There are two sisters, Lisa Letarte Cabrinha and Michele Letarte Ross, behind the Letarte Swimwear brand that recently opened on Santana Row. The Maui-based swimwear company that blends Hawaiian vibes with bohochic style into its collections offers swimwear, coordinating cover-ups, and sportswear. Lisa is the designer and also lives in Maui. But don't be fooled by the brand's name and location—Letarte Swimwear offers plenty of fall options like its new Apres Soleil cashmere coverups. A visit to the new store is as much for swimsuits for a tropical vacay as it is for dresses and layers for the cooler days ahead. And an added incentive to make the trip to Santana Row is the store's beachy feel that brings a taste of Hawaii to right here in the Bay.
