ak designs + bandabeau

I am SO excited to announce that my collaboration with BandaBeau is LIVE!


BandaBeau was dreamed up in Cali a few years ago and has quickly become a ‘must-have’ of mine when I travel. The creators of the company are all about stylish and functional accessories for days spent soaking up the sun. When BB asked me to design a Limited Edition print, I  knew I wanted to design something that was an ode to the summer sun. So, without further ado, meet ‘Hello, Sunshine!”



The towel tamer is SUCH a vacay game-changer. On our recent trip to BHI, we had some serious windy days while trying to get some sun.  It ‘s almost impossible to relax when you are constantly fighting your towel! Plus, the small pouch is perfect for carrying around your ID, cash, and keys. The tamer keeps your stuff together and in place – so you can enjoy soaking up the sun!



The swimsuit travel bag is my new travel BFF. I’ve gone on a few trips so far this summer and this bag has come in handy every time! The bag is waterproof and antimicrobial so it’s ideal for keeping wet swimwear separate while traveling.  It also gave me some peace of mind while walking down the beach with my phone and wallet in hand. The mustard color of the yellow is an ode to the 70s-inspired style throwback that is all the rage right now. I wanted the muted tone to pair well with bright beach scenes: blue, white, orange, etc. The white stripe graphic was added for a little modern twist.



For your next getaway, pack along a BandaBeau to make your trip that much more relaxing and worry-free. You can shop the AK Designs style and other looks at BandaBeau.com. Make sure to tag #AKBB if you are rocking my Limited Edition print. I can’t wait to see!
