It's hard to believe that it took us a trip to Miami to discover a sexy statement swimwear line that's produced right in our backyard. Venice-based Minimale Animale is known for dressing our city's most daring beach brats, thanks to unique skin-baring designs by super babe Cassandra Kellogg.
For The Stylish's latest In Focus episode, the popular YouTube channel (who recently featured our girl Elizabeth Kott of Closet Rich) took a trip to Kellogg's funky studio in Venice, where all of Minimale Animale's pieces are produced. In-between modeling her latest skimpy, sportswear-inspired styles, she reveals that the line's name is a nod to "the minimalist that I felt was a void in the swimwear industry and sort of this animalistic sexiness that can be meshed together."
