I had the pleasure of working with La Isla brand while in my role as Director of Retail for Strategic Hotels & Resorts. The swimwear line filled a gap in our resort swimwear mix, particularly for the Five Star Four Seasons Punta Mita Mexico resort and the Loews Santa Monica, California property. Enrique and his team were instant partners in planning assortments, assuring timeliness of delivery and overall collaboration on seasonal basis. The high quality of the product stood out in the mix, leading to dynamic sales and growth and loyalty to the brand by the exacting clientele.
Former Director of Retail
Since the introduction to LA ISLA and it’s CEO, Enrique Sanchez-Rivera, working from development to production has been a great and positive experience. We have recently finished production of our swim collection with LA ISLA private label and we are 100% satisfied with the end product. We have worked with other manufacturers in the past and no other manufacturer compares. Their high standards and tight quality control is what will push your product to the next level. Their attention to detail and ability to customize is a great aspect for working with LA ISLA for complete packages. Communicating with Enrique has always been great as well as he is always accessible and responds in a timely manner. Thank you LA ISLA and Enrique!
In today’s marketplace, no business can ignore its environmental footprint because customers now want to know what businesses are doing to minimize waste, minimize use of resources, and create products that are not harmful to the environment. We are beginning to experience a wave of sustainable prosperity. I appreciate LA ISLA for using the inspiration from the ocean to create swimwear and clothing that is in the spirit of enticing people to be outdoors, to be close to water; to feel, breathe the natural world. We must connect the ocean to the existence of every human being. This is the only way for people to understand that the quality of each and every one of our lives depends on water, depends on the ocean.

As a designer I am a perfectionist. Having said that, the amazing staff at LA ISLA, in particular Enrique Sanchez-Rivera have not only met my high expectations, but have exceeded them. The manufacturing has been impeccable, as has been the company’s treatment towards me. They have been there every step of the way, answering every question, helping in every aspect and generally providing a great sense of support as manufacturing partners. The result has been a beautiful production of swimsuits that I could not be happier with! I have come to consider LA ISLA as an essential part of my brand and cannot wait to pursue my next collection with them.
There are truly no words to describe seeing our first swimwear line come to life and seeing how beautiful everything turned out was like magic. All thanks to LA ISLA, who took our vision & made it better! It can be extremely challenging to find someone who can do everything and anything you wish, but LA ISLA has done just that & more. We were amazed at the quality and detail that was put into every aspect of our designs. LA ISLA has made this process a fairytale journey. We were confident and comfortable working with a brand that knew what we wanted and how to deliver. LA ISLA is our fairy-bikini-godmother!
