Since the debut of her Jamaica-inspired swim and apparel collection in November, Candice Swanepoel’s Tropic of C brand has received positive reviews.
So much so, the Daily Mail has featured several of the designs and highlights Swanepoel’s ‘positive vibrations’ received since the release of images from the campaign on her IG page.

Given the current Reggae Month climate, a hike in sales is almost inevitable, especially when the designs reference so many Jamaican cultural hues.
Swanepoel has shared that the collection is heavily influenced by the Rock spirit, fauna, and the ‘1000 words’ of images taken by lifestyle photog Beth Lesser.
This blurb from Lesser’s website tab Witness To Reggae – The 80's Archive details how Lesser’s work in Jamaica and Caribbean-populated areas began.
“During the 1980s, my husband and I travelled frequently to Kingston, Jamaica and Brooklyn, NY from our home in Toronto, Canada to follow the changing reggae scene.”

Back in November, we announced the brand’s Rock-inspired designs, and since then the model-cum-designer have revealed even more beautiful images from the Caribbean Punch and One Love collections.
The Rasta Love collection features knit tube dresses, ink-blot prints, bikinis/monokinis, maillots, T-shirts, and two-piece skirt sets.
The prices range from US$35 to US$230.
Tropic of C is an eco-lifestyle brand inspired by nature and the female form.
