Seea: Women’s Surf Wear

“A celebration of the style, rhythm, and grace of women’s surfing.”

 

A distinctive brand, Seea is dedicated to the pioneering women who first braved the waves, and to every woman who has ever searched for a suit that is feminine, comfortable, and fun. An elegant mix of retro-modern shapes and contemporary colors and prints, Seea strikes the perfect balance between surf function and style.

 

Committed to domestic production and sustainable design, Seea suits are a locally crafted, 100% Californian product, right down to the famous breaks they are named after. Even small details, like the hangtags, are vintage made and multi-use, printed by letterpress, and complete with a hair band for your next surf session.

This pretty much sums up what I love so much about this company. Well, this and the fact that their designs are gorgeous and so unique.

Check out this video of their 2017 collection. So in love.

Drop Cloth Beach Tote

I split my time working both in my studio and at home, always carrying a lot of stuff back an forth – in several bags. What I really needed was a giant bag to transport everything, so I came up with this tote. Inspired by a painter I saw on the street whose jeans were covered with smears and drippings, I decided to experiment. This is the result and it turned out to be the perfect beach bag and farmers market tote. I use this bag all the time.

This canvas bag has one interior pocket and sturdy leather straps attached with super strong copper rivets.

Jacket to Bag Transformation Service

I just wanted to post a note that yes, I am still making custom leather bags from used leather jackets! I’ve been pretty busy lately working on custom orders and have not been able to get to all of my emails. Please be patient if that is you – I will get back to you very soon!

Remade USA is my leather jacket to bag transformation service. These bags are handmade by me, and made to order using the jackets that my customers send me. These leather jackets usually have special meaning to them and I create beautiful, new and useful bags from them.

These bags make beautiful gifts and keepsakes that that will be cherished. (I was super busy during the holidays!) They are awesome gifts with meaning for the person who appreciates more thoughtful things that they will want to hold on to.

If you are interested in this service, please send me a note, along with a photo of your jacket to shop@shannonsouth.com and I will give you more info – such as prices and timing.

Rest in Peace Starman

DB-Transformation-Colour
This is everywhere, but I’m posting it anyway because I just love this animation by British artist, Helen Green. It shows so simply and clearly the creativity behind the multifaceted talent, David Bowie. I wasn’t the biggest fan ever, but he has been such an important figure in music my whole life that I definitely feel the hole and am so saddened. I dream of having just a small bit of Mr. Bowie’s ability to get in touch with and release creative vision. He is such an inspiration in so many ways. I’ve already ordered a couple books from his top 100 reading list.
