Visit our newest store at Kamakana Ali’i

ALOHA Oahu Bikini babes! Let us take you back to our Grand Opening event on February 17, 2017.This will be our 6th store on the island of  Oahu. It’s located in the new Ka Makana Ali’i mall in Kapolei (between KoKo & Palenki and Skechers). We are obsessed with its wide open space, classic white walls, and floor to ceiling windows, which sets the tone for a minimal atmosphere that beautifully showcases our bikinis.

Introducing our Spring Crush: TIA BLANCO

Meet our SPRING CRUSH, Tia Blanco. After following the surf goddess’ journey around the world, we knew this free-spirit was the embodiment of our Resort 2017 collection, Hawaiian Palms.

DSC_3234_REDIT-1Our latest collection was inspired by the unexpected discovery of paradise – whether it be through journeying to unfamiliar lands or simply by noticing something new in a place you know and love.

“Every time I come back to the islands, I fall in love all over again with the sport of surfing and the Hawaiian Ocean,” tells Tia.

The life of a pro-surfer is not for the faint-hearted… but that’s not to say it isn’t fun! In the constant pursuit of the perfect set, it’s safe to say Tia is a bit of a nomad. (She JUST got back from a surf trip in Tofino, Canada!) Thankfully, we were able to steal her for a day to do this photoshoot! The North Shore swells looked huge to us so we stayed on the sand. Of course, Tia was barely fazed but nevertheless, we saved our surf shots for the calmer waves in Waikiki.

An Aloha State of Mind – Strapless Knotted V Brief in Blue Hawaii & Pacific

Tia’s embodiment of Hawaiian Palms collection goes beyond her love of surfing. The 19 year old shows us that sometimes, paradise is what we make it. As a well-known vegan AND a devoted yogi, we learned from Tia that we can create our own paradises for ourselves by doing what we love. Though she and her boyfriend, Colt, travel often, they always make sure to set aside time to take care of themselves. Tia tells us that cooking healthy, vegan meals keeps her connected to her state of being, no matter where she is on the globe!

Of course, we couldn’t do a photoshoot and not catch Tia doing what she does best. We hopped in the water and Tia showed us a thing or two about taming waves. With the Waikiki strip as our backdrop, we were feeling pretty lucky!
