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.

Three cheers for Barbie! Get those pom poms fluffed up, fire up that team spirit, and wrap your bod in this sexy couture ode to that ubiquitous icon of childhood...the one and only Barbie! Cut from a rare vintage 80s sweatshirt, with Property of Barbie, Athletic Department graphics, and styled, like, totally cool, this suit was designed with peek-a-boo sides up top, open side ties at the hips, a slender side-cut front, a "cardigan" v-cut neckline, and a hand-pleated cheerleader skirtlette. Cute little hand-crafted pom poms adorn the ends of the ties on each hip and a cheeky thong is sure to get the crowd roaring every time you pull off your high-flyin' toe touches! Go Team!

The Barbie Love Onesie


Swimwear Style #260

 

We still love you Barbie!!! That classic vintage tee-shirt your mother couldn't peel off you when you were a kid has been reborn into this sexy one-piece design with an overall top and adorable tulle skirtlette that will keep you twirling! We had a little help fine-tuning the design from a few small friends of ours who just couldn't resist helping out with the photos and, thanks to the "girls" you can see that classic quarterback back-style and the partial "Barbie" logo from the original shirt. A collectible vintage Barbie belt and heart-shaped buckle adorns the front with that smile we all love so much. To perfectly accessorize the design, we're sending along a matching vintage Barbie bracelet that we sourced from a collector. (Of course, any Barbie-loving girl knows how important those accessories can be!) And that hand-made tulle skirt around the hips of this design is simply a work of perfection that you'll just love wearing!

Eagle Scrolls


Swimwear Style #258

 

Swoop down and sink your talons into this one before it's gone!
This gorgeous one-piece was expertly cut and meticulously styled to wrap you in a true piece of classic biker art! The tee is an original vintage Harley tee with unique turquoise patterning and swooping eagle artwork. A vintage, road-worn, eagle buckle, with matching parchment-scrolled edges, accents the front, ties in the parchment-scroll T-shirt graphics, and brings together the belted sides of this classic Colleen Kelly design. Bike chain neck straps, a cheeky scooped-quarterback, and a leather handlebar-fringed hip all add up to make this suit one to add to that "Must Have" list!
*We have enough materials to make one more like this beautiful custom. Select your size from the item page.

Hugged Your Hog Today?


Swimwear Style #255

 

Have YOU hugged your hog today?
Well, you better, 'cause there's nothing more loyal than that trusty hawg!
Now we have to tell you that we dug deep this time for this classic and highly sought after 1982 vintage tee. And, of course, Colleen couldn't wait to sharpen her shears and carve this beast into one of her coolest couture creations ever. Overalls shoulder straps with a straight cut top, beautifully arcing side-cuts, an incredibly sexy quarter-back, a vintage road-worn leather belt, and a rare vintage "Ride a Hog" winged Harley buckle all give this tire-smokin' design plenty of attitude. To style this suit out to perfection and add that finishing touch, a vintage leather Harley-Davidson Zippo lighter case was pried out of the hands of one of our collectors to add that finishing touch of biker-babe cool. It fits your iPod, by the way...but a Zippo might be nice to light that bonfire on the salt flats!

The Knucklehead


Swimwear Style #250

 

Attention all you Knuckleheads (and those who love you)!!! Our master mechanic at the Colleen Kelly Designs garage brings you a sexy, custom Knucklehaed that's been "chopped" and styled to flaunt your frame. Cut from a collectible vintage Knucklehead T-shirt, with hot little rough-cut sleeves and joined with shiny biker chain accenting, this beautiful piece is a stunning head turner. The streamlining of the design flatters your body in the switchbacks and hugs your curves with a cheeky scooped quarterback back style. The slingshot bottoms are adorned with a classic red oil rag tie and belted in front with a matching vintage Knucklehead buckle. You're sure to be "patched in" by the roughest of road warriors and have them purring like kittens in this hot little on-piece! Vroom, vroom!

The Fonz - Sit On It


Swimwear Style #246

 

Ayyy! Rockin' and Rollin' all night long, Colleen brings you this fantastic tribute to the cheekiness of the 1970s and, of course, the original king of cool...The Fonz! Crafted from an original vintage tee, this scooped demi-tee design is sure to have the diner hoppin' when you walk through the door! Gleaming brassy motorcycle chain flows down the sides of the design to meet an ultra rare, vintage bronze, "Sit On It" buckle that we sourced from one of our entertainment collectors. The design quickly goes from classically cool to really hot as the faux leather belt wraps around to meet a very sexy quarter back on the flip side. And to keep you "greasers" out there lookin' good, you'll find an adorable little pocket with a classic barber's comb tucked right where you need it! Up top, keeping on point with the 70s vibe, a vintage "Sit on It" button lets everyone know you're no Potsie and that they're lookin' at one cool kitten!

Vintage Batman Monokini


Swimwear Style #236

 

For all of you comic fans out there, Colleen's designed this beautiful one piece to unmask your super-hero sexy side. 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.

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!

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.
