This season we are seeing a lot of designer swimwear brands utilise laser cutting technology which is a cut above the rest (excuse the pun). Laser cutting technology accurately and quickly cuts intricate designs and artwork into the swimwear fabric producing crisp, clean and sealed edges to prevent fraying.
While laser cutting is not a new technique it seems that designer swimwear brands have re-ignited the trend using it to add detail and difference to their collections.
We have seen a lot of laser cut swimsuits in the 2011 Maaji Swimwear Collection Flying Tales.
The Pixel Storm bandeau bikini features a lot of laser cutting on the bandeau bikini top. The bright orange pyramid shapes have been laser cut and are used in layers to create depth to the bandeau bikini.
The same laser cut pyramids are used to highlight the contrasting prints on the Delicate Jeopardy halterneck bikini. In this instance, it is not used as the main feature but rather to highlight the differences in the prints on the bikini.
Laser cutting is also not only used to cut intricate shapes, it can also be used to make interesting trim detailing. For example Maaji swimsuits such as the Flight of Fancy halterneck bikini, the Violet Propulsion bandeau bikini and the Mighty Wings triangle bikini have a laser cut ruffled trim.
