OUR 2nd WAVE SWIM GROUP

THIS YEAR IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SHINE... AS RUFSKIN CELEBRATES THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY, THEY LAUNCH THEIR BIGGEST SWIMWEAR GROUP EVER.

THE LOT IS COMING IN WAVES, BEGINNING WITH 1.0, THE SOLIDS AND 2.0, THE PRINTS. WAVE 1.0 FOCUSES ON RUFSKIN'S CONCEPT OF ALWAYS CREATING

CUTS THAT NATURALLY EMPHASIZE THE PARTS OF THE MALE FORM THAT MATTER THE MOST, INTRODUCING 50+ STYLES, OFFERING EVERYTHING FROM THE

SWIM BODYSUIT AND T-BACK, FUSING LUMINESCENT FABRICS WITH SHINY CHROME DETAILS, TO THE PATENTED DUAL-WAIST CALKINI™ AND EURO-BRIEF

WITH IRIDESCENT BUCKLES. CAN'T FORGET THE CLASSIC BEACH AND POOLSIDE ESSENTIALS LIKE THE ICONIC THONG/BRIEF COMBO, SQUARE-CUT, AND

BRAZIL-STYLE MINI-SUNGA. THE BODYSUIT HAS ALWAYS BEEN INCORPORATED IN RUFSKIN'S LINE, DATING BACK TO THE EARLY SPORT AND UNDERWEAR

DAYS. NOW OFFERED AS SWIMWEAR, THE THONG BODYSUIT AND "SEPARATED-SEAT" BODYSUIT WITH SIDE BUCKLE CLOSURE HAVE EVOLVED TO BE THEIR

SIGNATURES. LUXE AND QUICK DRYING, THE FABRIC FEATURES 4-WAY STRETCH, SHOWCASING MAINLY SHINY FINISHES AND A FEW MATTE. WAVE 2.0 IS

BUILT UP OF 10 CUSTOM ENGINEERED PRINT STYLES CREATED USING A UNIQUE SUBLIMATION PROCESS ON PREMIUM STRETCH MICROFIBER. THE PRINTS

COME ALIVE WHEN WET, FEATURING CUTS RANGING FROM THE TRUNK TO THE MINI-SUNGA, FULL-SEAT BRIEF, AND RUFSKIN'S SIGNATURE "CHEEKY" CUT.

THE IDEA BEHIND TOPICALIA SWIM IS TO SUPERIMPOSE; LAYER THE UNLINED PIECES, WHETHER SOLID OR PRINTED WITH STYLES LIKE THE SLING BACK-

LESS POUCH OR THE JUNIOR "MINI-THONG" FOR A CONTRAST EFFECT, SEE THROUGH WHEN WET.

 

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... A TSUNAMI OF NEW STYLES ARE COMING SOON, INCLUDING A BATCH OF EURO-BIKINI BRIEF SOLIDS WITH THIN ASYMMETRIC

WAISTBANDS AND STRAPS, NEW CALKINIS™, UNAPOLOGETIC THONGS THAT SHOW IT ALL, PERFORATED STRETCH NYLON SWIM WITH CONTRAST WAISTBANDS

AND SPORT DRAWCORD PLUS 3 NEW PRIDEFUL PRINTS. AS FAR AS POST-SWIM, RUFSKIN HAS YOUR BACK WITH THE NEW BUTTERSKIN GROUP MADE FROM

"BUTTERY-SOFT" DOUBLE-SIDED BRUSHED KNIT, STRETCH RAYON COVER UPS ON THE WAY PLUS NEW RUF-ACCESSORIES INCLUDING CUSTOM EMBROIDERED

5-PANEL MESH BACK TRUCKER HATS, SILK SCREEN BANDANAS WITH ORIGINAL ARTWORK AND COMFY JAQUARD LOGO SOCKS TO HELP YOU VIBE

ALL SUMMER.
