From the ocean to the office and back again, this bikini beauty is constantly doing it all…it’s pretty wild to think that our Roxy swim designer Tori S. has one of the cleanest spaces in the whole joint. We’re guessing that’s her secret to success in making the best and brightest in swimwear every season.
We spied on Roxy Swim Merchandiser Jordan N. not too long ago and have been dying to spy on Tori since. Her stories always make us laugh, her designs keep us coming back for more, and we realized after hearing about her trip to Brazil and watching her case of mistaken identity we must share this with all of the Roxy girls out there as well!
So we tracked down the beautiful blonde and asked her a few questions:
Question: What’s the day-to-day life of a swim designer look like here at Roxy? (we’ve noticed you like to keep things quite tidy…is that how you stay sane in your busy daily regime?)
Tori: hahahah, yes I can’t get anything done unless my space in clean so I can focus, so you will notice that our area is a bit spotless… Depending on the season we are working on my days are spent going to fittings, sketching for the new season, making color comments, meetings and more meetings.
Q: What is your most favorite NEW arrival (bikini, of course)? And what other pieces would you style it with?
T: My favorite new arrival would be our Native Ski orange crochet tiki tri swim top and Brazilian string bottom… I usually just throw this on with a pair of denim shorts, when I’m beach or pool bound.
Q: When traveling to Brazil and Argentina, what were you most inspired by?
T: Mostly by the fabrics and trims in both places.
Q: Tell us about your case of mistaken identity (are you the new Ms. Spears?).
T: Soooooo we were down in Rio shopping and we just happen to be staying at the same hotel as Miss Brittany Spears…There was a huge crowd outside the hotel and so when I leaned over the rooftop and waved they thought I was her, (prob cause of my super blond hair) we got it on video it was hysterical…
Q: How and where do you get your best design inspiration?
T: My best inspiration comes from traveling I would say…Going to different countries and seeing all the beautiful fabrics, and how people in the those cities dress… I love how everyone always has their own twist on how they like to wear their swimsuits, if that’s mixing and matching or tying your straps in a new way you’re always learning new things from the people you meet and see.
