BLACK NEON / Lingerie Buyer Brand Feature

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Lingerie Buyer Black Neon has its first brand feature!

New swimwear brand Black Neon has described itself as a labour of love. Produced in the UK, the new collection offers retro and contemporary styles.

Black Neon’s first collection displays a mixture of turquoise and coral against black and pale gold, showcasing a nod to vintage glamour as well as using modern cuts tailored to suit all body types. Created by Jodi Muter, the brand’s designer, the line is her expression of what she believes swimwear should be.

Muter graduated from Kingston in 2001, and after a 6-month stint working in a swimwear factory in Mauritius, she has the tools to launch her own line. After a few unsatisfactory production attempts abroad, Muter has decided to make sure all final sales and production are made in the UK. One of the few swimwear brands to do this, Muter believes that with better communication the UK factories are able to deliver exactly what she wants.

The extensive collection, due for release online in mid July, not only has a vast range of mix and match swimwear for around £145 RRP a set but also has resort pieces made to order. The brand has its own Black Neon blog, where it promotes the brand but interestingly discusses the whole swimwear market, showing a wider awareness of the industry.

Katharine Hamnett X Yooxygen / Swimwear

Katharine Hamnett has joined up with to produce an eco friendly swimwear range. The 1950’s inspired ‘Save the Sea’ range created with sustainable fabrics and organic cotton will include 14 different styles and designs. The range has bright bold colours, patterns on one piece swimsuits, bikinis, tote bags and beach towels.
Talking to about the new range, Katharine said: “I have called this collection SAVE THE SEA as the sea that we all love is dying due to the impact of human activities such as oil spill, sewage dumping, industrial pollution, chemical fertilizers and pesticide run-off, lack of fish stock management, over fishing, pirate fishing which can possibly lead to the extinction of species including the blue fin tuna.”
I'm sure Katharine will be infuriated by the BP oil disaster, on the few occasions I have met Katharine it amazes me how much passion and knowledge she has surrounding the earth. She inspires me to seek out information in an aim to educate myself further about the enviroment and our effects on it. A good place to start is the links page on Katharine's website.
