Jaime Barker and Megan Balch started with color-blocked bathing suits eight seasons ago. They are now offering everything from French terry hooded robes, knit color-blocked dresses and skirts as well as Lycra midlength dresses — by popular demand. “We are listening to our customer. People are constantly telling us what they want,” the duo said, “and we have the flexibility of working closely with our patternmakers and factories.”
This season, their collection is dominated by what they called a “mango yellow” and navy palette. “We loved this combination so we built around that,” Barker and Balch explained. Another idea they ran up the flagpole: differing shades of blue, especially well-displayed in a cool aqua dress, slit to show a navy slip underneath.
