Since 2005 Harper Yang launched Le Papillon with an array of colorful corsets that have become the brand’s signature, and in 2012, her enthusiasm for couture fashion saw the launch of her highly acclaimed swimwear and beach wear collection. Known for her approach to style and luxury, Harper Yang’s first swimwear collection April Mint showcases her signature layering, intricate draping and exquisite attention to detail.
In 2017 we are excited to introduce a new addition to LE PAPILLON COUTURE brand, April Mint at CURVENEWYORK. High-end fashion swimwear, for the modern women. The S/S 2017 April Mint collection was inspired by the beautiful Californian beaches and sunshine.
Designer Harper Yang who specializes in a custom-made corset wear –
“I spent two years working on fitting and sizing, thousands of times, striving to get the perfect cutting to give the experience of couture fit for our swimwear line. I painstakingly looked for the perfect high-tech fabrics to accentuate our iconic cuts, and innovative colors. We found la peau douce – a soft fabric designed to conceal imperfections and accentuate the features of the female form, and at the same time to provide the necessary support for a swimwear. The collection features cuts and shades to celebrate every skin tone and every shape in women. I am truly excited to introduce the April Mint collection.”
April Mint Swimwear strives to be a designer brand with an easy-to-wear designer experience. The result: elegance, slim, chic looks for ladies that embody youthful elegance, personality and effortless style.
