Brand Spotlight: Lovers + Friends
July 2, 2013

Currently loving: Lovers + Friends.
New to SWELL, Lovers + Friends is made for the fun-seeker, the adventurous, and for the girl who knows what she wants, and isn’t afraid to wear it. For the girl with the work hard-play harder mindset. Its strong aesthetic is made up of equal parts aloha, edge, pretty, playful, wild and whimsy. In short, it’s a collection for the open & style-minded. Born in LA, the collection walks the line between bohemian and polished, transitioning from Santa Monica to the downtown scene seamlessly.
