Sometimes when you visit somewhere, there’s something intangible that sticks in your soul. For me, it was Cape Town, South Africa. I wanted to share the spirit of where I was with my friends, to give them a tangible souvenir of this amazing place. So, I sent out postcards. Soon I was sending fifty to a hundred postcards to people ranging from close childhood friends to distant acquaintances. It became my thing - every trip I went on, I would send out postcards, sharing funny anecdotes and creating a little community of storytellers. The spirit of connection, adventure and romance of my little tradition was electrifying. I knew I had to chase that feeling. And so, over the next two years including my eventual move to Cape Town, postcard girls came to be born in the Mother City. Inspired by the landscapes, culture, and people, Cape Town’s unique spirit is at the core of our brand.
From Clifton Beach, with love...
Our story begins in Africa, with one of the continent's most unique and breathtaking beaches. Clifton is unlike any other beach you'll visit. Our four swim styles in the Clifton collection pay homage to the four beaches making up Clifton in Cape Town, South Africa. The beaches, known as Clifton 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, each have their own uniquely beautiful character and stunning landscapes, a distinction we hope to emulate in our 4 unique suit styles. Come explore the cool blue waters, sweeping cliff vistas, and secluded boulder coves that inspired our first collection.
