The Lisa Blue girl is not easily defined with pieces in each collection appealing the the elegant and sophisticated lady, the fun and flirty beach babe, and the sporty and edgy surfer girl. With the roots of the brand stemming from a whale watching experience in Australia’s Byron Bay, Lisa Blue is a swimwear label with a conscience, with 25% of net profits being donated to the Australian Whale Conservation Society.

The extensive Summer 2013 collection from Lisa Blue follows the brand’s design philosophy of merging fashion with the beauty of the ocean, whilst bringing glamour to the surf. The seasonal line consists of First Summer and Second Summer which each contain mini collections with their own distinct aesthetic and stories – First Summer is made up of ‘Orchid Flower’, ‘Cover Girl’, ‘Flamingo’ and ‘Enchantress’, and Second Summer is made up of ‘Dragon’ and ‘Pin Up’.
