Roy and Odabash team up for swimsuit design

Designers Rachel Roy and Melissa Odabash teamed up to design one stunner of a swimsuit — and you’ll definitely want to add it to your summer rotation.

According to WWD, Roy is unveiling a new swimsuit line, and to give a taste of her forthcoming collection, the designer released a new suit with luxury fashion and beachwear designer Melissa Odabash. The monokini style features a straight, strapless neckline, string ties at the hip and is covered with studs — and it’s even available in white, nude and black, according to WWD.

Available exclusively on for $369, Roy told WWD that this marks her first dip into the waters of designing swimwear. “Swim is very technical and you have to find the right partner to do it justice,” she told WWD. “What I appreciate about Melissa is that she is very attuned to what real women want from swimwear: beautiful designs, timeless sophistication and cuts that flatter.”

While Roy said she knew she always wanted to design swimwear, she also knew that she wanted to make her new swimsuits perfect, says WWD.

Explaining that she wanted to achieve a flawless fit, Roy told WWD, “You want to be comfortable and sexy at the same time … Melissa and I had quite a few rounds of fittings to ensure support and coverage in the most flattering ways possible. Trying on samples has made all of the difference for me over the years, and swim is no different.”

Although the full line will be revealed in October, according to WWD, you can shop the Rachel Roy x Melissa Odabash monokini now by clicking here. And be sure to check out other styles by Melissa Odabash here.
