Picture this: You get up every day and slog away at an office, working on a creative project with ... your sister. That might not work for all of us — but for the Oleema and Kalani Miller, the sibs behind blockbuster swim brand MIKOH, life together is literally a beach. If the selfies of the two of them together on both of their Instas is any indication, these two geniunely adore each other, and clearly have a good thing going with their business strategy — which seems to involve lotsa surfing, sunshine, and figuring out exactly what women want from their swimwear.

It was fun to catch up with the Miller sisters and chat resolutions, beaches, and where they're headed in 2017. 

BIKINI: Do you two have any New Year's resolutions?
THE MILLERS: Travel more to new places — the best way to learn about cultures and gather inspiration is by going to explore and see new places. We have Thailand on our bucket list for 2017!

BIKINI: What beaches are on your must-see list for 2017?
THE MILLERS: We both spend months out of the year in Hawaii. We would love to explore our backyard and neighboring islands. Kauai is known as one of the most lush islands in the world, and we would love to hike to beaches that you can only reach via hike, like Secret Beach.

BIKINI:  Can you tell us about the inspiration for the next Mikoh collection?
THE MILLERS: You’ll have to wait and see!

BIKINI:  Do you have any fave instagram accounts?
THE MILLERS: We love @chrissyteigan @erinfoster — both are hilarious — and @bikinidotcom, of course.

BIKINI:  Trend-wise, what do you think is going to be big news in swim in 2017?
THE MILLERS: We think that there is a big “back to basics” trend right now. Also, we are loving our fuller coverage pieces, like the Mediterranean one piece. Of course, details are always key, and the Loihi top and Bankok top both have understated but impactful details. We are loving tropical prints!
