KAIKINI

Saturday, December 31, 2016

Our last outfit shoot in Hawaii took place at the infinity pool at the Four Seasons Oahu. Nature was definitely on our side because we were blessed with an incredible, watercolor sunset that combined with the surface of the infinity pool, made for some unbelievable shots!

The Bikini:
This lovely, locally-made bikini is by Kaikini! Kaikini bikinis are all handcut and handmade in Kauai, Hawaii in the brand's studio + the fabrics and threads they use are also purchased from US manufacturers :) Kaikini also uses reusable, biodegradable, and/or recyclable materials for their packaging!

Their swimsuits are cut with a Brazilian fit and I think they are ultra-flattering and help bring out curves even for figures with straighter hips like mine. Not to mention, many of their styles are also reversible, making it super practical to only bring one swimsuit with you on vacation.

Kaikini was started by designer, Taryn Mari', who loved to buy bikinis but was upset by how quickly the ones she was buying would fall apart after only a few wears. Her husband suggested she start making her own, and despite having never sewn before, she took a leap of faith and after months of trial and error and spending her life savings on machines and materials, she taught herself how to make bikinis! Now Kaikini is Hawaii's largest swimwear manufacturer and they sell bikinis all over the world! ♥


Hope you enjoy the photos + Happy 2017!
xo, Jennifer
