SAKS FIFTH AVENUE

Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel began operating independent retail stores on New York’s 34th Street at Herald Square in the early 1900s. They had a vision of opening a unique specialty store that would be home to fashionable, gracious living. Their “dream store” became reality with their grand opening on September 15, 1924. Saks Fifth Avenue became the first large retail operation to locate in what was then primarily a residential district. By offering the finest quality men’s and women’s fashions, as well as an extraordinary program of customer services, Saks Fifth Avenue has become the byword for taste and elegance.

CAMI AND JAX

CAMI AND JAX is a line of luxury swimwear conceived on the same Kauai beaches its founders grew up on. CAMI AND JAX has rapidly earned a loyal following among the west coast surf-set and jet-set alike with designs that marry bold design with performance, whilst sculpting a striking silhouette. These swimsuits are to be worn, to be moved in, to be surfed in; these are swimsuits to feel transformed by and emboldened in. CAMI AND JAX was founded with the intention of empowering women through design and will continue to celebrate strength and power as prerequisites to beauty. Founded by surfers, CAMI AND JAX has always been, and will always be, focused on creating swimwear to move you. Suit your body. Suit yourself. Designer Jackie Brady and her sister, former pro-surfer Camille Brady, are lifelong water-babies who had sand on their toes and salt in their hair before they could walk. Deeply connected to the ocean, to this day the sisters can be found wearing their bikinis more often than not.
