KALi – Bikinis for Surfing


It`s no secret that I am a huge fan of KALi surfwear and designer/founder, Kelly Clarkson. With sick marketing shots featuring Kelly herself surfing, and some stunning product photography with real, babelicious Kiwi girls – this brand is no cheese and all surf. Kelly enlisted the illustrative talents of her surf mate, Jess Leitmanis after the two girls travelled and surfed their way around Central America, an experience which inspired the two unique prints created by Jess. I don`t know about you ladies, but I`d rather spend my hard-earned pesos on an artist/surfer collab and know I`m helping to support and promote a truly core, grassroots surf brand.

See below for stockists….

All KALi pieces come in Black and 2 different print colourways.
