June 21, 2021: Since debuting his namesake label in 2013, LaQuan Smith has earned cult status among celebrities and regular people alike. As all of you fashion aficionados likely recall, the NYC-based designer first launched with iconic 3D leggings. In the years since, he’s expanded into other categories, offering a full range of womenswear with an A-list fan club including Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Halle Berry, among others.
Smith’s fashion designs are unapologetically sexy, to say the very least. Mesh cutouts, curved seams, and lace bodysuits are all signatures of the brand that merge sex appeal with luxury craftsmanship. So naturally, this remains the case for the designer’s new category: swimwear. The 32-year-old creative translates his ready-to-wear signature style into swim silhouettes born to celebrate the female body.
The swim capsule is in partnership with online luxury destination FWRD. “I have always been interested in the swim space and have integrated a few pieces into past shows, but I am so excited to have the opportunity to debut a full range for the LaQuan Smith woman,” says Smith in a statement shared with GRAZIA. Smith and FWRD unveiled the collection just in time for the summer. It comprises 11 silhouettes inspired by dream luxury vacation destinations. Shop the lineup ahead.
