Venturing right into previously undiscovered territory felt like a “natural evolution” for Rat & Boa founders Valentina Muntoni and also Stephanie Cara. They’ve made lively outfits influenced by “amazing journeys in far flung places” their métier, as well as currently, they’re diving into the swimwear sphere.

We intend to ensure that the ladies who wear them feel and look amazing,” the founders inform British Style. “We have actually put a lot of hrs as well as a great deal of love right into obtaining the fabrics and also fit absolutely excellent.”
The females define a really “open as well as personal discussion” between them and their consumers, which suggested they were able to evaluate need for an expansion past outfits as well as right into swimwear. “Our consumers tend to wear our gowns on holiday, as well as a lot of them have asked when we’ll develop swimsuit to sit along with them, or suggested certain trademark prints that they ‘d like us to use on swimwears or swimwears.”
The new Atome collection has the exact same wanderlust-invoking spirit as Rat & Boa’s ready-to-wear line: assume dynamic floral prints as well as a sundown colour scheme. The silhouettes have a sexy, nostalgic spin, from saucy Brazilian bottoms to triangle tops. The founders had vintage pictures by Hans Feurer as well as Jacques Bourboulon, pictures of Rio beaches in the ’70s, Helena Christensen rolling on the beach in the “Evil Game” music video, as well as snaps from their very own journeys on their moodboard, together with a sprinkle of late Noughties style.
Like much of the rest of the globe, Muntoni and Cara were yearning for travel as well as journey while creating the pieces. “Creating the collection was a fantastic method of pleasing the chase for a countless summer when we weren’t able to actually go anywhere,” they say, mentioning the exotic prints and holiday-ready cuts as a resource of relief in the consequences of pandemic-scuppered vacation strategies.
Even if your local park is the outermost you’re going this summer season, let your swimsuit collection fool you into thinking a London Lido is really the Med.
