A la mar is an exclusive "ready to wear"
and accessories brand inspired by travel,
different cultures and the sea...

A la mar was established in 2010 by designer Marcelle Akerman in Cali,
Colombia. Marcelle received her BFA in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2004 and then moved to New York city to work in an advertising company. While in New York, she also had the great opportunity to work with renowned painter and graphic artist Ryan McGinness. This great experience with Ryan made her realize that graphic design could be applied to many different things, other than advertising. This is when she decided it was time for a 'seize the day'
kind of moment and moved back home to create her own brand.

Being exposed to New York's design and fashion world, played a key role
in the development of A la mar. 
Now enjoying by the paradisiacal beaches of her country, the diversity of Colombian materials and the impeccable work of its craftsmen, Marcelle found the perfect inspiration to design
her collections.

A la mar has become a lifestyle brand, including accessories, clothing and swimwear…offering a wide range of travel essentials hoping to inspire you to choose your next beach escape.

For the love of wanderlust and endless summers. Buen Viaje...Happy Journey...Bon Voyage!
