We are so excited to be apart of NY based online retailer Salamander. We will be proudly stocked alongside industry heavy weights such as Acacia Swimwear, Indah and Tori Praver.

Founder 29 year old -  Alena a New York native sat down to give us a little insight into her world.

Can you explain in a few words the inspiration that pushed you to start your own business?A: I deeply appreciate and admire the beach chic style that has become very popular over last couple of years. I think that swimwear goes deeper and deeper into our everyday wardrobe. So I wanted to create a store where the ultimate beach babe can put together her unique style and be able to express herself. Therefore I’m in a constant search of young ambitious swimwear brands with a cool edge to offer my customers something no other retailers can – much more personal touch in finding bikini and swimsuits that goes along with your lifestyle. 

Where is your favourite beach? 
A: Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Favourite pieces from our collection?
A:I’m in love with the palm print! I find the bralette construction of the Deadmans Bikini Top is oh, so flattering and functional at the same time. Not to mention the Stradbroke Onepiece – probably the most amazing thong onepiece I’ve ever seen! 
Whats the future for shop salamander? 
A:I’m planning on opening a boutique store soon and maybe come up with our own bikini line, who knows ;)
