For over 25 years, world-renowned designer Karla Colletto has redefined swimwear by using the latest innovations in synthetic fabrics and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. Hailing from New England, Karla Colletto pushes the limits of traditional swim design, reinventing the market with her distinctively original pairing of innovation and tradition.
The journey to innovative and daring swimwear began in 1981, when accomplished designer Karla Colletto joined with Lisa Rovan, her partner-in-fashion, to start their own design company. The two designers created custom pieces ranging from sportswear to bridal gowns. Noticing a gap in the contemporary swimwear market, Colletto and Rovan decided to apply their fine tailoring, modern lines and couture aesthetic to swimsuit design.
By manufacturing each piece in-house to ensure a dressmaker-like quality and using only the most luxurious materials, Karla Colletto quickly created an haute niche in the swimwear market. Throughout the years, Karla Colletto's swimsuits have been featured in a myriad of prestigious fashion publications such as Vogue, InStyle, Sports Illustrated and Elle. Her modern vision and cutting edge execution create a distinctive style that defies couture swimwear and challenges the future of aquatic design.
Even today, Karla Colletto continues to manufacture all of her swimsuits in the United States, ensuring that each masterpiece is impeccably crafted down to the last detail. Season after season, with new innovative textiles and manufacturing techniques, Karla Colletto continues to defy the swimwear status quo and make women around the world feel fashionably fabulous.HIDE DESIGNER TEXT
