The Klein Karoo Collection from Summer Glen seamlessly combines comfort and aesthetics.
Cape Town-based photographer Tegan Glen launched the Summer Glen brand to create a swimsuit that is both supportive and sexy. Months of research and consideration cumulated in the Infinite range, an idea born while Tegan was exploring the beautiful Klein Karoo. Now, in celebration of the collection’s first anniversary, Tegan has dedicated her new Spring/Summer collection to this iconic region of South Africa.
The Klein Karoo collection includes four designs. Lunar is inspired by the absolute darkness over midnight in the Karoo and comes in classic black. Rosenka is inspired by the flowering prickly pear cacti, which is often dotted across the Klein Karoo landscape, while Fiesta is inspired by the bright pink fiesta bougainvillea that brings so much colour and life to the Karoo towns. Leo features a beautiful leopard print design, and 10% of all sales will be donated to The Cape Leopard Trust.
All of the pieces are designed for both comfort and aesthetic appeal. The full swimsuits feature multi-way straps that can be styled for any occasion. A bonus is that they support cup sizes from A to DD, and the high leg style avoids cutting over the hips. All of the swimsuits are double-lined to avoid any sheerness.
Besides creating a swimsuit that looks and feels good, part of the Summer Glen philosophy is a commitment to sustainability. The fabric is made from recycled plastic, and all tags are made from recycled paper.
