Seea Karina One Piece - Rojas - Available in April
Your shoulders and back have never been so gracefully framed as in the Karina One-Piece. The high neck silhouette cascades into a braided belt to define the waist while the angled bottom cut lengthens your legs.
The Karina One-Piece is part of the Seeababes capsule and was co-designed with ambassador Karina Rozunko.
Born and raised in Southern California, Karina Rozunko’s summer playground was SanO, a beach time capsule of longboarding and retro surf culture.
In this parking lot of vintage cars, analog stereos, and old school logs dominating the line-up, it’s no wonder that Karina’s style is heavily influenced by the past.
For her eponymous one-piece, Karina co-designed the high neck and hourglass silhouette to complement her classic noseriding style that looks like as smooth and timeless as a film photograph. She makes hanging all ten digits look easy, but her athleticism, talent and dedication that make up her graceful style constantly amaze us.
Let’s talk about your first signature suit! What did you want in a suit and why?
I wanted a one-piece that reflected the 1950s combining fashion and function. I was inspired one of Claire McCardel's designs from the 1940's—a very stunning piece.
[Designer] Amanda [Chinchelli] and I worked on this design pretty quick. I had a pretty specific idea of what I wanted. High neck, open back, and a different leg/thigh cut. Getting the "Karina" perfect with all the bells and whistles took some adjustment considering the unique leg cut and stitch. It was really interesting seeing the process and attention to detail all these suits have. It was really fun to work with Amanda on this and getting to see the finished product.
“The Karina” is a suit that you feel very comfortable in and that's really important to me in all aspects of life. Being comfortable is a really important factor in surfing. If you feel like you look good you’re going to surf well.
