August Society

August Society​​​​​​​

The attractive line of men’s and women’s swimwear housed at August Society is not just about looking fantastic — it’s about feeling great about what you wear too! This Singapore-based label converts ocean-polluting plastic waste (fabric scraps, bottles, ghost nets) into stylish swimsuits, which are also crafted with in-built UPF 50+ sun protection and run-resistant Lycra Xtralife. Sticking close to their slow fashion philosophy, each piece has been intentionally designed to be reversible. Whether you go funky with tropical prints one day and solid classic hues the next — purchases from AS are sure to become long-lasting, trusty staples for your closet!

La Pêche Swim

La Peche

Bringing females extraordinary swimwear for extraordinary times, La Pêche was dreamt up by its two founders on a giant float in Ibiza. Their exclusive luxury collections are inspired by and made just for you — stylish, smart and talented women who want quality resort and swimwear as part of their holiday wardrobe. The brand sources their recycled fabrics ethically from Italy — but beyond that, they also channel $1 from every purchase towards two commendable causes: Daughters of Tomorrow (a charity empowering underprivileged women) and Project Zero (ocean conservation movement). This is your go-to destination for swimwear designs and products steeped in sensuous sophistication! Image Credit: La Peche Facebook Page

Haikini

Haikini

For females up to fearlessly chasing waves, Haikini’s line of surf swimwear can be counted on to be the ideal fit. Both cute and comfortable, the functional bikinis are designed for varied water-based adventures — and range from strappy tops which don’t skimp on support to sporty, high-waisted bottoms. Sustainably and ethically produced in small batches — the swimsuits are handmade in Bali (by artisans who are paid a fair wage) and fabric leftovers from the production are constructively upcycled into swimwear protective pouches. If you’re both a pool lounger and an adventure-seeker — there are dual-purposed options available to support surfing or sunbathing sessions! Image Credit: Haikini Facebook Page

Boho-breezy is the name of the game for this sustainable beach-wear brand — and their collections include summer dresses, Panama hats, beach cover-ups and resort wear, tummy control suits and bikinis. Crafted from planet-friendly materials like natural palm fibres and Lycra (recycled from plastic bottles), their pieces encompass laid-back chic vibes with tropical and floral prints. It’s no longer a secret — this fashion-forward boutique is stocked with high-end swimwear perfectly suited for the eco-conscious and classy-clad women! Image Credit: Coral Secret Facebook Page

This homegrown brand presents offerings of comfy, classic pieces which enhance good looks and maximise good feels! UBU stands out with an eye-popping array of fashion-friendly bikinis and one-piece swimsuits in primary colours — plus the UPF 50+ fabric ensures a handy dose of sun protection for the outdoors.

Founded by Jolynn and Valerie on a hot summer day in Ibiza as they floated on a giant blue seashell. They chatted idly about how it would be great to design your own line of resort wear. Life is too short not to take chances - that was when La Pêche was created. Their pieces are designed as wearable works of art. Each collection is carefully curated and is intricately hand-drawn from scratch. It takes 9-12 months for the entire development process. Their swimwear design combines both function and aesthetics and a beautiful balance between the contemporary and the commercial.

Their artists and designers are based around the world and always bring elements of their own personality and talent to every piece. They work with artisan groups and factories in Europe that are run in an ethical manner, that employ craftsmen skilled in their trade.

At Align Swim, they believe that practicing sustainability is pivotal in aiding the change in our lifestyle which ultimately preserves our environment. They have always been building their brand in an ethical and responsible manner. They want to eventually be able to give back more to society and also collaborate with more environmentally conscious vendors.

Challenged by the fast fashion industry, they advocate the shift to sustainable and ethical fashion. Putting the environment first, they consider the impact it makes and fuelling the choices they do - from production to distribution.
