This collection celebrates the colors of sprawling ocean hues, coral, tropical fish, seaweed and coastal landscapes. Her signature gold heart ornament adorns many of her pieces, adding her personal warmth as the heart is the universal symbol of love and romance.
The brand is comprised of standard and stylized cuts with handcrafted elements that bare the stamp of the diverse cultures and colors of Latin America –Montoya is in the forefront of the “bikini evolution”.
