Founded and designed by Keri Ogden, Elle Mer is a swimwear line made on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Elle Mer’s mission is to create a top-quality product that holds up during swimming and sunning, while giving back to the “Big Island” that Ogden calls home. Elle Mer’s sewing facility in Paia, Maui features an extra-large glass barn door that customers can watch through as their bikinis and one piece swimsuits are being made. Elle Mer ships all of their designs straight from their office in Honolulu, Hawaii, just minutes from the reef breaks where all of their swimwear is surf-tested to ensure comfort and coverage. With a focus on fit and quality, all Elle Mer bikinis and one piece swimsuits blend the laid-back, comfortable vibes of classic Californian style with the simplicity and modernity of Parisian chic, all while featuring the colorful, current swimwear trends so often worn in Hawaii. From mesh-accented long sleeve rashguards in pretty pastels to stay-in-place, hipster-style bikini bottoms, every surfer girl and fashion-forward beach babe is sure to find her fit in Elle Mer.
