- Savage Swim. Say that three times. You’ll want to remember the name. Savage Swim is the HOTTEST company opening in St. Augustine this year … maybe in the next 10 years.
Owner Beth Reeb, a St. Augustine single mom of four children and two dogs, has recently launched her own line of swim suits.
Currently sold online at www.SavageSwim.com, a grand opening will be held from 1 p.m. to sunset on Saturday, July 11 at 3900 A1A South, St. Augustine Beach. Live music will include Chillula, Datil Duo, the Rivernecks, and DJ HU.
Local vendors, food trucks, hula-hoopers, body painting, contests, face painting and a bounce house for the kids also will be part of the event.
And the Savage Swim girls (called a tribe by Reeb) will be there modeling the savage suits.
“I have resided in north east Florida for the last 18 years, lived on the water my whole life, and have always had an infinite love for the outdoors, the sun and the ocean. Always in a bikini in Florida, and never having the luck of finding the perfect fitting suit, I decided to take on the challenge and launch my own line of sexy, sporty, reliable, cheeky bikinis,” Beth explained.
“I have always had a background in interior design (3rd generation) and have been sewing interior design projects for a living since I was 16. Although self taught in the clothing and swimsuit arena, it comes natural, is a passion of mine to create, and also to help others shine in their own skin. Nothing quite like a perfect fitting bikini to make you feel sexy, confident and alive on those gorgeous sunny days.”
In addition to the bikinis, active wear such as tank tops, shorties, hats and other items are available by Savage Swim.
To add an extra layer of excitement for the grand opening, local street wear brand Paper Root Clothing teamed up with Savage Swim and Classic Blends (St. Augustine-based event-planning business) for an exclusive collaboration.
“We live life for the active outdoors, and are here to help you do the same, in style, comfort, and confidence,” Reeb said.
