Kushcush in SI Swimsuit issue!

Fabulous day! So excited to share that Lindsey Vonn is wearing my red Diana bikini in the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue! So hot, check it out… we’re on page 84!!


I come from a long line of skiers so I’m especially thrilled to have Olympic Skier (and fellow Minnesota girl!) Lindsey wearing my suit! She is amazing & we’ll definitely be cheering her on in Vancouver!


The Diana style as seen on Lindsey is available in Luxe Black and Red for $176 at Kushcush.com. Click here to shop!


Love your SELF

My Kushcush ‘Maddie’ bikini is featured in the February issue of SELF magazine! Loving it. This photo makes me want to go back on vacation…


To shop this style, check out one of our favorite retailers, South Moon Under. My vintage-inspired bandeau & hi-waist bottoms are available in the black/blush gems colorway for $172. Click to shop.


Paradise in St. Lucia

After our romp in the snow, my husband and I headed south to the warm island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. We were welcomed to our jaw-dropping sanctuary at Jade Mountain (my line of swimwear is carried in the resort boutique!). Indulgent luxury combined with the beauty of nature. Pure blisssss….take a peek!


The smell of coconut, sea spray (love the fabulous things it does for my fine hair), vibrant fruits and flowers, the tropical glow on my skin…. this is the reason I design swimwear.



Stresses of the city fade away…sunrise yoga over-looking the ocean, fresh-squeezed tropical juices, indulgent massages and ayurvedic treatments at the Jade Mountain spa. Total relaxation.



Designed without a fourth wall, our room opened to a breathtaking view of the Piton mountains and Caribbean sea…complete with butler service, sundeck and private infinity pool (yes, in our room!).



Diving in!

Inspiration everywhere….watching the sun set from under a thatched umbrella.
