TORI PRAVER in Honolulu Magazine June 2013

Posted: Jun 28 2013

We are thrilled to see one of our favorite designers and models, Maui native Tori Praver, be featured in this month’s issue of Honolulu Magazine. She also noted us as one of her favorite blogs! Thanks Mama! We can’t wait to see your 2014 collection. Here are some higlights from her Q&A:

“Your new SS13 Tori Praver Swimwear collection looks amazing! What were its inspirations?
The collection is titled Ventus Scopis, which means “wind swept” in Latin. The name is based on my life, which includes lots of traveling and wandering at the loving mercy of the open road. It features rich earth tones, such as deep purple, sandy brown and sea glass.

And the gorgeous patterns?
The prints are photographs my fiancé took of beaches in the night, which we silk-screened onto the suits.

What’s next for your line?
My 2014 collection will debut my first ready-to-wear line, which will include easy pieces to throw over your bikini, such as a great kimono top, harem pants, a flowy maxi skirt and a crop top. They’ll be offered in a solid, neutral color and two of the prints from my swim collection. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while and am very excited about!

Tori’s Faves:

Fashion designers: Right now I’m loving Isabel Marant and Rodarte, and I will always be a huge fan of Balenciaga.

Island designers: Hula Hoops Maui for gorgeous jewelry and Samudra for cute bags.

Style blogs: I love bikinibird.com, and model and photographer Alexandra Spencer’s blog, 4thandbleeker.com.”
