It’s very exciting times at Tiger Mist HQ, with Tiger Mist Swim for Myer launching this season. Their latest swimwear range incorporates the best of current fashion trends into statement swimwear pieces. Flirty cuts, sexy sheer panels and on-point lace up details make for a unique and chic swim collection.
Two vibrant, signature tropical prints are complimented by fresh white and black pieces in the latest styles. Swim pieces inspired by sun tops and crops are amongst diverse designs that stray away from the standard bikini.
Tiger Mist Swim will leave you looking sleek and sharp, whether your lapping up the sun on the beach, or indulging in a mojito by a resort pool (which we should all ideally be doing at some point this summer).
Swimwear is commonly one of the hardest items to shop for. It’s up there with finding the perfect pair of jeans. Discovering the perfect swimsuit for your shape, size and style is a tough criteria. So we were excited to catch up with the sisters behind the Tiger Mist brand themselves, Alana and Stevie Pallister, to find out how they managed to coordinate a swim collection that is so on point.
Your swimwear range contains everything we’re loving about fashion right now. Edgy mesh panels, lace up embellishment and a fresh colour palette. How did you predict your swimwear designs would be so on-trend?
Sports luxe has been an ongoing trend for swimwear, with the inclusion of mesh and panelling. We saw this trend continuing as it is so relevant to the market. Styles with mesh detailing that are finished well look high-end, but can still be accessible. The laced detailing was a strong trend in women’s apparel that we decided to transfer to swimwear, as it provided a new and exciting point of difference. The colour palette evolved with the inclusion of key print concepts in green palm and vibrant floral, while white and black were essential block colours and red complimented the floral print choice.
What are your favourite pieces of the collection and why?
Our favourite swimsuit from the Tiger Mist Swim collection is the Tie Me Up Top and Holiday Inn Bottoms in black. The lace up detailing in the top is fashion forward yet functional and I always like to have a black bikini that fits well on stand by.
Whilst summer itself is a blessing, many women find it daunting to scout out the perfect swimsuit. Why is it important for Tiger Mist to offer swimwear as well as clothing?
The decision to include a swimwear category at Tiger Mist was important for the label and the Tiger Mist customer. We saw a demand for on-trend swimwear styles in key colours and prints with a great fit, and being an Australian label it made sense to us. Finding the perfect fit is sometimes really difficult with swimwear because of varying shapes and sizes, but Tiger Mist offers multiple cuts for different shapes. We listen to the feedback from our staff and customers regarding what they like and don’t like about their swimsuits and adapt. We offer four sizes; XS, S, M, L and sell in separates to offer customers the opportunity to choose their style and size.
What are your ultimate must-haves for the beach season?
1. A swimsuit that fits well and flatters your shape.
2. Something comfortable and quick drying to throw over your swimsuit like a shift dress or – my favourite – a lace throw over.
3. The perfect summer pair of shoes that can be worn to the beach and out.
4. A broad rimmed hat
5. A cute round beach towel
6. The latest pair of sunglasses – of course!
