In 2008, artist and designer Alexandra Cassaniti launched Summer Bummer, a collection of clothing and accessories made for life offline. Drawing from her upbringing on the beaches of Hawaii and Southern California and her years of experience as a designer and production coordinator in New York and Los Angeles, Cassaniti channels endless summer into the ever-evolving range of clothing, handbags, accessories, and sporting goods.
Built on cultivating craftsmanship, conscious consumerism, and sustainability, she strives to keep the highest ethical standards in every aspect of her business. As an industry influencer, she was the first designer to reintroduce neoprene to the fashion mainstream and her original hand-screened fabrics have inspired countless mechanical reproductions.
Summer Bummer has been featured in publications across the US, Europe, and Japan including Cool Hunting, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Elle, DailyCandy, Refinery29, Foam, The Fader, Racked, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Stylecaster.
