Introducing Moonlight Mele

For last week’s photo shoot, we skipped the postcard beaches and found our way to a tiny beach tucked away behind one of Oahu’s swankiest neighborhoods. We traded crowds and sweltering sunshine for quieter shores and shady spots and here, we found the perfect place to shoot our newest collection, Moonlight Mele.

At San Lorenzo Bikinis, our signature approach to swimwear is a ‘less is more’ attitude, meaning we’re always aiming for the tiniest tanlines possible! (Any lover of the Caged Thong or V Knot will vouch for that!) However for this collection, we thought of the beach babes who feel that sometimes, only ‘more is more’. For Moonlight Mele, we reimagined our favorite styles with a little extra something – extra coverage.


Look familiar? We couldn’t resist bringing back the knotted detailing of the High Neck Interlace top (one of our signature styles) but for the Knotted Strap Brief bottoms, we kept comfort and coverage on our minds and were a little more generous with the fabric.


Why is it such a struggle to find a ‘kini that is a showstopper but also gives your buns a little break from the sun? The search ends here with the new Bow Back Brief. Call us classic but we’re head over heels for White.  


Lush greens and cloudy weather match the collection’s moodier colorways such as Moonlight. Don’t get us wrong, we love sun kisses and tan lines but sometimes, a beach babe needs a little time to cool off in the shade.


The Sienna colorway first graced us with its presence in the Ilha de Coco collection and has been turning heads ever since! As an ode to those ethereal seaside sunsets, bringing it back was a no-brainer.


We’re all about true blues, which is why we’re so stoked about the new Azure colorway! Can we take a second to rave about the way it makes our model’s eyes pop? Blue-eyed babes, this is YOUR color!


The ocean is a girl’s best friend but let’s be honest: when it comes to water sports or choppier days at sea, it can be a battle to keep the waves from stealing your ‘kini. (When we say we love ‘minimal coverage’, we definitely don’t mean THAT minimal!) One final plus about the Moonlight Mele collection? Whether you’re dazed on shore or shredding some waves, these pieces are here to stay! Explore the Moonlight Mele collection, available exclusively online.

Take a Tour Around our Ala Moana Store

Rise and Shine! Just another day in paradise for our Oahu Brand Ambassadors Chloe and Kara. We spent the day doing a complete takeover for our Ala Moana store to see a day in the life, which let me tell you was so rad! It included everything from eating at Cafe Lani, to playing around at our store in Ala Moana, to ending the day with an afternoon surf sesh. Lets dive in and take a closer look at how exactly our babes spent the day!

First thing’s first, food! The girls started off their day by heading to the Ala Moana mall to fuel up with breakfast at our favorite cafe in the mall. From lattes to giant parfaits, the girls truly indulged! Cute outfits √ Hungry bellies √ San Lorenzo swimmies √ Mind Bali Soul nail wraps √ and they’re ready to go.




Shop the Bone Braided Thong and the Shell Interlace Monokini

Once the girls were fueled and full, they headed to our store at the Ala Moana mall to do some much needed shopping. Before getting too deep into the shopping they decided to snap a few pics in front of the banana leaf wall! Pssssst, next time you are in the store, make sure to snap a selfie in front of the wall and tag #SLAlaMoana 😉



Shop the Bali Hai Caged Thong and the Amethyst Cut Out Wrap

The girls went through the racks dressing each other in their favorite San Lorenzo ‘kinis and cute coverups. There was nothing but smiles from this duo when we followed them around the store. They were absolutely LOVING the newest Mind Bali Soul collection, which is fully stocked! We can’t think of a better way to spend the day than shopping at your favorite store with your bestie.



Shop the Rose Quartz Crop and the Onyx Cross Back Monokini


Shop the Onyx Cross Back Monokini

From a one piece to a bodysuit, the Cross Back Monokini in Onyx looks adorable underneath the Faithfull the Brand Theory pants. We love how she styled this look!




After twirling through the racks and playing in the San Lorenzo store, the girls headed to the beach for a sunset paddle. Chloe decided to go with our Wetsuit Monokini in Kalea (which is on sale at all locations + online) while Kara opted for the Sport Brief in Bone, so they’d be feelin’ sporty and comfortable for their surf. Ready. Set. Let’s go surfing!



Shop the Kalea Wetsuit Monokini (which is on SALE btw) and Bone Sport Brief



And that’s a wrap. After an amazing surf, the girls took us to their favorite spot to catch the sunset, China Wall. Just another day in the life for those in Ala Moana!




Shop the Serpent V Knot and the Bone High Neck

Inside our Shoot with Scarlett Leithold

Last week we had the pleasure of working with one of our ultimate girl crushes, Scarlett Leithold, for one of the most stunning Mind Bali Soul shoots to date. With her killer bikini bod,  gorgeous looks and beautiful personality, she was nothing short of perfection throughout our day of shooting.


Shop the Chakra Crop Hipster



 Shop the Pura Desa Cut Out Wrap

Working with such a special model, we knew our shoot location had to bring the heat. We wanted to keep the killer swimwear vibes, while mixing it up and going outside our usual beach setup.  The first thing that came to mind was to rent an Airbnb. We found a beautiful home in the Hollywood Hills that brought a Mediterranean feel through the stunning rooms and structures of the home. From the stucco white walls, to the bright blue accents, to the eclectic decor and pillows, this house was everything we could have asked for in a location.

Shop the Blossom Braided Thong

It takes a team to create this type of magic at a photoshoot. We had our a-list photographer Derren Versoza  being the lens and Leo Cabal  on video duty. We had the ultimate makeup and hair guru by our side, Suzie K., who transformed every idea we had into a reality. And of course there’s the rockstar team from San Lorenzo, making sure our vision stays true to form. We wanted an elegant, simplistic and boho vibe, ensuring that the natural beauty of our model and the swimwear didn’t get swallowed by the environment surrounding them.

Mind Bali Soul: Part II Release

Last month we released our much anticipated Resort 2016 collection, Mind Bali Soul, which made it’s debut at Miami Swim Week 2015. We were swimming with excitement when the line finally dropped! It’s one of our best to date and has been flying off the racks of our stores. We knew the collection was going to be one to remember, so we decided there was only one way to make Mind Bali Soul even more of a success. A second drop with three new styles and a restock of all previously released looks, happening this Saturday, 4/16!


You may have seen a sneak peak at one of our runway shows or our recent email blast 🙂 We want to officially introduce you to the three new styles that will be joining the Mind Bali Soul family this weekend. The first is our Cut Out Wrap, the perfect look for all you jet setters and tropical travelers. With a unique twisting wrap top and higher cut cheeky bottoms, all the mermen will be turning their heads when you rep this little number.

The second style releasing this weekend is our Crop Hipster, a beach babe certified crop top with fuller coverage bottoms. Imagine yourself drinking poolside in this killer number.

Mind Bali Soul Beach Brunch

Sandy skin, salty hair and a collection of bikinis too beautiful to keep from the world. Lost in a dreamland with our Oahu babes in the best of our MIND BALI SOUL bikinis.
Seeing my other fellow brand ambassadors, I knew I was in for a treat.

SHA_9666EDITEDI peered at our setting for the day. Overlooking the ocean, our bohemian lunch was beyond stunning.  A beautifully crafted wood table was perched on the sand, surrounded with rustic pillows and adorned with fresh flowers and greenery.

The waves washed along the shore and the sun was perfectly warm with just enough shade for us to sit under. It felt surreal, as if we had been transported to the setting of a movie. I grabbed a quick hug with all my girls before sitting down for lunch.
A family of our own, we sat around the table excited for the delicious meal before us. Banzai Sushi made its way around the table, the platter covered in a rainbow of seafood.
It was beyond delicious! We quickly piled our plates – between bites we were catching up, enjoying each others company to the fullest.


 Our stomachs were stuffed. Between the amount of tasty food we ate and the goofy jokes Alyssa told our tummies were hurting.




Shop the Rose Quartz High Neck Interlace


We were full and couldn’t manage to wait another second for what was next. The bikinis!

The time had come to slip into the new MIND BALI SOUL collection. I was immediately in love as I grabbed my new bikini – the material soft and the color so bright! Aqua blue with a white mandala design, it was exactly my style.



Shop the Mandala Sport Brief

We were eager to put the new suits on, and changed in to them as fast as we could once we received them. I took a step back and admired the beautiful collection, on a group of such stunning ladies. Before I knew it I was grabbing Michelle’s hand, pulling her into the ocean with me.

Later, we returned to our girls, dancing on the beach, running through the waves – we couldn’t get enough. We were living in our dream world. The sun was setting and I was happily tired, my soul overjoyed.
I sat back down at our little table and watched the day wined down. The sound of the ocean calmed me. I was surrounded by my loves. In the final moments we sat in silence, taking in the greatness of the day, in our new San Lorenzo Bikinis.


A true adventure, we will always have this day to look back on, and I am forever grateful for that.
Love your fellow mermaid.
[Some of the new styles seen on this photoshoot will be available in stores & online VERY soon! Cant find your favorite ones you’ve seen recently? We will be restocking soon! ]
