What we love most about this swimwear brand is the story behind the beautiful prints. You are wearing a piece of Haitian art. Our pick for today is the Birds of Paradise reversible string bikini and one piece. (Featured in the image above Photo Credit: Yanvalou)

A nice sporty swimwear, the Parrot Fish Sport.
”Designed by Jamaican-born, NYC-based, stylist and life+style blogger, Camesha Powell, the 2016 collection was inspired by beauties under the sea – colorful corals, exotic parrot fish, and the unique starfish were the visual references for its exclusive prints and elegant colors. The brand is dedicated to the preservation of the beautiful beaches and coral reefs of the Caribbean and donates 10% proceeds from the profit of all online sales to the non-profit organization, Jamaica Environmental Trust, to aid their environmental protection efforts.” – https://www.laposhe.com
The colours and unique designs of this Jamaican based brand sold us. We pick the Jaded Cover up and Buena Vista two piece.
”YC is the brainchild of Jamaican based fashion designer, James Black. James Black is a self taught designer and has lived in Jamaica all her life. All pieces are unique and exclusive to the brand and are handmade in the heart of Kingston, Jamaica. Pieces do not have a long shelf life, are rarely re-stocked and are intended to be limited so if you like it , buy it now!” – http://shopyc.bigcartel.com
We like that this brand offers you options with reversible swimwear. Becca is our swimwear pick.
”DKLYPSE was founded by a young local from Nassau, Bahamas by the name of Kristen Cartwright in June 2013. In Kristen’s first year at college, she knew that swimsuits were her calling and she has been at it ever since. Kristen has designed over countless suits and has made Dklypse known all over The Bahamas.” – http://www.dklypse.com
Keva by Keva Johnson
Our finale pick and a favourite on the list is the Entice swimsuit sold separately but so good together.
”Born in Brooklyn, NY, raised in Miami, FL and of Jamaican decent, Keva has always had an innate desire to become a trendsetter. Inspired by her grandmother’s ambitions to become a fashion designer and with a supportive family, Keva pursued her childhood dream of creating ensembles for Barbie®. Her day-to-day styling of the mini-fashion icon ultimately ignited her individual identity and allowed her to flourish into a full-fledged fashionista in high school. Her undeniable knack for fashion and constant hailing for her personal style affirmed her talents as she was voted “Best Dressed” by her peers’ senior year.” – http://kevabykevaj.com
