When it comes to look-at-me swimwear, Minimale Animale is miles ahead of the pack. We caught up with founder and designer Cassandra Kellogg to talk travel and what makes her tick…

Cocktail or coffee?


Leather or denim?


Book or iPad?


Carry-on case or hold luggage?


Pool or ocean?

Lately, pool.

Day or night?


Where's the most magical place you’ve visited? 

The Bahamas.

Where are you still desperate to go? 

Tahiti, Cuba, Madagascar.

You’re being whisked away to an unnamed destination. What are the first things you pack?

I've never been whisked away but I would definitely pack three of my favourite bikinis (most likely all black ones), some Levis, my favourite cosy sweater, Converse, and an iPad full of movies.

Do you have any travel style hacks?

I always travel with a beanie, socks in my carry-on and an extra hoodie - I always get cold when I'm flying. 

What do you watch/listen to while on the on the go?

I'm a TV/movie girl - I always have Sex and the City on my iPad.

At what time is it acceptable to start drinking when on holiday?


What’s your favourite piece from the new collection? 

The Presley top in Cocoa.
