First came the velvet dresses, tops, and bottoms. Then we saw the influx of velvet accessories. But who knew we could wear the then-dreaded fabric to the beach?
Famous for their neoprene bikinis, Australian swimsuit brand Triangl just released a line of minimalist one-piece suits made out of velvet. A nod to the '90s, Triangl brings you a simple but flattering silhouette named Torri. Its classic shape features a low back and comes in neon pink, purple, and silver.
Now if you're wary about how it feels, the bikinis are made from premium quality Italian velvet so "it feels so smooth, soft and very comfortable on the skin." according to Gee, one of their sales representatives in an interview.
Additionally, she says it's also easy to care for. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry them. If creases do form, you can iron them inside out, be careful not to place the iron directly on the velvet fabric."
Retailing at around P5300 a piece, it is available on the Triangl website.
