Mer Culture combines prestigious fabric from Italy and exquisite trims from Spain to create 'Vibrant, Exotic and Luxurious Swimwear that takes you to Paradise...'
Meaning 'Culture of the Sea', we believe that the ocean is not just a body of water, but an enchanting destination that unites all types of people. Regardless of our ethnicity, religion or background, we voyage to the ocean to escape our everyday lives. This is a lifestyle in itself; a Mer Culture!
We’re all about mixing exotic patterns, traditional crafts, unique colours and bohemian vibes from around the world to represent the melting pot of people that come together at a seaside location.
Growing up in the buzzing, cosmopolitan tropic of Hong Kong, it's no wonder designer and founder Natasha J. Cotton fell in love with the beach at an early age. She dreamed of a career in fashion design so she attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. It was there that she combined her love for fashion and beaches, creating dreamy beachwear collections that gained high recognition amongst her peers and professors. After graduation and a few design jobs later, she took the plunge into entrepreneurship; Mer Culture was born.
Strongly influenced by her love of travel, she photographs, paints and takes notes of her journeys to document inspiration for the collections. The brand embodies all that she is; a free-spirited woman with an eager curiosity to sample the world and its destinations. She designs all of Mer Culture's striking prints, making them unique and exclusive to the brand. Through Mer Culture, she hopes to inspire others to embrace their creativity, raise awareness about the World and aid the environment and those suffering in poverty.
Not only do we understand the fact that all women are different, we celebrate it! We sell our swimwear as separates allowing you to mix-and-match any size, color and style you wish, to create your own look!
