Free-Spirited Strength in our Bardot Stripe
We can’t even wait until the New Year to introduce you to the new us. Hermoza’s latest launch includes dramatic styles, enchanting prints, and the very best in breathtakingly beautiful, complete coverage. All new, all exclusive, all inspired by the Hermoza in all of us.
When you feel the impact of an icon, it can’t be denied. And while Hermoza is all about encouraging independent, original lives, we know a trailblazer when we see one. In the 1950s, Brigitte Bardot came on the scene as force to be reckoned with. She was carefree, playful, and had an international appeal that set standards and redefined feminine identity.
Her strength and confidence were not due to anything she wore – she embraced her femininity without apology and with all the grace and talent she could muster. While mostly type cast for roles that maximized focus on her physical appearance, Bardot took her influence with a grain of salt and left audiences laughing, tearful, and hopeful for more features.
Known for her hair, eyes, voice, and laugh, she captivated global audiences with performances that exuded a free-spirited, easy going vibe that was soft, yet strong and fresh, yet timelessly elegant. Her personal style accentuated a statuesque silhouette that was simply divine and full of attitude. She took ownership of her image and remained herself on and off stage, meaning she never had to pretend to be anyone else.
The world took notice of her instinctive talent and started casting her in more dynamic roles that enabled her to explore comedy and drama without relying on her physical appearance to do all the talking. She was passionate, romantic, and committed. She became “B.B.”, a nickname that could barely encapsulate the stellar celebrity she amassed, seemingly without effort.
Paying tribute to Brigitte is Hermoza’s exclusive new print, the Bardot Stripe. Contemporary, cool, chic, and empowering, it is everything we know B.B. to have been. A print that was designed to be remembered, our fresh takes on vintage-inspired style runs through the entire collection with the same grace, beauty, and presence of one of our favorite icons.
For Hermozas who are ready for something forward, vibrant, upbeat, and impactful, the Bardot Stripe is featured in the meticulously and mindfully constructed designs of some of our favorite one- and two-piece suits.
- The Johanna is a gorgeous, Grecian-inspired single shoulder one-piece, perfect for the damsel in all of us (without the distress, ofc). Available from our Movement Collection, offering moderate support for chic, active women on the go, this one-piece is as stunning as a poolside swimsuit as it is a luxurious bodysuit under a floor length maxi skirt. The single rectangular detail brings a little more Bardot to your closet as this simple embellishment adds instant glamour to any OOTD.
- Our Elizabeth one-piece serves up a serious, yet playful mood for our best B.B.-inspired days. The perfect print for any season, its vertical stripes flatter and enhance your natural curves while the contrasting black bottom’s attractive, complete coverage gives you the best fit you could ever imagine. With flattering tummy control, an adjustable side belt, a boat neck and a scoop back, this one-piece is perfect under a button-down A-line skirt just like Bardot wore on screen.
- The Cecilia one-piece is our stand-by stunner that has recently undergone a reboot. Now with adjustable straps and updated with an all new luxurious Italian fabric that feels even softer than a second skin, this fully lined swimsuit/bodysuit/playsuit delivers some serious scoop neck vibes with a twist (adjustable, on the mid-back). True to size and ideal for long torsos, the Cecilia is everything you need to give off that lighthearted and alluring comfort that Brigitte herself would endorse.
- We can’t even with our own Tiffany two-piece. The horizontal print is equal parts classy and fun, complementing that space in your closet that has been ready for something a little different. Perfect under a blazer for the office or as a breathable tank option with trousers for a girls’ night out, the Tiffany two-piece top is as dynamic and versatile as our leading lady. With appealing color and form, this top is suitable for the curious Hermoza whose wardrobe isn’t afraid of reinterpretation.
Thank you to Brigitte Bardot for supplying the fierce, visionary career of a Hermoza we can all get behind. And thanks to all of you, our 2019 was filled with an abundance of strength, confidence, clarity, and spirit. You mean the world to us and we are grateful to have such devoted women behind us and our brand. Cheers to the best version of all of us in 2020!
