    So Ashley's really good friends with a lot of the National Water Polo Team (aka the Olympic team) and used to play with many of them growing up before college and while in college, and as teammates at UC Berkeley. I just got this photo from Elsie of some of the team sporting their practice suits made by us. One of the members is still in high school, so we had to creatively hide her because of NCAA rules...

    I have no idea why this insect spray poster from Switzerland should be posted, other than the fact her dress (or is that a swimsuit?) is rockin'.

    If anyone's read our "About" statement, you'll know that we pay extra close attention to color here at Jolyn Clothing, from our full suit prints grabbing inspiration from the whimsical pastels of Australian style to our bikinis' chromatic values inspired by Cuba and Brazil. I first saw this beautifully done video from Dwell Magazine about Josef Albers, the first part of a three part series on color theory a while ago, and ignorantly failed to post it.  A second video was just released and I couldn't upload it quick enough for everyone to see.  All you need to do is click on the links below!

    The Del Mar Lifeguard Department hosts and annual tiki torch surf party when the New Zealand Lifeguards are in town on the exchange program.  I grabbed a little clip of my close close friends Slim and Ash from Muirawai Beach, Aukland, doing the Haka- a Mauri war dance.

    The crowds get bigger and bigger every year.  The biggest problem is there aren't enough surf boards to go around.  Click the link...

  • Gstetten...huh?

    Sydney Gstettenbauer is an American transplant in Australia for the Adelaide Jets.  She was team captain at UCSD for 3 of her college years, had a few records there, and more importantly :-) was one of my first fit models during the dark days of figuring out fit when working on everything from different materials to silhouettes to printing processes and how they affected materials.  You name it, she tried it, she practiced in it, and best of all was super patient about it. She stayed with us for the long run when most models stopped meeting us at the pool or answering their phones, and even got her friends involved (and most of them are named Stephanie by the way).  She's invited back to play for Adelaide again next year and rock the pretty bitchin Top Gun suit.
