Friday, May 24, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Cassandra Kellogg of Minimale Animale
She rides Harleys, is a self-professed tattoo freak and doesn’t make a swimsuit you can’t surf in. We’re talking about the badass Venice Beach babe behind Minimale Animale, Cassandra Kellogg, whose vintage-inspired designs have been heating up waters from coast to coast (not to mention our latest lookbook). Inspired by iconic 80s and 90s swimwear, her curve-hugging suits are both athletic and sexy, minimal and extreme. Here, she sheds some light on the genesis of the brand, her design process, and who she’d love to suit up.
