Q: What is your muse for this collection?
Our muse for Resort ’19 is a bit sporty, while still being feminine.
Q: I notice you incorporated clothing into your collection, but it wasn’t typical swimsuit coverups. It was more cool and laidback casual wear. What is your inspiration for this part of the collection?
I always try to design styles that are versatile enough to be casual or dressed up. For our ready-to-wear category, I wanted to do a modern twist on Vintage Hawaii (an homage to our home) and my take on the “mumu.” The Resort collection is eclectic with a very retro feel.
Q: What are some of your favorite swimwear trends this season?
It’s funny, I don’t really follow trends, but sometimes the collection just ends up nailing a trend. I just do what I love and try to add something new each season. I am especially loving the matte black and gold hardware we introduced in the Resort collection.
Q: How do you want everyone to feel when they wear ACACIA?
I want everyone to feel sexy, confident, and comfortable when they wear ACACIA.
