HONOLULU Fashion Week Designer Spotlight: Sneak Peek at Issa de Mar’s TRIBE Swimwear Collection

We are loving these sizzling ethnic prints and sexy, strappy styles.

This heat. You’re dying. You get that this is the tropics, but it’s starting to feel a lot more like the Sahara, to be honest. These days, it’s like everything you wear is hot stuff—and not in a good way. Could it be time to desert your entire wardrobe?

An oasis is ahead. How about living in your swimsuit until winter finally comes? The new Issa de' Mar TRIBE collection comes out next month, just in time for HONOLULU Fashion Week, and the sizzling designs are the perfect way to wear as little as possible while still looking smokin’.

Explore Chinle art patterns with pops of neon for a Navajo vibe, or ikat-like, kaleidoscopic styles complemented by strappy structures and bold solids. With a color story and cache of prints inspired by African and Southwest Native American styles (think shocking berry pink, classic blacks and whites, highlighter yellow and chipper mint), it’s just the line for this heat-wave weather.

Plus, you’ll love the fashion-meets-function aspects of these sandtastic pieces, which are all adjustable, with removable pads, removable straps and some reversible capabilities.

I think you’ve finally found your place in the sun. One that doesn’t make you feel like toast.

Look for Issa de' Mar and the TRIBE Collection at HONOLULU Fashion Week, and at issademar.com, in November.
