Kushcush in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit!

Eeeek! I couldnt be more excited to share that Kushcush made it into the Superbowl of Swimwear…the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue!! And to boot featured in the cover-story with the gorgeous Kate Upton shot in Antarctica. Check it!

So hot & so cold! Kate Upton wearing Kushcush in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. The bikini bottom was made in a custom cream mohair + gold lurex fabric for Kate, but is available in a more water-friendly nylon/spandex version called the ‘Emily’ style, shop here.

Fashion diary: Solange Knowles

Welcome to the islands! I adore these photos of Solange Knowles spotted wearing my Kushcush Lovey one-piece in Ikat while on holiday in Jamaica. She looks modern and hip while epitomizing vibrant island style. British Vogue captured the look for Day 24 of her style diary. Loveeeee it.

The candid shots Instagram style (photos Solange Knowles via Twitter):



The Lovey romper one-piece (with a built in support bra!) has a vintage vibe and can easily go from day to night. Available in bold ikat print as seen on Solange at Saks.com ($167). Or go understated chic in solid navy, available at Anthropologie.com ($158).

How cute is she! The vibrant Ikat print with tones of fuschia, orange and purple is perfectly at home on a tropical getaway or an inspiration that spring is soon to come! For a little less is more, try the Bali string bikini in the same bold print, available at Kushcush.com ($145).

Fashion on film: “Bill Cunningham NY”

Now playing: Bill Cunningham New York. Wow, I cant say enough great things about this heartfelt, funny & inspiring documentary of the original street style photographer, Bill Cunningham. The film takes a peek behind the lens of a fashion industry legend who inspires and moves us in the process. Untainted by money & the superficial, his unapologetic decades-long love affair with fashion reminds me of why I got into the industry in the first place. LOVE love love….
