BANG! Swimwear - Jamaica's Banging Swimwear Line

I recently got the opportunity to view Bang! swimwear's SS 2014 lookbook and I am pleased to introduce the brand to those of you who aren't aware of it. I remember seeing a few pieces last year when it just started out and then it really got my attention when I saw Rihanna wearing a piece on Instagram.


The brand, though newly launched, is an edgy and ultra-sexy range designed for women with a strong sense of style and confidence. The debut collection channels the two founders’ Caribbean roots, as well being heavily influenced by rock music, and as such Bang! counts Rihanna amongst their celebrity fans. “This collection definitely translates the contrast between our Jamaican roots and the European edge from London, which you can see with the bright colours and bold imagery. The rock theme really stuck and we spent hours trawling through books and exhibitions all on the Brit rock scene,” commented co-founder, and Jamaican super model, says Nell Robinson. 

The team has described their designs as youthful and unconventional with "a strong urban feel". As a top lingerie and swimwear model Nell Robinson, one half of the Bang! design duo, has a strong sense of style and vested interest in the construction of the designs, whilst partner Ann Marie Clarke, a seasoned fashion merchandiser, has a wider perspective on the brands image and the swimwear market. Both from Kingston, Jamaica but now living in London, Nell and Ann Marie have paired the Caribbean energy with a sleek, international edge. The collection officially launches for SS14. To see the complete Bang! swimwear collection please visit www.bangswimwear.com.
