Every swimwear brand has a philosophy or at least a particular feature that makes its products recognisable. Moontide has chosen to specialize in glamorous swimwear hoping to make its customers feel like Hollywood celebrities, even when they are at the beach.

The company was established in New Zealand in the early 1980’s and is now known for its innovative collections and proactive approach to fashion. For example, for its 2012/2013 fashion collection, Moontide decided to re-launch woven seersucker, a fabric that was widely used in the 1980’s for summer clothing.

The company has always been very proud of its roots and heritage, to the extent that it usually hires local models for its advertising campaigns. For its 2012-2013 campaign, Moontide decided to co-operate with Teresa Moore, a top model whose classical and delicate beauty is sure to be a perfect match for the company’s philosophy and glamorous products.

What we like about Moontide is that even though its swimsuits are elegant and sophisticated, they are all designed to hug the body, which makes them ideal for both thin and curvy women.

The image below shows a typical Moontide bikini composed of a ruched top and a seamless bottom which minimizes the hips. The thick straps attached to the top define the shoulders while the soft padding makes the chest look bigger.

Even though the model’s 50’s inspired make-up and hairstyle give the swimsuit a retro touch, its deep purple fabric makes it trendy and original.

With regards to the 2012-2013 collection, this is characterised by a combination of sober and vibrant colours, such as mocha, red, turquoise and orange. It includes both solid coloured pieces and funkier ones, decorated with both tribal inspired and more delicate prints.

Fabrics play a very important role in the new collection as the company uses a superior material known as “Meryl®”, which is incredibly durable and UV resistant. Among its many features, Meryl® ensures that colours stay bright and vibrant, even when you swim in water containing chrlorine. It also hugs the body, minimizing excessive curves. Moontide has also started producing kaftans to go with its swimsuits, which look like actual haute couture dresses, rather than mere cover-ups.

Thanks to their special properties, Moontide’s swimsuits can be found in boutiques, department stores and beachwear stores in over 43 countries across the world.
