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.

Vintage JAWS Tank


Swimwear Style #271

 

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...rising up from the depths of creativity to envelop your deadly curves, we bring you the Vintage JAWS Tank!
Cut from an authentic Universal Studios JAWS tee, "you're going to need a bigger boat" for all the shark hunters looking to trap you in their nets! This fearsome design blends a plunging "shark bite" neckline with sexy high-arched dorsal side cuts and a splashy quarterback back-style. The graphics up front feature the original movie poster from the 1975 hit JAWS and blend perfectly with the haunting "duh, duh...duh, duh" bubbles that originally graced the back of the collectible tee and now wrap around your hips and tail. Pried right out of the transom of the "Orca" and to add that final touch of shark-chic, a gigantic shark tooth buckle pulls it all together in front. Get your hooks into this one before summer's over and it dives back into the abyss!

Corona Miles Away From Ordinary


Swimwear Style #270

 

Miles away from ordinary...what a perfect way to describe this sexy couture design! Cut from a vintage Corona Cerveza tee and tied together with braided "boat rope" that criss-crosses in back and ties, Mexican-style, up front, this one's decidedly "Mas Fina!" The panel front is styled with ultra-sexy peek-a-boo sides and the age-worn graphics up front will put you in the mood for a tropical sunset with palms waving gently in the breeze.

Lip smackin' good! This lil' honey is sure to cause a buzz when you land on the scene...heck, this is going to cause a swarm! Crafted from a super-rare vintage Bit-O-Honey tee that started out on the adorable side of "gotta-have-it," our queen-bee Colleen set her revered shears to work on this incredible blend of sweet and ultra-sexy in this bee-utiful scooped monokini onesie. The custom beaded top, with one-of-a-kind "Bee-let" bees, is adjustable around back for a strategic fit but leaves you daringly bare and covered just where you need it. Around back, a super-sexy string back will show off that cheeky stinger of yours! You def don't want to miss out on this one!
The suit in the gallery is the one-and-only and fits size SMALL to MEDIUM.

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!

Hug Your Hog Bandana Fatboy Hotcakes


Swimwear Style #257

 

A Hog is a girls best friend!
There's nothing more perfect, to go with a vintage '80's "Have you hugged your hog today?" Harley bandana top (that has been designed with double tee strapping in back to ensure a snug fit) than a pair of perfectly worn-in Colleen Kelly "Blue Jeans Hot Cakes"! Just like the original Hot Cakes (see number 2455), these have a little extra "kick" - nicely "broken in" and fringed, with adjustable side overall buckles and cheeky back scoops, they have the added flare of a classic FatBoy patch in back and a chrome chopper key chain in front (removable). These unique, adorable yet sexy combos will "kick start" anyone's heart!
This unique and original suit is sized SMALL, as shown in the image gallery.

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!

Rev it up!!! This hot lil' custom was hand-cut from an original, road-worn, classic bar & shield Harley tee in black and orange. Perfectly styled with a rough cut plunging neckline, wide-cut belting, and a vintage chrome "chopper" buckle, you'll have the whole gang following in your wake! Around back, a cheeky quarterback shows off your deadly curves like only a Colleen Kelly design can!
Pair this suit with a Biker Jewelry Set to add just the perfect touch!
We have enough materials to make one more of these in your size!

Speed Racer


Swimwear Style #248

 

Get those engines revving and speed into danger in this ultra cool blast from the past... the Speed Racer!
Cut from an original vintage "Speed Racer" T-shirt and masterfully designed in the shape of the Mach 5's logo, this beautifully designed one piece will have everyone's eyes speeding around all your dangerous curves. The bottoms are a racy quarterback that shows off your cheeky side with an adorable vintage Speed Racer pin right where your competition will see it as you leave them in the dust! The stylish belted sides have been upholstered in white pleather and meet in front in a rare vintage Mach 5 racing car buckle that we sourced from our collectors. And, to style this out in perfection, Colleen added a super cute red neck tie, just like our cartoon hero wore.
This suit is sized SMALL to MEDIUM

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!
