Colourful Italian prints, one-piece swimsuits and fitted, form-flattering bikinis in swimwear from Triumph is good news for Asian women. One of the brightest themes in Triumph's Happy Days collection is called Mexico, with patterns that draw from the folk art of the Aztecs in rich earth tones, or a patchwork incorporating desert flowers. As with most of the themes, it offers two-piece as well as one-piece swimsuits. 'The fitting and the cut is really tailor-made for Asian women,' product manager Virginia Miu said. 'In line with the trend for padded and push-up bras, we have also put this concept into our swimwear so, even for the two-piece, we have some insert padding and bust enhancement.' Intensive Pastels is another brightly coloured line with one design in new electric pastel shades. It is predominantly floral but the flowers are modern and graphic and the styling is young. Black and white gingham dominates the Tapestry theme, often mixed with elegant florals, checks and stripes. One swimsuit is designed to appear as two pieces, while a two-piece features a cropped top. Sporty and streamlined styles are to be found in the new USA-Sport line. 'We have two styles that are in line with the Olympic Games and then there are elements from the American flag and from baseball,' Ms Miu said. Even more innovative in terms of fabric is the small 21st century line which uses up-to-the-minute Italian print technology and has a space-age look with shiny, metallic fabrics and colours like shocking pink and turquoise. It contrasts shiny and matte fabric and comes in both one-piece and two-piece styles. For the younger set, Triumph offers the Bee Dees range of swimwear. It is not only aimed at teenagers but seeks to cater to women in their mid-20s. 'In our Bee Dees range, we have a fashionable three-piece concept, which is cute, combining the bikini with a mini-skirt that you can wear to the swimming pool,' Ms Miu said. They also feature in the Happy Days range.
