The Year of the Kaftan

Pink Kaftan with wild patterns

2012 will be the year of the kaftan for us in the swimwear world.

Kaftans have become uncommonly popular of the Christmas period, and we are delighted to say that so many people are taking an interest in a whole variety of them. The great thing about kaftans, and all clothing like it, is that it’s technically an accessory.

More of an accompaniment, really. An add on to the main outfit that can compliment or drastically change the tone of your look.

I’m a lover of subtle swimwear and understated fashion, but the kaftan is where the rules don’t apply quite so rigidly. Because it’s there to accent and alter the look somewhat, it needs to be sharper and more obvious.

Well, one new item that is really quite ideal for accenting your swimwear this coming Spring is Rosch swimwear’s new range “Passion“.

Rosch is obsessed with sophistication. Their work is fantastic, both in the quality of the item and the way they show it. Their photography is fantastic, isn’t it?

Passion is an interesting and intriguing piece. On the body, you have what is probably a passion flower, in bright orange and pink. I actually think that kind of colour scheme is possibly better for Winter, as the weather in the tropics becomes milder and this kaftan is ideal for sunsets near the beach.

I liked the zebra stripes Rosch chose for one side of the kaftan. I don’t know my floral arrangements as well as I should, but stripes and exotic flowers makes me think the design is a tiger lily…

Wikipedia just said it may very well be.

But what does it matter? Rosch has created a beautiful, versatile and effective kaftan. This is hard to do with bright colours, but Passion is full of milder shades that suit tropical Winters and gentle Springs. This is a stunning kaftan for exotic locations and equally exotic tastes.
