For Something Colourful: Bond Eye
If you’re a fan of the ultra-comfy, ultra-stretchy scrunch fabric made popular by Hunza G, then you’ll love Bond Eye. With 80s-inspired colourways and high leg cuts, its pieces are guaranteed to inject a bit of fun into your holiday wardrobe.
If you’re looking something sexy with a playful twist, check out Fisch. Bold prints, bond-girl esque balconette tops and cut outs are a frequent appearance and with its entire collection made from recycled ocean plastic, the brand’s pieces are a great choice for the planet, too.
For Something Grown Up: Monte & Lou
Founded in 2018 in Australia, Monte & Lou’s sophisticated designs aren’t without substance – with fabric that’s supportive but not restrictive, pieces are made using recycled materials and quick-drying technology.
With an emphasis on fit, simplicity and premium fabrics, Fella takes notes from retro-inspired design with balconette cups and high cut bottoms, and seamlessly blends with modern cut outs and knot detail. Colourways are simple yet chic, with a typically Aussie focus on earthy tones and soft pastels.
For Cool Minimalism: Vanessa Sposi
Established only last year, Vanessa Sposi’s Paris-designed, Portuguese-made designs are effortlessly chic – think neutral tones and minimal silhouettes. The designer herself has made it her mission to provide modern classics that stand the test of time – plus, 1% of all profits are donated to global organisations working to protect the planet.
For Flattering Fits: Wanderlust
Understated but undeniably cool, Wanderlust’s earthy-toned designs celebrate the female form with hip-skimming cuts and unusual necklines. Most pieces feature the brand’s signature textured fabric, which is stretchy, so it won’t dig in or feel uncomfortable.
Rooted in a buy less, buy better philosophy, Evarae’s classic yet contemporary pieces make for glamorous beach dressing – think waist belt detail and oversized ruffles that make a statement. Another sustainably-minded label, the brand offers a repair service and recycling initiative, so you can have your Evarae pieces mended for free for life, as well as handing over unwanted swimwear from any brand for it to be recycled.
