BIKINI BIRD: Acacia recently launched their 2015 Collection, Tauhani, and it was CRAY! Animal prints, nudes + mesh, and even cheekier cuts, everyone can't wait for Acacia's November launch. Can you tell us about the inspiration behind this collection?
ACACIA: I am a sucker for classics, forever animal prints and nudes! And being from Hawaii its all about having a tropical inspired print. I have beautiful birds of paradise plants at my office that inspired our bird of paradise print. We also pulled inspiration from the sports world using a sporty oversized mesh for a sexy sporty new addition.
BB: What new styles are you most excited to launch from Tauhani?
A: I am most excited about our mesh pieces, our lingerie gone swim. And our Honolulu dress!
BB: You have both been in the swimwear for quite some time, how has the industry grown since your launch? Did you ever expect to be a leading brand in swim?
A: Yes we have grown every year. it is very exciting and we love our customers! Of course being a leading brand has always been a dream of ours and we are honored you are giving us that title. We are still growing each day and learning as we go.
BB: Acacia has always been a trendsetter and risk taker when it comes to styles and cuts. How do you ladies stay on top of the game?
A: We always have to think ahead. We are familiar with all of the trends but stay true to what we love and what is ACACIA.
BB: Any design regrets from past collections, and any styles you would love to bring back?
A: NO regrets we learn and grown from the past and I think our collections only get better with each year!
