“The name Seea comes from my love for the sea,” explains founder and designer, Amanda Chinchelli. “As an Italian, I pronounce the name ‘see-ah’. It’s a feminine word, with a musicality and beauty to it."
A distinctive brand, Seea is dedicated to the pioneering women who first braved the waves, and for every women who wants a suit that is feminine, fun, and comfortable. Cut with waves in mind, each suit reflects a female surfer’s needs, so why leave your style on the beach? Simply put, Seea is a celebration of the rhythm and grace of women’s surfing, and the magic of riding waves.
"We are women… We are the graceful sliders of the Seea.”
Seea founder and designer, Amanda Chinchelli, connected with the ocean early on. Growing up on the island of Ilhabela, Brazil, Amanda played in the surf of the tropics until she was ten, when her family moved back to Italy, their native country. Reunited with her grandmother, Amanda learned to crochet and sew, and soon developed an interest in fashion and passion for design, which would serve as the basis for her career.
In her adult life, Amanda made her way Stateside and settled in California, near the ocean and the waves. An avid surfer, Amanda spent as much time in the water as she did looking for a cute suit to surf in. Frustrated with the available selection, it didn’t take long for Amanda to sew up a few of her own designs. On her daily paddle-outs and surf trips, compliments and inquires for custom suits began to roll in. Merging her design experience with her wave-riding skills, Amanda resolved to bring her creations to the women’s surf wear market, and so, Seea was born!
