FREEWAY Summer 2011 Collection
Handpaint Tattoo Swimwear by Twinkle Ferraren
Summer is officially on! Time to hit the beach! And who’s a better partner than Freeway in your summer romp!
Bask in the summer’s glory with Freeway’s chic and trendy summer collection. In this year’s edition, Freeway once again collaborated with designer Twinkle Ferraren for its hand-painted Tattoo Swimwear Summer 2011 Collection. The most loved and everlasting form of art and expression is reinvented into something more wearable.
Twinkle Ferraren is a Filipino swimsuit designer who started her career with designing fashion accessories back in 1999 then took up courses at London before venturing into swimwear/beachline wear. Ferraren is a summer worshipper, “Summer is about exploration and new adventures; visiting new places, trying and learning new things, enjoying nature (which is becoming rare), breathing fresh fresh air. Creating swimwear for me is a leisurely side of fashion, representing the fun, carefree and easy going lifestyle.”
Freeway’s Tattoo-Inspired Collection is striking and definitely hot! Tattoo lovers can take their passion for the ink to the waves or just casually lounge pool side while looking stylish. The collection inspired by tribal and tropical tattoos includes mix of strong with vibrant colored statement, sporty, functional and active-wear inspired pieces and cover-ups. Swimwears are mixed with mesh materials and tattoos printed on the suit, perfect for those who love to try new sports and activities in the beach. Twinkle describes the collection as “a modern and female version of the Pintados and tribes”.
Ferraren loves on experimenting different styles and cuts since she knows customers’ preferences are changing throughout the years, “I’ve seen customers becoming more daring and experimental with their choices, most of the time they stick to the cut that suit them best, which is the most important factor of course – but that still has a different element in the suit each time.”
Knowing what’s the right cut for your bodyshape is the key factor in finding the perfect swimwear. Heed on Ferraren’s expert advice “The basics to remember are for full chests/top heavy – styles like halter, bandeau and tankini styles are good; for those who have less on top/flat-chested can actually carry the bikinis and the one-pieces with a deep neckline; those with fuller figures can create illusions with the one-pieces-especially the curved one; from this collection – the racerback and scarf-tankini are versatile sets that can also be worn as activewear (for exercising / working out).”
Just like any other girls, Twinkle is giddily looking forward to a fun-filled summer this year, “I’m checking out a yoga weekend retreat in Palawan, visiting Dumaguete and other parts of the Philippines (road trips mixed with boat trips), trying scuba-diving, maybe a flying sport, sand-boarding in Ilocos and/or as soon as I get some free time I plan to travel and maybe check out other countries like India or Hawaii.”
Prepare to have the fiercest summer ever with Freeway’s Handpaint Tattoo Swimwear Collection by Twinkle Ferraren. And put a bit of naughtiness and romanticism to your summer escapade with Freeway’s wide assortment of summer dresses, shorts and tanks you’ll surely lust for. Perfect pair to tone down after a long day pack of exciting beach activities.
