Photos by: AleLuca 

“ENERGY” Expands Command on “Mexican Riviera”

We are thrilled to report that Skyler Swimwear™ has launched its official web site at midnight, on December 5th. The launch of the online store (

follows a test campaign and significant growth in overall in-store presence along Mexico’s famed “Mexican Riviera,” driven by its debut collection, ENERGY.

The collection is carried in upscale malls and resort community boutiques throughout the region, including high-end tropical locations of Punta de Mita and Puerto Vallarta, which are vastly becoming the “it towns” of high end clientele, including celebrity crowds and executives from across theglobe.

The lush jungles and warm Pacific Ocean, along with the vibrant nightlife, provide the perfect backdrop for ENERGY. The collection can now can be shopped online as well, exclusively through the Skyler Swimwear website.

“The response in Mexico’s most exclusive shops has definitely exceeded expectations, and we couldn’t be more excited to share Skyler Swimwear with a much bigger audience,” says 21 year-old designer and company founder/CEO Skyler Lee.“

The new online store allows a direct channel for international clients to purchase from the collection.”         


The site is user-centric and engaging in all aspects. Visitors can easily identify which pieces are right for them through a look book and size chart as well as get ideas on how to create dozens of “looks” by pairing different tops with bottoms to create unique combinations. A secure and easy check-out process makes the experience effortless from log on to click off.




Skyler Swimwear is your next wardrobe essential. Like the little black dress, each piece from the ENERGY collection is assured, sophisticated and sexy. It’s the perfect travel companion. Toss it in your bag for the beach or stow it for a cross continent escapade. Resilient, high-end fabric cut with smart engineering that aims to flatter any figure by lifting in all the right places. It has been said to be similar to that of a “ young ERES style.” Skyler Swimwear is the perfect choice for a jet-set look or simplify for a sleek silhouette. Whatever your scene, Skyler Swimwear fits the scene.



Clean, cohesive, effortless. ENERGY, Skyler Swimwear’s debut collection, inspires confidence and creativity. ENERGY makes finding your flawless fit refreshingly uncomplicated. Choose from five tops and bottoms, each smartly engineered to flatter your natural curves. Monochromatic color palettes in three vibrant hues – cherry red, black, and white– become your “canvas for creative expression.”

Skyler was born in Beverly Hills, California. At the age of 12, she then moved with her family to Mexico, growing up in a swimsuit and surfing on the beaches of Punta de Mita and Puerto Vallarta. Drawn to style and fashion at an early age, she quite naturally aspired to create her own line, complimenting her tropical authentic lifestyle, while drawing design influences from the more urban, high fashion world of Los Angeles. Bi-cultural and internationally influenced, Skyler explains“ I come from two jungles: one tropical, the other concrete. The concept was to create a collection of essentials that cater to both influences.” Skyler’s design ambitions actively began to take shape two years ago, resulting in ENERGY, the first collection from Skyler Swimwear introduced for Resort 2019. Produced and manufactured in Guadalajara, under the helm of Alt Creative Agency ( @ALTCREATIVEAGENCY). Skyler recently returned to Southern California to pursue education as well as entrepreneurial and creative opportunities within the entertainment industry.

The Gates of Heaven: Imanta Resort is Paradise on Earth

Date Aug 20, 2018
Photos by: Ale Luca
In Spanish, the word “imanta” means “magnetic attraction.”
In Mexico, Imanta Punta de Mita Resort translates to pure bliss.
Hugging the tropical cliffs along the Riviera Nayarit – Mexico’s Gold Coast, and just minutes away from Puerto Vallarta Airport, Imanta is not to be missed. This magical Eden nestled between the Sierra de Vallejo National Reserve and Banderas Bay, sparkles like diamonds as it dances on the edge of the mighty Pacific. Tucked within this enchanting 250 acre setting is a mystical refuge that is a true gift to those who have grown weary of the one-size-fits-all sprawl of the world’s mega resorts. In fact, at full capacity, the Imanta Resort accommodates less than two-dozen guests.
Inspired by a trip to Thailand, the hoteliers imagined a private sanctuary that seamlessly blended luxury with sustainability. The result, a first-class environmentally conscious boutique hotel and spa, is nothing short of supernatural. It begins with the perfect location, carefully chosen for its privacy and undisturbed natural beauty. The air itself is wildly intoxicating.
A warm breeze carries the rich scent of almond, mango, and tamarind, layering the air and gently calming the spirit. Vibrant sounds from the jungle entice one to exploration and adventure, while the crystalline water beckons for play and pondering. Sitting 21 degrees north of the equatorial plane, Imanta shares a kinship with other healing environs like Maui and the Bahamas.
The earth’s most noble creatures have long known the secrets of these shores.
For hundreds of years, whales have found solace and safety in the waters of the Bay, migrating from colder climes to give birth to their young and strengthen them for the long journey back. It makes me smile thinking of my family’s own rewarding trips to this paradise.
Complimenting the exquisite locale, the Imanta’s secret ingredient is its profound respect for the soul – that of the land and her fortunate visitor.
The property celebrates the terrain’s organic hues and contours with a romantic cluster of shelters lovingly crafted from sustainable material.
The Imanta makes mind, body, and spiritual renewal priorities for all Imanta guests. “Harmony meets luxury” best describes the spacious guest suites.
Guests revel in magnificent views of the ocean, mountains, and jungle. Although you might be tempted to stay in your suite, so much more awaits outside your door. Visitors are nourished by local fare that includes fresh local seafood, exotic indigenous fruits, and savory premium meats all prepared with exacting standards. Rejuvenation can be found in the award winning or participating in a mind-boggling range of activities including hiking, yoga, meditation, and fishing.

A personal favorite is surfing. My Mayan surf guide, Black Bear, knows all of the prime spots. The most amazing of which is”The Gates of Heaven.” I find the name appropriate for two reasons. Yes, it’s where you can catch the perfect wave. But from those pristine waters, if you listen closely, you will also hear the sweet Siren’s song of the Imanta calling you home.

Isla Mita by Emmanuelle Boutin

Date Aug 15, 2018

Isla Mita is a curated collection of beach-worthy apparel and accessories selected specifically for the Punta Mita lifestyle. Inspired by the passion its founder Emma Boutin has for this inimitable place, Isla Mita fuses chic style with the relaxed comfort that is a hallmark of this Pacific Mexico resort.

“Every day I am inspired by the beauty of the nature found here, and the energy present here,” says Emma. She explains that her inspiration may come in the form of a single wave, a baby turtle, a tiny shell…or the energy that the people here bring with them. “Everyone here has an intense life, a special story. Even though it’s a small community, it’s a community of remarkable people.” As for Emma’s story? “I fell in love here, and found my partner here.”

The Isla Mita style is reflective of Emma’s personal style while in Punta Mita: understated, low-key luxury. As Punta Mita is not a place of pretense, Isla Mita reveals its sense of elegance in graceful draping and luxurious fabrics – think silk, soft cottons and breezy fabrics. The Isla Mita line of beachwear is comprised of low-maintenance items you can wear from morning to night – with most pieces as fitting for breakfast as they are for cocktails.

“I prefer to wear caftans – or anything flowing – in quality fabrics of silk or cashmere, and accented with simple yet striking accessories. I always wear what I sell – and especially love the emerging women designers I’m working with.”

For Emma, the quality of the fabrics is especially important, as that leaves you feeling sexy. “Being sexy is how confident you are in what you wear…how you feel in what you wear,” states Emma. “And, a woman’s smile can accessorize anything.”

Colors sizzle! Emma reasons that in cities you generally don’t use much color, so she takes advantage of the seaside setting to make a vibrant statement. “Travel opens you up to new colors and designs,” she explains. In Punta Mita, colors are bold, and sea-inspired, and design quality is of top importance to Emma. “I seek out brands and designers who know how to ‘fit a woman’s body’ – a body with curves. It is important to embrace the body of a woman in a tasteful but sensual way,” she explains. “The designers I choose to work with at Isla Mita are those who can combine quality fabrics, good fit, and great style.”

The goal for Isla Mita and its curated collection of items is to become the lifestyle shop for the greater Punta Mita community, as well as to eventually private-label Punta Mita branded items. Isla Mita will offer well-traveled woman items they can easily pack and carry, that look good anywhere. “These are easy to wear and care pieces of exceptional quality and design.”

Isla Mita also contributes back to the community, through Emma’s involvment with the Punta de Mita Foundation. For her Punta Mita collection, a percentage of every purchase goes to the Foundation, giving back to the community through the Isa Mita brand.
Ultimately, Emma’s vision is that Punta Mita evolves into a globally recognized iconic destination – in the manner of St. Barts or Ibiza – but with its own singular style – and, a new generation of style.

About Emma:

Emma, after traveling the world, made the choice to settle in Punta Mita, ushering in new generation of residents in this uber-relaxed–yet upscale–resort on Mexico’s Pacific coast. With talents that combine fashion and business, Emma has brought a new, modern energy to the community, infusing Punta Mita’s casual beach living with an elevated sense of style. Energetic, dedicated, generous, and passionate about anything she sets her sights on, Emma feels the need to always be surrounded by beauty.

Emma left her hometown of Montreal at 19, and traveled extensively. “I was looking for myself, and in Punta Mita, I found myself. I felt – for the first time – that I could breathe.” It is this sense of finding her sense of home, which has lead Emma to want to contribute back to the community, bringing her fashion background and travel experiences to create Isla Mita.

“Love brought me here, brought me to Mexico, and I think Mexico chose me too,”

Emma was attracted to the values of love, family and the importance of women in the Mexican culture. After having lost her mother and brother in a short space of time, it was in Punta Mita where Emma recreated her sense of family. “I found myself here, and view Punta Mita as a place to build roots.”

For Emma, the perfect Punta de Mita day starts with waking up to sound of the waves, walking her two dogs along the beach and enjoying a healthy breakfast at the Residents’ Beach Club, before diving into her busy day. When she has free time, she slows it down to enable Punta Mita “to just get inside of me”, she reveals: ”I want to appreciate the beauty of this special place, and stop everything…if just for a moment.”

Isla Mita Lifestyle Boutiques are currently located exclusively in Punta Mita. The flagship store is located at Kupuri Beach Club and a second chic container stone can be found at Sufi Ocean Club. Open daily 10 am to 6 pm.
