This week in Bikinis – Acacia Swimwear
Acacia Swimwear is inspired by a love of travel and exotic beaches. Designers Naomi Newirth and Lyndie Irons are not only business partners but also best friends and the fun and enthusiasm that exists in their relationship is translated into the beautiful swimsuits that they create.
The brand’s signature style is a successful marriage between the perfect low-cut Italian bikini and the classic Brazilian fit that we all love. Acacia Swimwear is very well known for its intricately detailed designs, custom prints, buttery fabric, and seamless comfort, Acacia mixes effortless femininity with sophistication.
The 2015 collection, TAUHANI, embodies glamour and seduction. The Tahitian word Tauhani translates to ‘the caress of a woman’s skin’. Shot on Tetiaora in French Polynesia
where the clear waters brush the white sand. We’re completely in love with the campaign.
Naomi Newirth grew up in Maui and and began sewing her own bikinis at an early age, in her early twenties, Naomi travelled to Bali where she was introduced to a brave new world of design opportunities. She graduated with a fashion degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in 2008 and since the brand’s conception, Naomi has stayed true to her vision, taking swimwear to a new level.
Business partner, Lyndie Irons, was raised on the beaches of Southern California. Lyndie got her start as a swimsuit model at the age of 15, naturally Lyndie was inspired to create her own line and was determined to make her dream a reality. Lyndie lived in a bikini while traveling the globe and chasing waves with her husband, world champion surfer Andy Irons.
Best friends Naomi and Lyndie discovered that they shared the same vision in creating a chic new swim line, they joined as partners in the venture to launch Acacia Swimwear. The brand has since lived up to its name for bringing back the edge with smaller cuts.
Each collection is largely inspired by Naomi and Lyndie’s beach lifestyle, travels, and Native American heritage, which is displayed through tropical and tribal motifs.
Naomi and Lyndie have a knack for mixing neutral tones with vibrant pops of color, as well as color blocking with the use of crochet, making the collection bold and unique.
Acacia Swimwear has expanded to include resort wear, a children’s line that is too cute, named Acacia Swimwear Honey.
