimmed fedoras will love this new collection. The collection includes all
things resort such as rompers, crochet finishes and lace shorts and gives nod to
the tropics with mouthwatering bright colors. The collection includes L*SPACE’s
signature flattering fits and a slew of California-style, easy floral prints.
Bright colors, bold prints, and wild fringe are mixed with muted, delicate
We noticed lots of new styles with more bottom
coverage and top support. Tell us about some of these changes.
We wanted to
expand our market with more coverage on the bottom this season. We know the
L*SPACE woman loves our prints and the easy breezy mix and matching that can be
done with our collection, but might want a bit more coverage…conservative if you
will. It doesn’t change the look of the suit at all, it’s just personal style
without compromising the fit. Our new styles give the collection something new.
If we did the same styles EVERY year, our fans would be bored, and so would I,
so I like to change it up a bit with rouching detail, removable straps on our
bandeaus, reversible styles and new hardware.
What is in your beach
Sunscreen SPF 30, a large beach hat, an oversized towel, some snacks and
a huge bottle of water.
