Mumbai, March 2 (IANS) Bringing their unusual touches to swimwear again, designer duo Shivan-Narresh Friday showcased special swim suit line, which is resistant to ultra-violet rays, at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012.

“Our collection this season was titled ‘Mosaic’. The colours that we chose were a very summer colour pattern. We had chosen white, sky blue, and apart from the collections the new thing was that we have introduced handicraft segment in this season,” Narresh told reporters after the show.

The handicraft segment saw a blend of couture and swimwear line. The collection boasts of sharply cut silhouettes. However, what was unique about the collection was that the designer duo had created special swimsuits, which can ward off ultra-violet rays.

“The swimwear’s key qualities are that they are resistant to ultra-violet rays, sunscreen lotion, any kind of sand piling and curling,” Narresh said.

Another highlight of the show was the Maillot sari teamed up with a bikini. Narresh said the idea was to provide complete beachwear wardrobe.

“Our idea has been to do a complete wardrobe for women on holiday tours, honeymoon. You do have shoes, accessories so you have a complete wardrobe,” Narresh said.
