“My inspiration for the collection this year was paint, lots of bright colors of paint and abstract paintings, too,” says Gertie Hermanos, resident designer for the SASSA line. Rife with cheerful hues, trendy prints and stylish cuts, SASSA, like it has in the past years, makes certain that every single photo posted on Facebook of your summer vacay has you sporting a whole new swimsuit.
The Sassa Swimwear line doesn’t mean just swimsuits: one-piece, two-piece tankinis and bikinis or bikini tops and bottoms sold separately, but board shorts, rash guards (that are UV Protected, take note!) and tank tops, too. “We've made offering our summer line in collections that are in colors and cuts that are complimentary to each other, something our customer can count on. This way its easy to get some pieces from one collection, match it with another and just let their creativity make their own fashion statement. Sassa becomes a partner in making you look good in your own signature way,” Rossana L. Unson, Marketing Manager for the brand shares.
