Strip Down with Sports Illustrated Model Tori Praver’s Latest Swimwear Collection

Featured Video
Get ready to strip down and cool off because summer is officially upon us! As the temperature starts to soar, we’ve got our eyes set on this year’s hottest swimwear trends. One pieces, halter necks and high-waisted bottoms are all fair game, and we’ve got the inside scoop on the swimwear label that’s doing it all. As a regular feature in Sports Illustrated, global brand ambassador for surfwear brand Billabong and beach enthusiast, it’s no surprise that Tori Praver’s swimwear line is making waves as being one of the most coveted of the season.

The Tulum Top

Her latest Resort 2016 collection ‘Sonoran Sun’ hailed back to her all-American roots with motifs inspired by the open desert and the flora that is found in its landscape. To learn more about Tori’s latest collection, we sat down with Alle Fister––owner of Bollare Communications and official rep for the line––to discuss what sets Tori’s brand apart, summer beach essentials and more.

Rosarito One Piece

STEPHANIE: What sets the line apart from other swimwear brands?
ALLE FISTER: So many elements of Tori’s line are special and unique. One of my favorites is her signature ruching technique, which is key to the collection’s fit and form to the body. This technique is implemented throughout the line, and is a key element of the impeccable fit.

What is your favorite piece from the collection?
I just got back from a weekend away in Hawaii, and couldn’t stop wearing THE TULUM TOP! It looks adorable as pure swimwear, or as a layering piece worked into a ready to wear, "fresh off the beach" look.

What is your favorite swimwear style?
While the TULUM top is my favorite bikini top of the season, my go-to swimwear style is a triangle top with a cheeky bottom. The cut of the LAHAINA set is seriously perfect!
