KARA SHELVIN is a French, high-quality brand of designer swimwear for women. Its creator, Claire Matarese, is fascinated by fashion and innovation. KARA SHELVIN was born under the sun of the French Riviera. Basking in an elegant and trendy atmosphere, the brand is famous for its sexy and sophisticated modern designs. KARA SHELVIN stands out for its creativity, featuring both classical and daring models, as well as attention to details and savoir-faire in the selection of fabric and patterns.
Faithful to the trends of the seasons, the items are also structured and timeless. KARA SHELVIN is inspired by the self-confident and refined woman.
In 2016 Claire Matarese discovered a new, ready-to-wear fabric: fish leather. After a year of research, KARA SHELVIN became one of the first swimwear brands to use fish leather in its creations. The brand fabulously combines design and traditional know-how selecting new and hard-to-work fabrics. All the fabrics and materials are luxurious and of high quality. Carefully selected, they all come from France or Italy.
The brand is proud of supporting sustainable development. The fish leather used in its creation is environmentally friendly. It is a bi-product of the fishing industry, using raw materials that would not otherwise be used.
