At 22, Trinidad and Tobago-born, self-taught designer Trishelle Leacock founded Kaiso. Swim (formerly Reign.) during her last semester as a University of Miami track and field student-athlete. In 2018, she decided to step away from competing and began to work on designs inspired by her Island “gyal” upbringing, passion for creating, and love of swimwear. Her first collection, “Trouble,” was launched on July 14th, 2018, and now at 26, she has launched two more collections since the brand’s inception. The name Kaiso. Swim is an ode to her heritage and vision for the brand.
Kaiso. Swim is Resort Wear inspired by the island lifestyle touched with the boldness & authenticity of the Caribbean aesthetic. We use vivid prints, clean-cut shapes & high-quality materials to make each swimsuit the perfect combination of luxury & comfort that flatters the body.
The name Kaiso. Swim is rooted in the idea of continually breathing life into our stories/heritage through our pieces and also being inspired by the new generation who are now writing their own. When broken down, the word Kaiso means (Ka) Go (Iso) Forward, highlighting some of our central values: to continually grow, evolve, and innovate as a brand.
