The latest cover of Sports Illustrated is an indie dream. Landing her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover, model Hannah Davis sported Indie Soul’s customized swimsuit for the magazine’s 2015 Swimsuit Issue. The bikini – designed specifically for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit – is one of four Indie Soul suits featured in the issue.
“We are thrilled to have one of our suits on the cover of the Swimsuit Issue,” said Tim Gorgol, Indie Soul Creative Director. “We’d like to thank editor MJ Day and the whole team at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. We’re very grateful for this opportunity.”
Tailored for a “Downton Abbey” theme, the bikini was inspired by outfits from the ‘30s and ‘40s, with a color scheme of nude and black. Following the Indie Soul tradition of handcrafted garments, vintage lace from France was hand- stitched over the brand’s luxurious hand- dyed fabric to create the suit.
Davis has modeled for brands such as Victoria’s Secret and Levi’s. She has also appeared in campaigns for Ralph Lauren Blue Label and on the covers of Elle Mexico and South Africa’s FHM. The 24-year-old model made her first appearance in Sports Illustrated in 2013.
The swimsuit, which retails for $196.00, is part of the Resort 2015 collection and is now available for pre-order on http://www.myindiesoul.com.
