Established by Isaac Ross in 2012, Solid & Striped is a luxury swimwear label based in New York. The brand began as a men’s swim and resortwear label, looking to produce high quality designs from fine fabrics. Since then, Solid & Striped has expanded to also encompass women’s swim and resortwear, and this line is co-designed by Morgan Curtis and the founder himself.
High-quality fabrics from France and Italy are used throughout menswear and womenswear, chosen for their fast-drying properties and durable nature which allows Solid & Striped designs to be worn from year to year. This durability is enhanced by the label’s timeless aesthetic, seeking designs which will prove stylish in years to come. Signature to the label is their use of vibrant print and colour, though each design remains classic and wearable. Swimsuits are produced in elegant silhouettes, featuring belt details, cut-outs and asymmetric lines, while ribbed bikinis and sorbet-shade swim shorts are destined for the beach. Playful prints are used across womenswear, including stripes, florals and gingham, often met with vintage-inspired detailing. For the complete poolside look, Solid & Striped also offers striped cotton shirts, lightweight separates and shirred maxi dresses to be worn on holiday and beyond which consistently exude an effortlessly chic aesthetic.
As well as swimwear, the brand’s Solid & Striped Sport line produces activewear for women. This collection features pastel shades, whimsical stripes and sleek silhouettes which are distinctive of the wider label. High quality fabrics are lightweight and wicking, allowing for optimum performance with style in mind.
With a store in New York, Solid & Striped collections can also be accessed online, through the brand’s own site and via Matches Fashion, Harrods and Net-a-Porter.
