GOODBYE FOR NOW…
After eleven magical seasons of learning, expanding and evolving our vision to create beautiful, sustainable locally made swimwear, K Belo is packing up and changing course. We have been based in NYC and Long Island, New York since we began production in 2007, which has put us at the center of the NY fashion world. As of this summer, we are heading West to bring K Belo to the sunny shores of California! Stay tuned for future plans and announcements! In the meantime, please shop our remaining stock of lovingly and locally made swimwear. Once these styles are sold out, they will be gone forever. As a thank you, all K Belo swimwear is on sale for at least 50% off and up for a limited time. No coupon needed. Thank you so much for the most wonderful eleven years. None of this would be possible without your support, and we are so very, very grateful.
It is Diane’s wish that all K Belo bikinis be swam in, surfed in, slept in, caked in sand, washed by waves and worn with love.
There is a kind of bliss that comes from a day awash in the sea, drenched in the sun; a perfect day bathed in beachiness. There is a radiance that bounces off us when we release everything stressful, grab our favorite people, or sometimes just ourselves, and go to the place where the earth ends and the ocean begins. To Diane, this place is heaven.
K Belo swimwear was created by Diane Belgrod, a native New Yorker, who was born on the beaches of Long Island, New York. Every weekend her entire family would set up camp on the beach at Tobay and stay until the sun went down. Even now this is something they still do, in the same spot, on the same beach.
For this reason all K Belo production is done locally in Long Island, New York, where the beach love affair began, and all trim and hardware are sourced locally in New York City’s historic Garment District. As a tribute to Diane’s Italian heritage, all K Belo fabric is made with beautiful and sustainable recycled Italian Lycra, which in addition to being gorgeous and of the highest quality, puts us one step closer to lessening our environmental impact. The name, K Belo, comes from the Italian phrase, "Che Bello", meaning "how beautiful"!

K Belo owner and designer Diane Belgrod, a New York artist, is inspired by form, movement and color, and seeks to highlight those elements in her artwork and designs. Through her use of ink and watercolor, she draws attention to the intricate universes of the often unseen, inviting the viewer to witness the inherent beauty of our natural world. Diane is excited to have transformed two of her own paintings into K Belo textiles for the Summer 2018 collection.
