Designer swimwear label Vitamin A has become the new definition for California-cool luxury.
"Best Swimwear Designer of 2008," Amahlia Stevens is the California-native behind the Vitamin A swimwear brand that perfectly connects the sex appeal of Brazilian bathing suits with chic European style. Vitamin A is the result of a California girl's time spent studying abroad.
Created using the best materials, the minimal bikinis combine fine Italian hardware as embellishments that make them the perfect thing to wear on the sexiest beaches around the world, from Hawaii to Fiji.
Since its debut in 2000, the Vitamin A line has expanded from its signature classic black bikini styles to an array of colorful swimwear options, as well as cover-ups and resortwear, perfect for any warm weather occasion near sparkling waters.
Vitamin A has not only developed a following amongst celebrities with perpetually beach-ready bodies like Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, but can also be found draped on the models of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The just right sized bikinis are made to be mixed and matched to flatter the wearer's style and shape. Not only that, but the bikinis are made to be functional, as well as fashionable, staying put even when in the water.
Now based in Laguna Beach, luxurious Vitamin A bathing suits are sold at high-end retailers around the world, including Barney's New York, Henri Bendel, Harvey Nichols, and the original Calypso boutique in St. Barth.
