Fun swimwear line alert time: Say hello to Makena Collection.
If anyone’s on the lookout for a fun, functional, made in small batches swimwear line to checkout…here you go. Juliana’s creations stem from years of manufacturing and designing for various private label swimwear clients and are paired with her Brazilian roots and love for the active beach/water-loving lifestyle she leads on Maui. It’s really quite a perfect combo.
She designs suits to make women feel comfortable and confident (The suits I own are the perfect amount of cheeky for me and they always stay put surfing, or boogie boarding with my son on my back while he’s clinging to any fabric he can grab, as well.) They’re bold, yet simple, bright, beautiful, and supportive (hell yeah). And she makes each style in small batches. So if you score one, be pumped.
Style recs: I recommend grabbing the Pearl top/Bottom in any color or print, and the Makena One piece (*Both pictured above and were gifted)
Also, bonus points for the hangtags being printed on plantable paper. I just planted mine and will see what blooms.
And even more bonus points for feeling amazing whenever I rock one of her suits.
