Now that we’ve caught our breath after the whirlwind adventure that was Miami Swim Week…we’re excited to share this season’s South African-inspired collection with you! This was our very first time at Miami Swim Week and we had an absolute blast and already we can’t wait to go back!
Of course, we stayed true to our dynamic prints, while introducing new colorways and prints inspired by our travel and time spent in South Africa.
Our co-owner Kara Versage describes it best, “The majestic sunsets, colors and natural beauty of Africa inspired our 2018 collection. Vibrant oranges and reds, shades of pink, and intense golden yellows came together and made our heart skip a beat. We knew we wanted to bring those colors to life through our swimsuits. Bright colors, intricate patterns and vivid motifs create swimsuits that make you feel alive and have you dancing from sunrise to sunset.”
But did you know that Kara actually camped across the desert plains of South Africa and immersed herself in the culture as part of her research for this collection?! #TrueStory In fact, both of our co-owners are frequent travellers, so they constantly find inspiration for prints from different parts of the world they’ve visited. Because of this, we’re able to reach mermaids globally rather than focusing on one particular market.
The collection really focuses on sunset-inspired prints and colors, tribal details, fun and trendy tassels, and ethnic prints with vibrant pops of colors.
