This post is so fun to share with you all because it brings so many of my different passions together. I grew up a lover of water, oceans, lakes (and baths…) and swam competitively until my junior year of college when I put down the chlorine perfume and picked up the computer mouse. Girl’s gotta get a degree.
Still an admirer of swimwear I was so thrilled when I began working with the beautiful and amazingly talented designer Marysia Reeves (of Marysia Swim) a little over two years ago. We have partnered together during her fashion show seasons to create her lookbooks, invitations, promotional materials, a new website, tags, and packaging. I love Marysia’s visions for each line and it is always so exciting to see into the brain of another creative.
Last season I created a flamingo pattern for the resort collection that little feathered friend has been getting a lot of attention lately! The suit is being sold all over the world and has been featured in amazing online shopping sites like Moda Operandi and Shopbop, in Glamour Magazine (how bomb is that parrot necklace?!!) and even the stunning fashion blogger Aimee Song (of Song of Style) has sported the print we created for Marysia! I grew up addicted to Anthropologie so my mind was completely blown when Marysia shared with me last week that the custom suit she designed for Anthro with my flamingo print was the bestseller at anthropologie.com!!! The suit was also featured in the catalog but I haven’t been able to track a copy down. The suit has been getting fantastic reviews (!!) and you can purchase it here.
Marysia has some amazing new ideas brewing for the next season and I can’t wait to show you more collaborations! Thank you, my friend, for working with me on your creations!! Can’t wait for more!
