Texas-born and -bred sisters Cassie and Andrea Ganesh have rolled out a sultry swimsuit line just in time for summer vacations and weekends by the pool, available exclusively at their West Village boutique, Demerara. The line is called Demerara by Cassie & Andrea Ganesh Swim | 5th Element Capsule, and boy is it a mouthful. But all you need to know is these suits are hot.
Ranging in price from $68-$189, the bathing suits come in various styles and colors, from basic black to eye-popping fuchsia. The line has an edge, which may come from the sisters' need to express themselves after years of living in a strict military household.
Although their parents ran a tight ship, the girls are grateful they were also given the freedom to pursue their creative interests.
"Our overall style for our women's lines is fun and flirty, with a hint of edge here and there," Andrea says. "However, for our swimwear and graphic tee lines, we definitely push the limits on edge." Adds Cassie, "The swimsuit line is definitely more on the provocative side but was designed to be worn by all types of fashion-forward women."
Lana ($68), a skimpy two-piece that ties on the hips, is the right choice for your next trip to Cabo or a dip at one of Dallas' impressive hotel pools. The one-piece Mazan ($189) with front zipper suits the woman who wants to look fashionable without showing off all of the goods.
This marks the fourth fashion line for the girls, who also designed the boutique's self-titled lines Demerara by Cassie & Andrea Ganesh (women's contemporary) and Demerara (men's contemporary). The D is their collection of men's and women's graphic tees.
