Colleen Kelly Designs Classic Swimwear Collection - Custom Couture

Here you will find Custom Couture pieces by swimwear designer Colleen Kelly that have been made available for purchase. Each one of these “works of art” is made from vintage elements that have been carefully selected, assembled, and combined from collector sources around the world. They are one of a kind and, because of the time involved to create them and the rarity of the materials, once sold, they're gone. We do add new ones as they become available, so check back with us. If you’ve got an idea that you don’t see here or would like info on designing your own custom logo suits for your business, send us an e-mail to discuss the design options or just e-mail a request to be added to our special couture list to receive updates as new couture suits become available.

Swimwear Style #210

 

Oh Sandy! This sock-hoppin' retro two piece bikini design will have you lookin' peachy keen, jellybean! Inspired by Sandy's wardrobe in the carnival scene, the top is cut from an original vintage 1970s Grease T-shirt that has been redesigned into a cute retro top with short sleeves and lapels. The satin-finished bottoms are a sexy high-waisted design with vintage charms and accents that range from buttons from the movie (Pink Ladies, Rydell High, T Birds, Grease) to an adorable little 57 Chevy Greased Lightning, high school megaphone, and classic dice. A soft 50s style belt meets in front with a collectible 70s belt buckle featuring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. This is a must have for that 50s photo-shoot, a die-hard collector, or simply to prove that you're not "too pure to be a Pink Lady!"

The bottoms are a high-waisted, belted, body suit design with a slightly enhanced cut that gives it an edgier "couture" look. In front, the belt is joined with a vintage "snub nose" .38 pistol buckle and highlighted with sparkling pink crystals in an inverted star pattern down the front. Don't miss out on this one!

Playboy Bunny Ruffle Tankini


Swimwear Style #221

 

Originally designed for a Playboy celebrity editorial, this sexy tankini is made from an original Playboy promotional tee and cut dramatically to exude that perfect balance of cover and skin. The design features a wide, plunging neck-line that pairs with smoothly arcing side-cuts for an ultra sexy one-piece look. Adorable pink hip ruffles accent the sides to give you a flirtatiously "girly" feel. The back is our popular, form-flattering, Halfback. It probably goes without saying, but this suit is semi sheer when wet. After all, that's not the Easter bunny up front!

Made entirely from a vintage collector tee from the 70s that features the original "old school" Batman graphics from the TV series, this unique suit is scoop-cut for a unique bat-wing look. Around the shoulder and across the back is a bat-wing "capelette" that attaches at either side of the front. An ultra rare "Pow!" graphic buckle connects the belted halfback bottoms as a tip of the hat to the original comic book theme.

Each one of these Custom Couture swimsuits is a “work of art” made from vintage elements that have been carefully sourced, assembled, and combined from around the world. This makes them difficult or impossible to reproduce, so once sold, they're gone. We add new ones as they become available, so check back with us. For an update on newly available couture suits, send us an e-mail requesting to be added to the special couture list.
