Raised in the cozy beach town of San Clemente in Orange County, Oleema and Kalani Miller have grown up with the ocean in their backyard. Being blessed with a big family full of surfers and lovers of the ocean, the girls spent their childhood either in the salty water and waves or on the beach and in the sun. These California beach girls grew up in a bathing suit-- with big smiles on their faces, sunburns on their cheeks, and sand in their hair.
Taking inspiration from friends, foreign beaches, and distant customs and cultures, the girls decided to embark on an adventure—creating a collection of swimwear that would reflect their love of travel, one of a kind statement pieces, and their appreciation for that perfect bikini. The MIKOH brand was then born.
MIKOH is derived from the girl’s last name, Miller, as well as the first initial of Kalani and Oleema’s and their younger sister’s name, Hana. In Japanese, Miko is a term that anciently meant a “female shaman” or a “female prophecy”.
MIKOH is synonymous with femininity, strength and beauty. MIKOH SWIMWEAR is a fusion of statement colors and prints inspired by the world around us, luxurious fabrics, and the perfect fitting pieces. Both seamless and hardware-free as well as having the option to mix-and-match all of the pieces, MIKOH truly is one of a kind. Mikoh has received countless credits in magazines such as US Weekly, OK Magazine, People Style Watch, Foam, Lucky, Santa Barbara Magazine, SHAPE, Cosmopolitan, and the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue!
