Lauren, what made you want to team up with Vitamin A to create your first swim capsule collection?
Lauren: Vitamin A is all about the idea that, “sustainability is sexy,", and they are serious about taking steps to reduce their environmental footprint. Using recycled materials for their swimwear is a huge part of this. Their dedication to using high quality materials and producing locally in California is very important to me. They also make a point to celebrate the power and beauty of all women. This is reflected in their timeless and classic swimwear design that I have been a long-time fan of. All of their core values are ones that I agree with. Because of this I was excited to partner with Vitamin A and support their vision.
During the design process, what was it like working with Amahlia and the Vitamin A team?
Lauren: Working with Amahlia and the Vitamin A team was great because we clicked instantly. We had a similar vision for the line and all of our collaborative ideas and designs fit together. The final results of this capsule collection truly reflect this synergy.
Describe the girl you picture wearing the pieces you designed for Vitamin A + Lauren B.
Lauren: I feel like any girl can wear these pieces since they’re cut to be flattering for all body types. I really want women to feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful in their own bodies and in my suits.
