On July 15th, 2022/ The iconic French designer Christian Audigier‘s brand made a splash during Miami Swim Week with the launch of the “Christian Audigier 2023 swimwear collection”. The new Swimwear line incorporates some of the Classic Art from before, such as the Black Panther and the Tiger adorned with crystals that made the line stand out many years ago with prices that range. The fits and body styles were updated to meet today’s Swim trends; prices range from $50 to $499.
The brand’s comeback started with the launch of women’s swimwear during Miami Swim Week, which will soon be followed by the roll-out of casual looks for her and him, including denim, outerwear, separates, and dresses. Department stores are clamoring to bring the brand back into their mix.
Christian Audigier became a worldwide phenomenon in the early eighties when his designs attracted the attention of celebrities like Madonna, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Paris Hilton, Lyndsey Lohan, Pamela Anderson, Tori Spelling, Venessa Hudgens.
The brand, now owned by Arie Setton, is disrupting the swimsuit industry by mixing edgy with adventure to create fashion that’s a state of mind. “We are super excited to revive this brand. It holds such a special place in so many hearts. Christian was beloved, and we have so many of his design ideas to continue to bring to life. “

About Christian Audigier:
Christian Audigier Swimwear was inspired by the French fashion designer Christian Audigier, best known for his work on the Von Dutch and Ed Hardy lines. The line remains true to his original vision but is updated to today’s trends. The rock and roll-inspired designs of the denim wear brand he launched at fifteen garnered the attention of celebrities and designers alike. In his heyday, he collaborated with Guess, Levi’s, Diesel, and Fiorucci, among others. His brands are still sold in over 40 countries. The world got to know the designer behind the brand, and we hope this line represents the direction Christian originally wanted. We believe this line can make a comeback in honor of its original creator Christian Audigier. Christian Audigier died on 9 July 2015 at the age of 57 of blood cancer, but to those that worked beside him, he will always be remembered as #VIF.
