ABOUT BETH RICHARDS
A native of Toronto, Ontario, BETH RICHARDS graduated from the International Academy of Design in Toronto in 1999. Beth has been active in the industry for 14 years working with a number of leading lifestyle and fashion brands across Canada.
Beth launched her debut collection of Quality Modern Swimwear in Spring/Summer 2012, which was picked up by online luxury retailer, Net-A-Porter.com.
Designed for the beach and beyond, BETH RICHARDS swimsuits double as bodysuits and are as functional as they are luxurious. The sleek monochrome pieces are all created with the highest quality UV-protected stretch fabric from Italy and made in Canada with attention to fit and detail.
SPRING/SUMMER 13 COLLECTION
BETH RICHARDS Spring/Summer 13 collection is an evolution of the debut offering with updated basics and continues to draw inspiration from muses across the decades as well as bold iconography, such as the cross.
This follow up collection also introduces a rose color to the monochromatic palette of her first collection. An additional feminine element of stretch floral lace is worked into a few new pieces with sportier styles such as the Maud.
The Spring/Summer 13 collection continues to embrace classic and vintage styles. While a mix of mesh and high waists carry on as staples, this collection introduces a new super high waist bottom called Faye. This new piece allows the BETH RICHARDS woman the ability to wear a two-piece bikini with the look of a one-piece.
Crop tops add another dimension to the versatility of the line, enabling the wearer the chance to mix and match and pair with her existing wardrobe for post-pool outfits.
One of Beth’s personal favorites is the Gidget, a full piece extension of the Bardot with mesh sleeves. “I really wanted to marry the look of a traditional surf rash guard with our technical and luxe fabric, giving the piece an updated look.”
