Sahara Ray, if you have not yet heard of this 23 year-old then here’s your chance. She’s Australian born and California raised. Her father is professional surfer Tony Ray -her mother also surfs -but while surfing is in Ray’s blood it’s more a hobby for her. Ray has made a name for herself as a model, photographer and swimsuit designer.
Ray’s style is bohemian mermaid princess chic -if that makes any sense- or at least that’s how it appears. Her world seems to revolve closely around the beach. The photos, quotes as well as the fashion she effortlessly dawns are an ode to an endless summer filled with the daring and curious nature of women and youth. Nonetheless, her summery vibe should not be at all a surprise as she was practically raised n the beach. It is no wonder that she not only has her own fashion brand but that it is a swim suit line.
Sahara Ray Swim is sexy wear for the water. While some of the pieces can absolutely double for lingerie, they are all great unique looks for the summer whether you are on the beach, by the pool, or lounging around indoors. The prints, basics, cuts and silhouettes may appear simple in the sense of a relaxed style but there is nothing plain about them. There are both bikinis and one-pieces available in her collection. While the back-side of the bottoms are minimal coverage, the tops vary in detailing. The mesh detailing and shaping of the tops are signatures of Sahara Ray Swim.
Not only is Ray a designer but as a model herself she models a lot of her own stuff -both professionally and regularly. She dabbles in photography -having taken a lot of the photography for her line. Furthermore, her photos exhibit not only the sexy gypsy look but the notion that she is in practice a wanderer, traveling to different parts of the country and the world and emerging herself in the culture and environments. Their influences clearly reflect onto Ray’s style.
A beautiful woman with a desire for life, thirst for adventure, appreciation for nature, a creative gypsy soul and an undeniable edge, Sahara Ray is definitely a girl to watch. Go follow her on Instagram or Tumblr and you will see for yourself.
