Colour Inspiration - December & January - Summer Vintage Vibes

Helen Cloke colour inspiration limited edition kit recycled swimwear summer vibes swimwear fabric vintage

Christmas has come early! Well, the limited edition December kit has anyway. Or should I say kits - there’s six of them!!

These kits feature our exciting new swimwear prints designed right here in NZ by Melanie Edgar for her ‘In Mamie’s summer house’ collection.

There are four swimwear kits and each print has a coordinating solid, carefully selected by Melanie and myself.

We have four exciting colourways:

  • Stripes Light + Sunkissed (a pale terracotta)
  • Dots Dark + Limeade (an acid green)
  • Main Dark + Zenith (deep teal)
  • Leopard Dark + Shell (a soft beige pink)



The kits come in two sizes - Standard and Extra.  Standard would be perfect for bikini’s, or colour-blocked smaller size one-piece swimsuits.  Extra would work well for vintage style full coverage two-pieces or larger colour-blocked one-pieces.

Then there are two kits for board shorts!!!

Make some for yourself or your significant other as a Christmas gift. 

We have two exciting colourways:

  • Vintage Two Dark
  • Stripes Dark  

This kit includes a soft swim specific microfibre that will make a perfect pair of boardshorts, just in time to enjoy summer swimming!  

Create a comfort lining with the mesh and finish off with a pop of yellow cording.

You can grab these now in the Kit Section of the Nellie Joans shop.

I can't wait to see what swimwear you create with these - there’s so much colour-blocking and mix’n’match potential. Don't forget to tag us @nellijoans or #nelliejoans when you make up your kit, so we can see and share the gorgeous project you've made to inspire our online audience.
