Frankies Bikinis Channels the Summer of Love

by

Frankies Bikinis founder Francesca Aiello has been taking the fashion industry by storm with her swimsuit lines for years. Being one of the youngest designers to feature her collections during Miami Swim Week in 2014, Aiello is no stranger to success. The Malibu-raised fashionista has seen her designs on supermodels and celebrities such as Candice Swanepoel, Ireland Baldwin, and even social media queen Kylie Jenner!

 

Now back with an even bigger splash this summer, Frankies Bikinis is now featuring their newest collection called The Summer of Love, focusing on female empowerment. With must-have tropical tie-dyes, sweet florals, and bold solids to mix and match, Frankies has every swim look in mind. Ranging from edgy and daring to relaxed and carefree, these unique and sexy swimsuits are tailored to channel every girl’s inner confidence.

Cliché: Why is The Summer of 1966 special for you?
Francesca Aiello: For this collection, I wanted to pump up the volume and have fun. I was inspired by the psychedelic ‘60s, an era of social, musical, and artistic change. I always want women to feel beautiful and empowered when they put on a Frankies bikini, and nothing says female empowerment like the 1960s when the bikini finally became accepted into women’s lives.

What are some of the best features of this new line?
The best features of this collection would have to be our unique and signature crochet accents and all of our amazing prints.

What can you tell us about the fit, style, and design of the bikinis?
This collection is full of flirty bardot necklines, ultra-feminine lace-up detailing, and Frankies Bikinis’ signature boho-chic crochet accents, in the psychedelic 1960s.

How is this collection’s design different from every other brand?
We always try to strive for flirty and feminine pieces with a twist of boho. We have some amazing new one-pieces with lace up sides, which have become our super flirty and popular pieces from this collection!

Ashley Moore was an excellent model choice for this collection. What inspired you to feature her for your lookbook?
I was already a huge fan of Ashley Moore and casted her to walk in our RE17 fashion show, which is when I really fell in love and knew she would be perfect for the SS17 campaign.

How is Frankies Bikinis better than the average brand?
Frankies has distinguished itself from other brands for many reasons. One being our intricate designs and prints—making us recognizable to almost everyone!

What is the ultimate goal for the brand as a whole as well as for the new collection?
The ultimate goal is to keep making unique suits that make girls of all shapes feel beautiful!

What is your inspiration behind Frankies Bikinis and what motivates you to continue to work hard to produce quality bathing suits?
I am inspired by everything constantly. Ever since beginning Frankies, I’ve always been on the lookout for inspo!

What is your favorite piece from The Summer of 1966 collection?
I would say the Stella Crochet bikini and the Valentina!

Lips Like Kylie

by

We’ve seen it all before: the teenage girls in the Hollywood spotlight go from 13 to 26 practically overnight. But Kylie’s feature transformation tops them all, and she has made injectable lips synonymous with the Kardashian pout. So, what does it take to get Kylie’s look? About a seven hundred dollar payout and a lot of Juvederm. If you want lips like Kylie, it doesn’t come easy—but here’s the treatment in a nutshell.


If Kylie had the typical experience, it would have gone something like this. The lip technician would have put numbing cream on her lips that might have stung a little but would easily numb her mouth. Once her lips were numb, the technician would have asked how big she wanted her lips. Kylie might have had some idea of how big she wanted her lips to look, but if it was her first time getting injectables, she probably wouldn’t know how to quantify that. To give you an idea, half a milliliter of Juvederm would give lips a subtle, but noticeable increase in volume. She must have gotten at least twice that to make her pre-teen lips go to the volume they are at today.


After deciding on the milliliter amount, Kylie would have gotten shots in four places—the left and right side of her upper lip, and the left and right side of her lower right lip—and she would have received several shots in each place. For some, the numbing medication lasts the entire procedure, but for some it can wear off, making it more painful to receive the shots. To counteract the pain, technicians often use ice to help numb the area in addition to the numbing cream. After the procedure, Kylie might have seen some swelling or bruising. Lip volume usually comes down by half within the first day. During the first six hours, patients are cautioned not to talk, eat, or exercise. After three days, the lips take on the shape they will maintain for four to six months.


However, because Kylie is young, her metabolism is faster and her lips probably last closer to four months before diminishing in volume. This means she would have to undergo the procedure a couple times a year. If needles don’t bother you, the cost of maintaining these lips might. If Kylie got the procedure done every four months at a seven-hundred-dollar rate, that would cost somewhere around 2,100 dollars per year. Those are some expensive lips, but the pain to her body and her bank account is assuaged with her adoring 84.2 M Instagram followers and a lip line of her own.
