The Brand | The Brain

When you first stumble across a Boys and Arrows swimsuit you will be overcome by the urge to smile. Each piece was dreamt up while laughing, passing the day soaking up the sun or dancing in the beginning raindrops of some tropical storm in some far off place. Or sitting wrapped in a Mexican blanket, around a smoldering fire, content to be in the moment, yet smirking about the possibility of tomorrow...

Meagan Howard is the owner, designer, creator, and brain of the Boys and Arrows brand. In order to make some sort of sense out of this complex yet refreshingly simple girl, I think it best to talk for a second about the Meagan I know, thinker, lover, laugher, giver, sister, doer, and real world friend.

Meagan the thinker has a huge heart, and is always putting others before herself. Her greatest hope in all she does is that her work will somehow shine some light, bring a smile, or add some strength and new inspiration to the life of a friend. Meagan's compassion finds it's expression, for now, within her unique designs, her approach to business, and her thoughts of you, strong, happy, and maybe even better, for a moment, in the Boys and Arrows bikini she has created. I can assure you that the suit you're wearing was created with a huge smile, as Meagan filled herself with an image of YOU, her friend, locked-in, and enjoying her most precious creation.

Meagan has never been afraid to step out of her comfort zone and take a leap of faith into the unknown and often quite scary landscape where dreams have the possibility to become reality. That very fact is the only reason Boys and Arrows exists.

In a word, she is a firecracker. And that is kind of, well rather exactly, a clear reflection of her company, the swimwear line, the dream, the idea, and the brand Boys and Arrows.
