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.
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.
If you are a bikini brand, there are two major swim launches you look forward to every year. The first is the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit launch. The second, and equally exciting, is Surfing Magazine’s annual Swimsuit Issue. We were lucky enough to have our Resort 2016 collection, Mind Bali Soul, featured in the publication this year. We want to share with you the merbabe magic that happened behind the camera with these tropic photo treasures.
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!
Oahu, it’s time to cancel your plans Saturday night and join us at Buho Cantina for our Mind Bali Soul Release Party! Hosted by Los Angeles models Cait & Shannon Barker, the night will include a runway show for the new collection, music by DJ Godiva, nail wrap stations and more.
Southern California natives, the Barker sisters have been taking over the states with their stunning looks and mega fanbase. From modeling, to hosting events, to being the it-girls of Instagram, there’s nothing these two Cali babes can’t do. They will be keeping the party going all night long with the help of DJ Godiva. Make sure to stick around for a night of dancing, drinking and SL fun!
We will also be announcing the date of our second Mind Bali Soul drop, as well as showcasing the added styles being released! From intricate interlace detailing to flattering cutouts and wraps, these new styles are going to make you swoon. There will even be a giveaway, where you’ll have a chance to win the soon to be released Interlace One Piece, which was featured on E!News at Miami Swim Week 2015.

The last few hours leading up to the catwalk can be both exciting and overwhelming. As the stage is getting prepared and chairs are being lined up, it is much like the calm before the storm. On the outside, everything is quiet and tranquil . But behind the scenes, models, hair & makeup artists, designers, and stylists are hard at work putting the final touches on their collections before they’re presented to the world. The process of getting ready for the final moment where MIND . BALI . SOUL took the stage, involved hair stylists spending time braiding and weaving traditional balinese flowers into the models hair, makeup artists painting the model’s faces to look effortless and naturally beautiful , and stylists making sure the bright and exotic prints of Bali fit the models bodies perfectly. We felt a special connection with our whole team, and shared great conversations and laughs as we got ready to take the stage. We’re so thankful for everyone’s hard work and the part everyone played in bringing MIND . BALI . SOUL to life. It was definitely a night to remember!
And just like that our first solo show at Miami Swim Week is over! Our collection MIND BALI SOUL was a stand out on the catwalk. Inspired by everything Balinese, the luscious fabrics, unique models, and fresh flowers made our vision come to life. For the next half hour the audience was transported out of Miami and onto the islands of Indonesia. Now we know all our SL babes couldn’t be in Miami, so we want to take you back in time to re-experience this magical moment with us.
We are still obsessing over the opening moment of the show– a vision of sunset and silhouette, the models moved like naturals dancing to traditional Balinese music.
