Beach Bag/Fanny Pack
Leave your designer purses at home, it’s time to break out the fanny packs and beach bags! Jadelynn Brooke has an adorable party, party, party flamingo fanny pack that just screams spring break. If a fanny back isn’t your type, try a Simply Southern tote or a Patagonia backpack.
With a motto like Beach Vida Bling, you can tell that Amuse Society isn’t just another beach lifestyle brand. They describe themselves as channeling “a rock muse on a beach holiday” which gives this beach-inspired brand an edgier look. The eclectic mixture of beach, street, bohemian and rock and roll meshes together to create a collection of apparel that can be worn anywhere from the beach (of course!) to a concert or wherever else the wind blows you. Launched in just November 2014, the premier line of Amuse Society clothingis something to get excited about!
Far from ordinary, L*Space Swimwear has suits that include intricate details and fashion forward silhouettes. L*Space’s designer, Monica Wise, gets her inspirations through her travels around the world. Her designs can be described as sophisticated beach chic, glam surfer girl, and most definitely fashion-forward swimwear.
New to Glik’s last November, Amuse Society has since elevated to one of our most sought after brands for spring and summer. Co-Founders Mandy and Summer have created more than just a brand–they’ve built a lifestyle. We got the chance to ask them a few questions about fashion and Amuse Society. Check out their interview below.
How did you both get started in the fashion industry?
SUMMER: I grew up in a small beach town in the seventies and I only wore bikinis. That’s where my love of fashion and swimwear began. It wasn’t until High School that I decided I wanted to devote my education to it and then turn it into a career.
MANDY: Right after high school, I headed west to California and attended design school. I thought I wanted to be a buyer, but quickly realized I had a love for design. My parents mentored me from many miles away and taught me that beyond just having creativity I had to work hard, put in the hours, and work on building relationships. This was my ticket into the fashion world!
SUMMER & MANDY: We first met while working at Roxy back in late 90’s. Mandy was a swimwear designer and I was an assistant merchandiser. The two of us have been friends for over 15 years and we have a close group of girlfriends who have kept in close contact for the same amount of time as well.
How would you describe the Amuse girl?
SUMMER & MANDY: The Amuse girl is a “rock muse on a beach holiday.” She feminine, yet tough, effortlessly cool and sexy.
Where do you get your design inspiration?
SUMMER & MANDY: We are really inspired by the amazing women around us who are chasing their dreams and making things happen! That is why we formed and continue to form a Society of these women – they are people we want to surround ourselves with, who will contribute to making this journey successful and entertaining!
What are you favorite brands to wear? (Outside of Amuse of course!)
SUMMER: I am really simple at the end of day… I have my go-to jeans and basic knits. Lately I have been abusing my old school Nikes and wearing flip-flops a lot 🙂 When I need to turn it up, it’s always black and a shade of white. I never leave home without my leather motorcycle jacket within reach!
MANDY: I love mixing my high-end denim from brands like J Brand and IRO with my Amuse pieces as well as Vintage tops and caftans. I also love Annie Bing boots, Vanessa Mooney jewelry, and Janessa Leone hats!
With spring break approaching, it’s time to start thinking about the condition of our closets. Hot spring/summer fashion is already hitting Glik’s, and we couldn’t be more excited! Colors are getting brighter, and the weather will soon turn warmer. It’s time to begin phasing out our fall wardrobes, and we can start by checking out some of the hottest fashion trends for spring 2015. Break out the sunnies and enjoy the ride!
Pocket Tees and Colorblocking
These trends are still hot and you will be seeing them in brighter colors with new designs for spring.
Preppy Clothing for Women
Southern prep is leading the prep scene with brands like Vineyard Vines, Southern Shirt Company, and Southern Tide. The preppy gal is multi-dimensional wearing everything from oversized printed tees layered with puffer vests to classy wovens layered under knit tops with pearl accessories.
Anchor and nautical prints are still the perfect way to freshen your spring and summer wardrobe. Add in some Sperry Top-Siders and your look is golden.
White is in! And it seems the more the better. From jackets, vests, tops, and bottoms, you can style out this trend to fit your individual style.
The treasured fall cardigan will transition into spring as a lightweight kimono. Yeah. We’re excited about that too.
The fringe frenzy lives on this spring. You’ll find this trend in more than just your typical boho and festival inspired wear.
Boho fashion is thriving, and we are excited to see the new product for spring and summer. New brands like Amuse Society have taken this trend and infused it with other beachy elements to bring this fashion to a whole new level.
Long time best friends, Mandy Fry and Summer Rapp began their journey together recently when they launched their very own beach lifestyle brand, Amuse Society in November of 2014. With their brand mantra “Beach Vida Bling,” former Roxy and Billabong designers Mandy and Summer have created a fashion forward brand that encompasses a “beach meets street” and “bohemian meets rock and roll” look.
