About

Charlie by Matthew Zink is a luxury swim lifestyle brand dedicated to the seduction of the perfect swimsuit.  
A tribute to the decadence of the late 1970's and early 1980's, Charlie looks to celebrate the joyful sensuality and effortless style of the past.
Charlie is the vision of New York based designer Matthew Zink. The former Design Director for Victoria's Secret Swimwear has created Charlie to indulge men and women who desire an elite swimwear experience.


Approaching its fifth year, Charlie by Matthew Zink has expanded the collection with even more of its acclaimed swimwear as well as its complimentary resortwear pieces.  The brand recently launched its first Men's Underwear Collection.  The 33 year old designer says, "The new underwear collection celebrates the same effortless style as our swimwear.  I wanted to offer our superior quality, comfort, and timeless sensibility in a category that our customers can enjoy every day.


For the Resort 2014 collection, Matthew paid tribute to Helmut Newton, Carine Roitfeld, Sharon Stone, Brian Buzzini, and Viva Magazine.  This season's pieces are grounded by our Charlie Zebra print complimented with a graphic palette of Black, White, Lipstick, Nude, Cognac and Fatigue.
 
For the Spring 2014 collection, the season was inspired by the iconic María Félix, filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, and the illustrations of Antonio Lopez.  Celebrating their color, character, and charisma with a rich abundance of prints in tiger, cheetah, bandana, and wave painted in a blend of terra cotta, burnt orange, turquoise, black cherry, platinum, and Caribbean blue.   The collection launches in February, 2014.
