Tara Matthews is the eponymous line of luxury and couture swimwear, designed around the globe and made in Brazil and India.
It all started with Tara’s extensive travelling around the globe and her exposure to a multitude of different cultures, from which she draws her inspiration to design.
Realising there was an urgent need for beautiful, handcrafted swimwear that still looked good once wet, Tara Matthews set out to create bikinis and swimsuits for the luxury-savvy yet active woman.
She started by choosing to manufacture her bikini line in Brazil, which led her to use the finest Lycra available as well as traditionally flattering Brazilian lines. Combined with exquisite hand-embellished beading and embroidery from India, it resulted in a revolutionary line of swimwear where beauty, luxury and functionality are never challenged.
The delicate materials, the embroidery and beading are used and crafted in a unique, patented way so the whole garment is strong and resists to summers of fun in the waves.
Beautiful in water, relaxing on a beach, lounging by a pool or on a yacht this line is the ultimate combination of sexy glamour and comfort.
The appeal has reached the A-list too with actress Lara Dutto spotted wearing Tara Matthews swimwear in her latest film Blue and soon in her new blockbuster Houseful and long-time fan Beyonce parading with her own selection on holidays.
Fashion insiders are giving the Tara Matthews lines the sartorial nod too and Tara Matthews swimwear was featured on the cover of April 2010 Indian Vogue and worn by Bar Refaeli and Brooklyn Decker for Sports Illustrated Swimwear issue.
