Timothy Snell has been dressing curves on the red carpet for years. He is the reason stars like Queen Latifah, Angela Bassett and the late, great Whitney Houston topped “Best Dressed” lists. Now his impeccable eye for style is coming to Always for Me in the form of his new swimwear line. “I don’t see women as plus size. I just see women and want to find clothes that will look beautiful on them,” Snell explains as we sit outside of his launch event at the trendy Maritime Hotel in NYC’s Meatpacking District. He envisioned a line that would take women from swim to the street which is something he though the plus size swim scene was missing. “You can wear the hooded mesh maxi by the pool or wear it with a slip and sneakers.”
Timothy Snell x Always for Me is modern, chic and unique. The long sleeve maillot is great for women who want the coverage of a rash guard with more style. My favorite styles are the Jaden and Lola suits with bold patterns and zipper details. The plus size athleisure separates can be worn over a bikini or as your new favorite weekend wear. The Harley hoodie has stripes on the sleeves which gives it a varsity flair and would look great worn as a mini-dress with some hi-tops or with skinny leather leggings for fall. If wide-leg trousers are your scene, you will love the hipster pants. Here we see the zipper detailing again and these would look great with the Brooklyn Crop top or perhaps a wrap blouse and big jewelry for a night out.
The 24-piece capsule collection is full of versatile pieces that you can take beyond your summer days at the beach! Just be sure to check out Always for Me soon, because this will sell out! Big things are on the horizon for Snell and we can’t wait to see what he gets up to next!
