Q: How was the journey getting to Raja Ampat?

A: It was easily one of the most extreme adventures I’ve ever been on – we arrived at night in the pitch black with only the stars to guide us!

Q: You shot in so many beautiful spots! How did you travel around while you were there?

A: We Kayaked! The beautiful islands you see in the photos are close enough together to paddle from one to the other – it was risky though! We had all our gear and belongings with us and were always mindful we could tip over!

Q: What was your favorite thing about your time there?

Meet NATIVA – our 2020 Resort Collection

You asked – we’re answering!

Q: What is different about this collection?

N A T I V A is a representation of the original San Lorenzo Bikinis Brazilian roots.  We originated in South America, and the Amazon rainforest is one of our first inspirations in building the collection. We wanted to bring these true origins to light by giving you new, bold and wild colors and prints, including animal and exotic floral prints. 

Each bikini is hand-made in Peru, all reversible, and all styles are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. 

Q: What is the idea behind the shoot?

We wanted to find a location that was very tropical, and included lots of different color palates to bring out the vivid prints and solids from this collection.  

After a lot of scouting and research, we found the perfect spot in Hollywood Hills.  This home features a tropical garden, unique nooks and finishes, and an overall perfect vibe that matched the mood we wanted. 

To find this perfect tropical oasis in city was a dream come true. 

Q: Who did you work with on the shoot?

Juliana Herz, our model, was the perfect fit.  Her look is exotic and her personality vivacious, captivating our ideal tropical look and the vibes we wanted. 

The shoot was captured by photographer Benjamin Smith, and videographer Charles Guinto.

Stylist Kailtyn Bone did an amazing job accessorizing and, and hair and makeup was done by Jill Collwell.

Q: Will the prices & quality remain the same?

Yes! Our Nativa collection fabrics will be the same as the buttery-soft, silky lycra fabric you are familiar with from previous Resort collections –  at the most affordable prices we’ve ever offered!

Prices will be between $65 and $75 a piece, and less than $150 for a one piece. 

We are very meticulous with our design process and fabric sourcing, and this collection is sure to be like anything you’ve ever seen before. 

Q: Where can I purchase this collection?

The collection is available exclusively on sanlorenzohawaii.com 

Oahu – Ala Moana Center, Haleiwa, Kailua, Ka Makana Ali’i
Maui – Paia

Newport Beach
Manhattan Beach

Q: Will any of the #SLNativa styles be available in extended sizing? 

Yes.  For this collection, we wanted to add an additional size – XL! The size run for #SLNativa is XS – XL, and includes multiple coverage options from our classic thong belt, to high waist options. 

Our goal in the future is to have this size run available in all collections and capsule collections. 

Island Living in Island GLOW

San Lorenzo Bikinis had the amazing opportunity to work with Maui based photographer, Karim Iliya. Karim travels to breath-taking Tonga for 3 months out of each year to capture the humpback whales who migrate there as the weather gets colder.

He was joined by Models Charyse & Brianna who wore bikinis from our newest collection – Island GLOW – click here to shop the collection!

How gorgeous is our NEW Triangle Sport Top & Belt Brief Bottoms in Coconut? Such a fun, sporty cut, perfect for surfing, swimming, and diving! – click here to shop the top & here to shop the bottoms.

Another brand new style from our Island GLOW collection is our Retro Strap top & Retro Short set – shown here in our ‘Mango’ colorway – click here to shop the top & here to shop the bottoms.

Tonga’s calm shallow waters look like something out of a dream!

But it’s the underwater scenes that really blew us away! Can you imagine being this close to one of these majestic animals?

Since Karim has gone out to see the whales so often, (and we’ve only ever seen them from the shore) we understandably had a few questions to ask!

Q: You grew up in the Middle East and Asia, but what brought you to the islands? Why did you begin spending 1/4 of your year shooting whales? Was it a particular experience that drew you to them?

A: My primary work is underwater photography and video with a focus on whales and documenting their lives. To me they are the most interesting subjects to photograph underwater, very rewarding to photograph, and are highly intelligent with dynamic behavior.

Q: What was the overall mood and weather like in Tonga the day you shot San Lorenzo in the water?

A: The weather can vary quite a lot throughout the day when you are on an island in the middle of the ocean! Sunny, cloudy, then stormy – you get the full spectrum.

Q: How did you find the models, and what were they most excited about that day? Did they have any feedback on the bikinis they wore? Were they a little anxious or scared to be around the whales?

A: One of them is my girlfriend, and the other is a friend of ours. Charyse, my girlfriend, has spent over 100 days, and hundreds of hours in the water with the humpbacks so there was no anxiety there. They thought the bikinis were very comfortable!

Q: How many whales did you see that day or was it over 2-3 days?

A: We saw two whales, a mother and her calf. Some days we see more, some days less.

Q: Lastly, what was your favorite shot and part of the day?

A: It’s a shot of Charyse relaxing just beneath the surface (below) the colors were beautiful and the place I enjoy most is being underwater.

& here is the video that Karim and the models got that day! Doesn’t Tonga just look like a dream??
