Earlier this Spring, Team Knix was all set to board a plane to beautifully sunny Tulum, Mexico. The reason for the getaway? Not only was it to escape a relentlessly chilly Toronto, but to feature our new Swim Collection in a very special photoshoot on the picture-perfect beaches of Tulum.
So we packed our bags, stocked up on sunscreen, and partnered with our good friend Sarah Nicole Landry (@thebirdspapaya) to put out a casting call to our customers. After all, who needs professional swimsuit models when your customers are as stunning as ours are!
11,000 women from all over the world submitted— a number that still floors us. A big thank you to all who shared their stories with us. Team Knix is in constant awe of our amazing and inspiring community.
But just as soon as we packed our suitcases, we had to unpack them. With the world turning upside down, travel quickly became out of the question. So we turned to our customers once again. If we couldn’t bring them to Tulum, we’d bring Tulum to them.
We sent our new Swim Collection to 25 members of our Knix community so they could model for us as they #StayHome. They all look amazing, and we can’t wait for you to meet them over the next few weeks on @Knixwear.
When designing the Swim Collection, we took special care in using materials that not only have UPF 50+ UV protection, but materials that are also chlorine, salt water and fade resistant too. We also wanted to make sure that everyone would be able to splash around in them— with sizes ranging from S-XXL+ and cups fitting from A-G.
While a vacay to Mexico may be out of reach this year, here’s to a safe summer full of running through the sprinkler, splashing in the kiddie pool and tanning in the backyard with a good book (we recommend a strong margarita too!).
