This is swimwear that’s loud and proud for boys and girls with a whole stack of pizazz who are raring to go for summer 2011/12! There’s no missing these snazzy swimmers from Funkita (girls) and Funky Trunks (boys). In an ‘out there’ array of prints they encompass interests as well passion for pattern, so there’s something to suit every kid on the block.
My six-year-old son just loves the Atari Attack design in red (below) and my favourite is the stunning retro Strawberryville print for girls in the one piece. As with most designs in the girl and toddler ranges, it’s also available in a rashie and trunks set for that extra sun protection (also below).
The ranges cover many sizes from toddler (size 1 to 5), child (size 10 to 14) right up to ladies and men’s and is made from exclusive C-Infinity fabric which is chlorine and fade-resistant and won’t go out of shape. I can personally vouch for the quality of the range – my boys grow out of their Funky Trunks long before the swimmers show any sign of wanting to retire to the big pool in the sky!
The company isn’t any one hit wonder – established ten years ago by Duncan McLean, a competitive swimmer and ex-banker, he was disillusioned with having to do his laps in unattractive, bland swimwear which sagged after two weeks. The genius of the prints comes from inspired fashion and lingerie designer, Jessica Holmes. We fall for those prints every season and so will you.
It’s time to investigate this compelling brand for yourselves; order online at Funky Direct.
Ahem ladies, as an aside, do check out offshoot label Kiargo. Oh. my. goodness; think retro goddess swimsuits with inbuilt support!
