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.
Meet the third muse in our ‘Meet our Mind Bali Soul’ series, Charlotte D’Alessio! With just one look, Charlotte, just 18 years old, won us over with her bronzed beauty and piercing green eyes. We knew right away she would embody every bit of our Mind Bali Soul collection and be a perfect muse.
This shoot was our first time working with Charlotte, and it was one of our favorites for a few reasons!
Now… a shoot with a green eyed babe and bikinis wouldn’t be the same without a corgi puppy. We invited Miss Chibi to join the mix. Emily Wang is the master mind behind Chibi’s photogenic talents and not to mention that she gets to cuddle her up every day!
Talking about bedroom goals… Charlotte’s white, dreamy bedroom was just the perfect location to capture her and the Mind Bali Soul collection.
Curious to see how a Kailua SL babe spends a typical July day? We followed around our babes Melia, Michelle and Cat in order to see how they spend their summer days under the sun. Everything from exploring Kailua, to eating fresh goodness at Nalu Health Bar & Cafe, to shopping around our Kailua store with the besties, to finally ending the day with a kayak & stand up session, our girls make sure to do it in style with their San Lorenzo ‘kinis in hand.
And just like that, Miami Swim Week 2016 is wrapped! This year we debuted our newest collection Le Romantique. Our ambition was to create a powerful experience, a fantasy of infinite travel with french infusion. Envision a girl with a free soul embarking on her travels through Europe and her craving for wanderlust is what drives her passion. Weren’t able to make it? No problem. Keep reading to feel like you were sitting front row at our show & sipping drinks from coconuts at our cocktail party.
We want you all to be able to experience the aloha we felt at this show. You can expect to feel the translated passion from the artisans that handmade each and every ‘kini in the collection. Le Romantique is an ode to the creative spirit. Needless to say, our SL babes absolutely rocked these looks on the runway.
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.
We searched the hills of Los Angeles and Orange County to find four killer muses for our Mind Bali Soul collection, who truly embody San Lorenzo Bikinis and the collection. To kick off our Muse Series, we shot the beautiful and ever so talented Julia Friedman in four looks worthy of the pages of Sports Illustrated. Julia has been with the collection since Miami Swim Week 2015, where she first debuted her flawless runway skills in our fashion show. Get to know our muse more, as she went in-depth about modeling, bikinis and her plans for the future.
