Released on July 1, the ArashiBlu collection celebrates being “perfectly imperfect” and “wearing yourself proudly,” Storm tells Teen Vogue. It features swimsuits named after some of her closest pals (and our faves) including ZendayaGigi HadidChloe x Halle, as well as her family and childhood besties. Storm’s debut swimwear collection is a proud celebration of unity in womanhood, so it only made sense that she pay homage to inspiring women in her circle. “I love this quote: ‘alone we are just one drop but together we are the ocean,’” Storm recounts. “They are all women who are strong, who are making strides in their own communities, in the world, [and] in their own right. So to be able to have a sense of community in friendship in this collection was important.”

Her candid, often humorous, and the incredibly brave book will inspire readers who desire hope for their own difficult times.
