Kit and Ace, the technical clothing brand, is known for their washable cashmere, as well as their everyday luxury pieces that have given activewear a chic turn. Now the company has launched their very first swimwear collection, available now at their Capitol Hill shop here in Seattle, as well as their online store at kitandace.com. Known for introducing new and innovative fabrics, Kit and Ace swimwear is made of a quick-dry swim material, so that even after a day at the pool, you can easily meet for après swim cocktails while looking perfectly pulled together.

Designs for both men and women have been developed in a machine washable swim fabric that, when worn in chlorine, is resistant to fading and pilling. Sounds like a dream come true, particularly since good swimwear can be somewhat of an investment; even a regular amount of use over the summer can lead to early its early demise. The four-way stretch material features flat seams and non-slip silicone lining to keep the pieces in place, which means no wardrobe malfunctions. The mix and match tops and bottoms can be worn with the other not so basic basics from the line, including the pants and skirts, as well as the Kimono swim cover up.

The swimwear pieces continue with the brand’s philosophy of chic athletic wear that are a perfect combination of both form and function. Head to Capital Hill or check it out at kitandace.com.
