We thought it is about time that we shared a little more behind the Nicole Martine Beachwear brand and give a glimpse to our customers and readers how the owner, Nicole Martine lives her island life in the beautiful city of Cape Town South Africa.  We have teamed up with the glamorous lifestyle photographer and stylist, Danielle King of Mandarin Photography to help us capture these moments.

Nicole lives and works in Cape Town and calls home Dominico House, which lies on the slopes of Lions Head mountain. Born and bred South African with Mauritian family roots she is a true summer baby, obsessed with living an island inspired lifestyle in Cape Town. “It’s very important that my creative space is bold, exotic and exudes tropical style, that way I always work in a happy summery space ” says Nicole. There is rarely not a vase on her desk filled with bright flowers or gigantic tropical leaves. She is often found pruning a few palm trees that border Lions Head mountain and our property for some tropical foliage to bring that island feeling inside her home and office space.


Working on a beachwear brand is a passion, but requires a lot of discipline especially in the winter months! At Nicole Martine Beachwear, we pride ourselves in hand wrapping all our online orders and writing personal notes to our clients. “I love personalising anything and everything! My best friend and I have always engraved or personalised every gift we gave each other since we were six years old, I still love the gifts and they hold so much more meaning”. Our clients have the opportunity to customise their own neoprene makeup bags/ beach pouches with any name, initial or message. These make the perfect gift for a birthday present, bridal party or for spoiling yourself and loved ones.   


Nicole believes that you have to love your own products so much that you personally wear and use them and be proud to show them off! The above photo shows Nicole wearing her favourite navy and white outfit with the The Oberoi tote from her latest AW’16 collection.

We would love to hear more from our readers on what you would like to hear about or which products are your favourite?
