Office Spy: Bikinis, Brazil, and Britney Spears? with Tori S.
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.
