✨ Meet the Brand - Novel Swim

Novel believes that going to the beach is fun and putting your bathing suit on should be too. We believe the beach is for the people, and everyone should feel comfortable, confident, and chic in and out of the water. 

Every piece is soft to the touch and designed in cheeky, one-of-a-kind prints.  Each style is thoughtfully designed by owner + designer, Laura Rosenbaum. Novel is proud to be an women + minority owned, and works with local sewers in New York City to make sure everything is ethically made to last. They believe that good karma starts at the first stitch and makes for a happier, more beautiful swimsuit.

“The Caribbean is in my blood—literally, my mother was born in the Dominican Republic—so I’ve always had a deep love for the ocean. As a native New Yorker, I’ve been surrounded by great art, fantastic design, and the very best of the fashion world my whole life. I combined these loves when I created Novel.”
