Most of you know that I love to travel, specially to places where minimal clothing is needed. Spain and Cuba were great because we basically lived in our “Sunga” which is a Brazilian version of a men’s swimsuit which is in between a speedo & a square cut. That being said, one of my obsessions is collecting swimsuits, so I’m constantly on the lookout for new ones. I’ve acquired many suits from my travels, through friends traveling to Brazil (the home of the Sunga) & online. I’m excited to find a Canadian owned & operated company with cool designs that I love!
I was surfing the net last week and came across a Toronto-based brand called SKMPEEZ and was impressed with their fun, colourful & unique designs. They offer two different cuts, one being the Squarez cut (a wider more coverage cut) & the Euroz cut (a slimmer “sunga” style cut). They sent us 2 pairs to wear & review for the One Mighty Party at Orlando coming up June 4-9. Watch out for my product review next month complete with pics from the trip. See a video of their Summer ’09 photoshoot campaign on the second part of the post.
Who is SKMPEEZ?
SKMPEEZ, Canada’s newest swimwear company has made quite the splash this summer following the debut of their first collection in Toronto in June of 2008, featuring two sexy “must have” swimsuit cuts, Euroz and Squarez.
Fashion conscious men around the world searching for the latest swimsuit for their next trip down south will be able to find a huge range of prints online in the latest collection from SKMPEEZ. Eye-catching, bold prints include classic hibiscus flowers, edgy rocker wings, and retro styled plaids and argyles. SKMPEEZ’ first collection includes two cuts, the Euroz and Squarez. The Euroz cut, as it’s name describes, was inspired by the shape and fit of the classic European style of swimwear. This cut sits low on the hips. Not quite as revealing as a bikini cut, the Euroz leaves just enough to the imagination. The Squarez cut on the other hand, has a bit more length in the legs but sits low on the hips much like the Euroz.
The exciting cutting edge designs in SKMPEEZ’ debut collection was inspired by current and past fashion trends as well as an infusion of basic graphic design theory. The placement and orientation of shapes and colours are important in optically enhancing the look of your best assets. This season’s innovative designs from SKMPEEZ takes inspiration from various time periods and cultures combining colours and patterns taken from the 50′s, with shapes and silhouettes from Asian culture and art.
