Chromat took a weekend trip to sunny Miami Beach to debut the new SS16 SWIMWEAR Collection at Miami Swim Week-- and work on our #designertanlines, of course. Go behind the scenes at Dive Preview to see the new #ChromatSWIM collection:
Never apologetic and always empowered, the SS16 SWIM collection is a celebration of the strong #ChromatBABE spirit.

MIAMI SWIM WEEK PRESS
"While this cut-out one-piece might cause problematic tan lines, you have admit it looks great on (and probably in an Insta selfie as well)."
"Following the literal rise of high-waisted bottoms, it's cool to see proportions flip flop with a more covered top and low-rise brief. The most interesting sets came from the Chromat runway."
"Miami Swim week halftime show featured Chromat SS16 presented by Dive Preview, a collection brought to life by the brand’s signature minimalism, graphic cuts, and cage details. The classic elegance of the collection was offset by trendy cuts, striking the perfect balance of easy and chic.
Even the one-pieces were perfect, allowing the models to show skin without baring all.
And they might have you considering a long-sleeved bikini top for next season, obviously to be styled up with ultra-high leather platform sandals. Designer/founder Becca McCharen gave us some backstage snaps from the show, and you can see the entire look book on Style.com."
"Dive Preview featured Chromat Swim as their inaugural runway show and we took a look behind the scenes of this New York City based design house as they prepare their 2016 collection."
