Marc Jacobs’ cute Brazilian boyfriend Lorenzo Martone (above left) is following in Jacobs’ design footsteps and launching a collection of vampy swimwear under Martone’s new label, Nycked. The edgy line is a collaboration with Bijules jewelry designer Jules Kim–one of Beyonce’s favorites.
The collection will be available in November and cost up to $130. Martone told WWD that he didn’t ask Jacobs for any advice, and it shows. The NYC-inspired swimsuits are Martone and Kim’s antidote to bright and frilly swimwear made for California beach bums.
