Oahu Bikini Top
This swimwear is made ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon, a significant percentage of which comes from fishing nets recovered from the sea. These Ghost nets amount to over 600,000 tonnes of lost gear every year. The main hazard is to marine life – from invertebrates to large marine mammals. They continue to fish, long after they have
been abandoned, and account for the loss of many lives. The netting, very slow to degrade, scrubs coral, creating a desolate seascape where they are dragged over the reef by shifting currents. Now, all over the world, dive teams are removing these ghost nets from the wrecks and reefs, often at great depths, and bringing them up to the surface where they can be recycled. ECONYL® yarn is made by Aquafil – an Italian company which has developed an ingenious process to recycle nylon fishing nets (and other nylon waste) back into first grade quality nylon yarn.
Ghost net is collected by divers…
…and turned into yarn for technical oceanwear.
When our new Destinations swimwear collection arrived in the office, we couldn’t get our kit off fast enough! As jumpers and jeans went flying, we thought it would be helpful to record our honest first impressions of the styles, the fit, what we loved and what we didn’t love.
Like before, it’s not our aim to attempt to represent all women, all sizes, all skin tones – we’re only a small team and for some, even the lure of new swimwear wasn’t enough to tempt them in front of a camera! But we’re real women, real sizes, sharing the shapes we’ve got to help YOU find a style and fit you love. So join us in the fourth element changing room and let’s talk swimwear…
Our swimwear is made with active women in mind. Wether you scuba, freedive, snorkel, swim or stay on the surface, these pieces are guaranteed to stay in place when you need it most. We try and keep clear of ties and clasps which can come undone when you’re moving. Instead we’ve focussed on great fits that feel comfortable when worn under a wetsuit or on their own. Our UPF 50+ fabric is a blend of recycled nylon and xtra life™ LYCRA® which gives generous stretch and also offers extended protection against chlorine and salt, ensuring your garments perform longer and keep looking great even for the most active water women.
Fits considered for water sports…
…long lasting with UV protection.
