Lisa Marie Fernandez is a swimsuit fanatic.
The former Elle Market Editor-turned-stylist-turned designer made a proverbial "splash" with the 2009 launch of her eponymous scuba-inspired swimwear line. Taking cues from the sporty swim styles of the early '90s, Fernandez's color-blocked neoprene bikinis can be spotted by their chunky, exposed zippers and Bond-girl sex appeal.
On top of her beachwear obsession, Fernandez has taken her designs to the next level. This fall, she will launch a capsule collection of ready to wear pieces. The line features structured, second skin neoprene dresses, skirts, and skinny pants, all of which maintain that signature Fernandez look via zippers, geometric seams and sleek, sophisticated silhouette. Fabulous!
The designer also has a series of yet-to-be-revealed collaborations in the mix, but until then, you can look forward to browsing her fall looks Kirna and Zabete, Barneys, and Net-a-Porter come mid-September.
Please days...go faster...I need.
