Mi­ami Swim

Athleisure - - News -

If you were a fan of MTV's re­al­ity show "The Hills", then you know and love this brunette stun­ner, Au­d­rina Par­tridge. She had an easy sense of style and could al­ways rock a bikini! Af­ter the show ended in 2010, like many of her co-stars, she went on to be­ing in her own spin-off show, other TV op­por­tu­ni­ties and this month she launched Prey Swim for Re­sort 2017 at Mi­ami Swim! We took a mo­ment to talk to this busy mom about what she's been up to, her col­lec­tion and how she keeps it all to­gether.

ATH­LEISURE MAG: It's not a sur­prise to us that you launched a swim line, how did it all come to­gether?

AU­D­RINA PAR­TRIDGE: Every­time I trav­eled I was in­spired by so many things and my lens would cap­ture it! It didn't mat­ter if I was in Mex­ico, South Korea or Costa Rica - there were so many things to see. I'm in­spired by col­ors, tex­tures and pat­terns. As I con­tinue my col­lec­tions, they will have an el­e­ment of what in­spired me or what I ex­pe­ri­enced while there.

AM: We know you love the beach - what are your fa­vorites?

AP: I love Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Mex­ico. Aus­tralia has beau­ti­ful beaches in its Gold Coast and By­ron Bay. Heaven on Earth can be found in Bora Bora!

AM: What is the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind your line and what can we ex­pect from Prey Swim?

AP: I'm a Bohemian girl and love that life­style. I also love earth tones and pat­terns. Even though I have never been to Morocco (and re­ally want to go) - it felt so nat­u­ral to start here as my in­spi­ra­tion. I also love that a lot of the hard­wear that we use in the line is ac­tual shark teeth on the end of strings! I love the ocean, my hus­band (Aus­tralian ex­treme sports star, Corey Bo­han) surfs and I love sharks as I feel that they are not our en­e­mies and that we need them!

I also feel that my line is tran­si­tional as it can be worn from day to night de­pend­ing on how you pair it! I want ev­ery woman who wears this line to feel good as th­ese pieces will hug you in the right places!

The line has three col­lec­tions: The Mar­rakech Col­lec­tion (Sum­mer 2017) fo­cus­ing on Prey Swim's sig­na­ture styles and is a nod to Mar­rakech in the 60's and 70's, as well as The Rolling Stones, The Riviera Col­lec­tion (Pre-Fall 2017), which show­cases the ef­fort­less style of The French Riviera in the 50's and 60's, and The Joya Col­lec­tion (Re­sort 2018), which is in­spired by Peru - the mecca of boho fash­ion in the 70's.

AM: What does it mean to you to show at this sea­son's Mi­ami Swim Week?

AP: I was so ex­cited to show Prey Swim to Mi­ami Swim Week! This is some­thing I dreamed of when plan­ning our ini­tial brand de­but, so to be show­ing here so soon af­ter launch­ing is a dream come true. There are so many amaz­ing swim de­sign­ers show­ing col­lec­tions that I have been a fan of for quite some time, so to be show­ing my line in their com­pany, as a fel­low swim de­signer, is an honor. Mi­ami is such an amaz­ing city with so many in­cred­i­ble cul­tures rep­re­sented, so it is the per­fect set­ting to show­case Prey col­lec­tions, which draw in­spi­ra­tions from cul­tures and coun­tries all over the world.
