“Seashells” is inspired by the empty seashells that are washed ashore and become quintessential beach holiday memorabilia. However, environmentalists note that taking shells from a beach can disrupt the local ecology, from increasing erosion to taking nest-building materials from birds to preventing algae from seeking shelter in the shells. “Taking one or two shells from a beach probably won’t have a major impact —but if every beachgoer were to take a couple of shells, the effects could be significant,” explains Alana Sorokin, brand Founder.
The design “Waves” is inspired by the ocean tides caused by the Earth rotating while the Moon and Sun’s gravitational pull acts on ocean water. “About 70% of the oxygen we breathe is produced by the oceans. Some marine animals often take advantage of currents to migrate several miles to and from breeding areas” shares Sorokin.
Corals play an important role underwater because they are not only animals, but a marine habitat to other marine species as well. In fact, about 25 percent of the world’s marine species depend on coral reefs for shelter and food. “Acropora corals are one of the primary reef builders in the world’s oceans and they are highly sought after by reeftank hobbyists for their remarkable growth rates and intense colors,” points out Sorokin, who was inspired to create the “Coral Acropora” swimsuit design.
