Vitamin A Swim 2010MIAMI, Jul 20, 2009 / — Nicknamed the “LBD of Swimwear” (Little Black Dress), Vitamin A is on the spearhead when it comes to the sleek black bikini.

This season black is more important than ever, with incredibly sexy but wearable cuts, innovative constructions and flattering rusching detail, recalling the heyday of Hollywood Glamour.

For Summer 2010, Vitamin A designer Amahilia Stevens chose the most innovative styling details, such as luxury braided straps, exotic beads and matte metallic hardware.

The Collection is inspired by travels from the beaches of Bahia, Brazil, to the islands in the South of Norway

A graduate of the Art Center College of Design, Amahilia Stevens combines her California roots and her background in fine art with her global, jet setting perspective for her swimwear line. Amahilia’s bikinis are a personal obsession.
