CANDICE CUOCO launches new swimwear line, BAD BUTTERFLY SWIM

Cutting-edge fashion designer Candice Cuoco and hip-hop and fashion icon Vanessa Simmons announce the launch of their new swimwear collection, BAD BUTTERFLY SWIM.


The collection is an extension of the pair’s BAD BUTTERFLY couture fashion line, which earned rave reviews as the finale of this year’s LA Fashion Week runway shows.


Coming from a pair of powerhouses, it’s no surprise that the swimwear collection, like BAD BUTTERFLY before it, will celebrate women’s strength.


My garments embody the idea of armor. When put on, laced up, zipped in, it transforms the woman. I always want the women who wear my garments to feel empowered. The pieces I create suggest ownership of oneself as a woman. Society tells women they have to be soft and quiet to fall in the lines of being a Lady. I don’t want to be a Lady, I am not soft in character nor quiet, and I do not want to design for a Lady. I want my garments to scream 'I design for WOMEN WITH STRENGTH.'

Candice Cuoco styles Goapele’s new music video

R&B/Soul sensation Goapele has just released her new music video, $ecret, styled by Candice Cuoco. The video features pieces from Candice’s new collection with Vanessa Simmons, BAD BUTTERFLY, as well as pieces from her previous collection, DEFLOWERED.


In the opening scene, Goapele wears Candice’s deconstructed button-up dress, SCARLETT, featuring a menswear collar, dramatic layers of back pleating, cutout front and back yokes, and an underlying black velvet bustier.


Later, Goapele wears Candice’s half-wrap knee-length corset, named GOAPELE in the singer’s honor. The corset, in black-on-black floral fabric with fringed chiffon accents, has an elegant swirl of boning surrounding a leather bustier. The look is accessorized with BAD BUTTERFLY’s unique silver rose choker.


As the drama intensifies, Goapele wears Candice’s stunning tulle gown, IRINA. The gown, with layer upon layer of tulle mesh spilling dramatically from a leather bustier, is interspersed with silk butterflies and accented with a studded suede belt. The breathtaking piece was the spectacular finale of Candice and Vanessa’s BAD BUTTERFLY LAFW runway show.


Finally, as she ascends the stairs, Goapele wears Candice’s leather coat, VIOLET, from her DEFLOWERED collection. The coat, with fur shoulders, beaded chiffon sleeves, satin cuffs, and textured purple and black leather panels, is a testament to Candice’s skill with leather and her unique eye for detail.


The video is viewable now on Goapele’s website, GOAPELE.COM.
