Premium Design Awaits within Aqua VI’s Treasure Chest
Pirates, shipwrecks, and premium clothing; this is what you can expect to find when you visit the Aqua VI Treasure Chest. The rugged style of this premium clothing brand is part surf and part contemporary, with a real focus on design. Inspired by Italian maritime maps, beach art, and the entertainment industry, Aqua VI’s vintage style tees are a hot item with celebs like Justin Timberlake, Mya, and Cameron Diaz – not to mention landlubbers everywhere.
UNCHARTED WATERS: THE BIRTH OF AQUA VI
In January 2005, Lian Murray and Ziggy Williams set out to explore “uncharted waters” within the surfing apparel industry. “I had taken my teenage girls ‘back to school shopping’ and saw that they were looking for clothing that was different, more cutting edge, and we couldn’t find the right looks anywhere,” Lian says. “That was when I realized that there was an entire niche in the market that was untapped, that would bridge the surf market and contemporary market together.” Thus, Aqua VI was born.
Together, Lian and Ziggy have created a fashion-forward apparel line that bridges the gap between two distinctly separate markets. The Aqua VI line boasts pieces that combine contemporary design concepts and quality materials with inspiration from the beaches of the world.
THE AQUA VI COLLECTION
Aqua VI’s premium tees are made from soft cotton and are great for layering or for wearing alone. Both the men and women’s collections feature unique maritime artwork. The attention to detail is evident when it comes to Aqua VI’s product design; each tee incorporates detailed patterns and shading elements which contrast beautifully with the collection’s custom color palette.
The maritime theme of these cotton tees is uniquely fresh and urban, and makes Aqua VI’s collection a must-have for trendsetters. We love the look of the women’s tees when worn under a fitted leather jacket with leggings, or when worn alone with denim. “This shirt is so comfortable!” raves DivaVillage Editor Amy Taylor, “I love throwing it on with my jeans and looking like I actually put time into getting ready."
