Insanely Cool: Black Box Swim
If you're not a theater geek, a black box theater might not mean anything to you — but any creative type will tell you that the beauty of a black box setup is its infinite versatility. Black Box Swim designer Jillian Gates channeled her theater background when she was creating the label's signature seamless, edgy designs. While she's based in Southern California, Gates always felt a personal disconnect between the surf culture and its impact on most swimwear design. In creating Black Box, she opened the door to more creative silhouettes and a sophisticated color palette that's light years beyond your standard 'kini.
Mesh insets, innovative wrap designs and clever keyholes set Black Box swim suits apart, as does the insane wearability of each design — seamless and self-lined, they fit like a second skin, sculpting and flattering your shape. The collection is designed with a color story that easily mixes and matches, making it simple to swap out a top or bottom to create a whole new swim look. What we love about this collection is how the unconventional silhouettes make for an interesting addition to your swim/street wardrobe: The Dita one-piece is exceptionally sexy and looks gorgeous under your best vintage denim for a body-conscious bodysuit look, and the Sasha mesh halter makes a super chic addition to your workout wardrobe in addition to being a killer beach bet.
