I cannot believe Coachella is around the corner… That being said, I have been loving all looks that involve festival vibes. When I laid eyes on this off the shoulder crochet top from Swell, I became obsessed with how many ways I could wear this piece.
Only have a quick weekend to get away? Luckily the SWELL marketing intern scouted out the best place to have the ultimate stay-cation in Southern California!
Where to stay:
Founded in December of 1926 off the coast of La Jolla, California, the La Valencia hotel is best known for its spacious rooms, decadent restaurants, and breath taking sunsets. The La Valencia is the perfect place to kick your feet up and enjoy the sound of waves crashing on the Pacific coast. Not only does the La Valencia have an itinerary of endless activities and fun including: an ocean view swimming pool, live music, in-suite spa treatments and services; They also have beautiful architecture like the signature hand painted murals.
Meet Your Maker | Pacific & Driftwood Designer and CEO Christian Cox Takes Swimwear "Beyond The Beach"
SWELL: Tell us a little about Pacific & Driftwood….what sparked you to start creating swimwear?
Christian Cox (CC): I was working as the Associate Designer for a luxury womenswear (RTW) brand when the thought crossed my mind to start my own swimwear co. I had gone on Christmas vacation to the Caribbean and before heading out of town I was trying to find a new bikini. I didn’t really love anything I was finding and wanted something with a little more edge, something fresh, and something no one else would be wearing. So I came up with my own design, and then cut and sewed it in my bedroom.
