Inspired by the bold and beautiful colours of African summers, original prints and the women who wear them, Pintuck Resort is a stylish new swim and activewear brand, based in Cape Town. The label is the passion project of fashion editor, Jo Springthorpe and swimwear designer, Beryl Goslett.
"Pintuck Resort's simple concept is to create gorgeous original prints, then pair them with a select range of swimsuit designs, that experience has taught us are the most flattering to all women's bodies. Then allow the women, themselves to play. With our help, our customers can pair the pattern she loves with the suit that suits her!"
Jo: " I've been a stylist and Fashion Director on major fashion magazines for most of my career and patterns, design, fabrics and colours have always been a passion. But my heart has always been in helping normal women - my friends and family, not only fashion models - look and feel fantastic in clothing. I know that finding the kind of swimsuits and active wear that make all women feel confident and beautiful, is one of a stylists' toughest, but most rewarding challenges. With Pintuck Resort, Beryl and I believe we can do this for all our customers."
Beryl: " In my career working in swimsuit design and manufacture, I have come to really understand womens' bodies. I know the cuts, style and colours which look best on each body type. I know that every woman can look and feel wonderful in a swimsuit. It just has to be the right swimsuit for her! It's the desire to share my knowledge, combined with a love of and passion for bold and beautiful prints, that inspired Jo and I to launch Pintuck Resort in Cape Town, in 2015."
