Thoughtful design.
Unsurpassed quality.
Timeless style.

Flagpole is designed for the modern woman, by modern women. 

We design architecturally inspired swim and resort wear for the woman who is fearless in her ambition, unafraid to fail, seeks adventure, and always has her friends' backs.

Our women's collection launched in 2014, followed by men's swim in 2018. 

We strive to create the best fitting and looking swim you have ever worn. To achieve this standard of quality, we design and produce our collection in New York City. 

Humble Roots

Seventeen years ago, in West Palm Beach, Megan Balch and Jaime Barker were seated in alphabetical order in a high school science class.

They quickly became inseparable sharing a love for dance and the South Florida beach culture. They would spend hours after school sitting on their favorite beach discussing plans to one day start a business together.

Years later in New York City, it would be Balch and Barker's search for stylish swimsuits that fit and functioned like a leotard that would lead to the creation of Flagpole. ...that, and friendship.

Growing up, their favorite beach was called Flagpole.
