Not that you needed any sort of affirmation about how wonderful either of these brands are, but we thought we’d send a big congratulations (in blog post form) to this year’s SIMA Award Winners…L*Space Swimwear and Billabong Girls!
Women’s Swim Brand of the Year Winner: L*Space by Monica Wise
L*Space’s fun, fringed silhouettes and figure-flattering cuts stood out amongst some amazing swimwear brands, including Billabong Swimwear, TAVIK Swimwear, Roxy, and Volcom. Our favorite L*Space bikini? This L*Space fringe bandeau in lime (pictured above). Congrats to the crew at L*Space for making both smiling (and working) your favorite.

Women’s Apparel Brand of the Year Winner: Billabong Girls
With an aesthetic that’s both fashion-forward, while staying true to Billabong’s beach culture, it’s no surprise that Billabong Girls took home the trophy (and bragging rights) for Women’s Apparel Brand of the Year. What’s new from Billabong Girls this season? Stand-out collections include a collaboration with Aussie fashion blogger Oracle Fox and a throwback Surf Capsule Collection that takes note from Billabong’s early days.

After a few seasons of wishing that we, too, could pass on the green goodness that is the Billabong x Bob Marley Collection, Billabong has finally kicked one down for the ladies….
It’s the Billabong Girls x Bob Marley Collection! Top top off some vintage-inspired graphic tees & tanks, the collection came through with crochet shorts, crochet bikinis, and slouchy cuts. Our top pick: the Billabong One Love Crochet Short.
