I am a beach and bikini addict, I’ll admit it. My latest bikini brand obsession is SLATE SWIM. SLATE SWIM is a luxurious swimwear line from Los Angeles. These minimal, chic, sexy suits should be a staple in any woman’s swimwear collection. SLATE SWIM has a variety of silhouettes, made out of luscious soft fabrics. The Salt top and bottom in rust (featured) are so far my favorite. Not only am I obsessed with this shade of red, but the bottoms transform with the side straps that can be styled together for a minimal look, or apart for a sexy strappy look. The top is a perfect triangle that that show’s just enough. If you’re looking to break necks on the beach SLATE SWIM is what you need. I interviewed Jessica Liao about her experience being an emerging designer, and how SLATE SWIM came to be.
SLATE SWIM started when I realized there wasn’t swimwear on the market that I felt matched my style- nothing I was dying to wear to the beach, nothing that was the perfect fit. I knew that if I felt this way, there had to be other girls out there seeing the void in the market as well. I wanted to create those classic, staple pieces that women want to reach for every time- kind of like your favorite jeans and classic tee. Of course, there are the signature cuts and aesthetics that give it a unique edge as well. The brand really started on a leap of faith and endless hours of hard work.
The Slate Swim woman can be every woman. Someone who wants to feel comfortable in their body and flatter it. My pieces are designed to be classics that are simple enough to go with every woman’s style. She wears the suit, not the other way around. I’ve seen so many different types of women all around the world that wear Slate and each brings something special to it.
In 3 years Slate will be in every woman’s closet, and at every beach you go to. It’s gonna be every girl’s go-to, that classic that never gets old.
