The beachwear collection, which bowed at Coterie in New York Sunday, includes a stretch denim triangle top, bandeau and shirred bikinis and one-pieces as well as striped terry cloth suits and sportswear.

The swim separates, which come in sizes 0-10, are priced between $15 and $45 wholesale, while the pull-on pants, tube dresses, hoodies and minis run from $35 to $68. The company projects bikini sales of $1 million in their first year.
