Objects of Desire
Look good enough to eat this summer!
By: Marissa Kristal
Summertime is right around the corner, ladies, and that means one thing: Hello bikini season, goodbye delicious dessert! After all, big gooey buns and muffin tops look much more appealing as food items than they do extra padding on our bodies, right?
But what if there was a way to continue to enjoy our favorite sugary sweets throughout the summer months while still looking slim and gorgeous in our bikinis too? Thanks to KanDi Swim, a brand new line of suits created by New York-based dessert-loving designer Dani Kates, there is!
The decadent menu of sweets – I mean suits – in this savory collection consists of Chocolate, Strawberry and Mint Ice Cream flavored Sundaes, Cupcakes, Milkshakes, Smoothies, KanDi Sticks and Birthday Cakes. Depending on the style of suit, an assortment of toppings such as syrup fruits, nuts, sprinkles, frosting and whipped cream can be drizzled on top for an even tastier (and incredibly enough, calorie free!) treat.
And there’s no need to restrict your sweet tooth here; this 36-piece collection of suits was made to mix and match, so if you like a little Sundae with your Milkshake, go ahead and indulge. If you’re more of a baked goods kind of gal, you’re in luck: Kates says her theme for next season’s suits will be “Freshly Baked Bikinis”. Check her website at www.kandiswim.com for further updates.
After all, as KanDi Swim attests, who says you can’t have your cake and wear it too?
