Nusa Swimwear is a Cornish inspired label designed in Bali by surfer/ traveller/ stylist and all round legend Jasmine Oades. Best thing to come out of Cornwall since Poldark ;) The name Nusa comes from the Balinese word meaning island.
We wanted Jasmine to write a few words about her new swimwear line and her intro to us sums her up pretty well: "I have always liked bright and different designs so I basically designed a label for everything I would like to wear, and there is hardly any English labels where the bikini bottoms aren’t the same size as a nappy so thought I would have a go at changing that one for the bum tan game ;)"
JASMINE, AS THE TRULY ALL ROUND LEGEND THAT YOU ARE, WHAT ARE YOU KNOWN FOR?
Hmm, good question... mainly falling over, drinking too much coffee and partying hard haha!
YOU´RE A NEW ADDITION TO THE CRAYON BOX. WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?
Gold glitter!! I’m not sure why it would be me but they really need to get that crayon out there.
WHAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU RECENTLY?
Oh no this is such a hard question hahaha I have a lot of funny things happen to me reguarly but I left my car in a high tide car park once until the water was up to window and I was too embarassed to get in it and try and reverse so mum had to hahaha sorry mum ! I found seaweed in there for about three weeks.
TEACH ME SOMETHING I DON´T KNOW IN THREE SENTENCES.
Well coming from the previous question getting your car dried out for £120 in a garage still won’t get rid of the water and you will have to sell it for a quarter of what it’s worth before you go travelling.. hahah OOPS!
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
HAPPY hahaha, lame but that’s as far as my planning will go.
DESCRIBE YOUR BIKINI LINE TO SOMEBODY WHO IS BLIND.
Bright, fun, unique and obviously fabulous hehe.
FINALLY, JASMINE... A PENGUIN WALKS INTO YOUR ROOM RIGHT NOW WEARING YOUR WATERGATE ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT. WHAT DOES HE SAY AND WHY IS HE THERE?
He’s there to thank me for creating such a piece of beauty and has brought me a crate of Corona as a thank you… hint hint to anyone reading ;)
