“The Vivida Lifestyle was born as a concept and philosophy on life to inspire me to chase what made my heart race. It came at a time of my life where I decided that a career in the corporate banking world in the city of London wasn’t for me. Vivida was an outlet through which I could channel my philosophy for a way of living. It has evolved into a vehicle through which I can live my dreams, do what I love, become the best version of myself and live the best possible life. Vivida intends to do that for the whole global community. Inspire people to confront fear and do what they love. In short, to improve the quality of their lives.
By building a family and community of like minded individuals who are not just tied together by clothes but by meaningful values and inspirations on life, wellness, lifestyle, the contagious passion for the Vivida concept continues to spread, grow our global community, and thereby achieve the Vivida vision to improve the quality of peoples’ lives. What Vivida means and stands for stands it out from any other brand to ever exist.”

“I love the enthusiasm of the movement. The brand, the riders, the community behind Vivida. There’s so much positivity coming out from both the online presence and on the water. The products are of the highest quality and very well thought of; particularly the poncho towels, wetsuits and watergear... womens’ bikinis! All so functional yet beautiful. Last but not least Vivida’s lifestyle videos are inspiring and carry a strong sense of wanderlust and adventure... Something that really expresses what Vivida is about. Viva Vivida!”

“The real beauty to me of Vivida is the fact that it’s not about being a money-making machine. It’s not about being a label or a brand. It’s really about representing a project of like-minded individuals who are dedicated, inspired, focused, and willing to assist one another in achieving their passions.”

“I say «our» even though Vivida Lifestyle isn’t really mine. But at the same time, it is. Because Vivida Lifestyle is so much more than the clothes you’ll see in this catalogue. We go beyond that, but the brand keeps us together. We are a movement, a group of people who are passionate about life, and about first times. We cheer each other on, we inspire each other and we hold each others’ hands through difficult times. We are friends. We are Vivida. Our goal has always been to cheer on everyone who’s taking risks and dares do what nobody else does. We want to inspire you to do that thing or create that dream that you might be scared to act upon. Because it’s when you dare to take a chance and act that you can create something fantastic.”
“Plenty of people will think you’re crazy, no matter what you do. Don’t let that stop you from finding the people who think you’re incredible. The ones who need to hear your voice, because it reminds them of their own. Your tribe. They’re out there. Don’t let your critics interfere with your search for them. Find your tribe. Love them hard. #vividalifestyle”

“I don’t think there’s a better brand that I’d want to be apart of. From the customer service, the simplicity of the website and the kindness of the people who run it. Vivida’s products are of the highest quality and the diversity in the clothing is outstanding. Lastly, the Vivida team and community are as friendly and as fun as you can imagine. There is never a boring day around them!”
