Believe the hype— there’s only one swimsuit to be seen in this summer.
Macramé details, hand-beading, and sleek cutouts sound like designs reserved for high-end gowns, but that doesn’t stop Indah Huberman from artfully incorporating them into her best-selling La Jolla bikini, plus other standout pieces from her handmade, New England–based swimwear line, Seabellas. Huberman lived and worked in the fashion industry in New York for eight years before moving to Bali, Indonesia. She now splits her time between Bali, where Seabellas is produced, and Newport, Rhode Island, where she headquarters the company. This season, her hybrid of Eastern and Western inspirations have inspired blue turquoise, birds of paradise, and shibori prints. “[The] 2016 collection is all about new beginnings and being optimistic, inspired by my island-home,” says Huberman. “[The styles] honor Bali’s turquoise water and lush tropical gardens.” The Newport one-piece, featuring side cutouts, and the reversible Napali and La Jolla bikinis, with macramé details under the bust, have already been smash hits this year. “I also can’t be without my Ala Moana romper in shibori and the Lennox jumpsuit. They feel so comfortable, more comfortable than my pajamas!” says Huberman. “They are perfect-for-summer staples, from running errands to après beach BBQ parties.”
