Emerging Australian fashion brand, onetwenty swim, is creating a new wave of sustainable and slow fashion, only selling twenty pieces of each swimwear style.
onetwenty swim founder, Sophia Calvi started the brand when she noticed a gap in the swimwear market for ethically and consciously produced one-piece swimsuits. She set a goal to design and produce limited edition swimsuits that were chic, sophisticated and suited all shapes and sizes.
With a focus on sustainability, onetwenty swim reviewed its entire supply chain process to ensure everything from the hygiene liners, hang tags and packaging are completely recyclable or biodegradable and all sourced from ethical suppliers.
“Our swimwear fabric is made from regenerated ocean waste and even the ink used in our prints is eco-friendly,” Calvi said.
“We spent time and resources to locate our manufactures who exceed the current ethical standards. I chose to only have twenty pieces per style because it is paramount to me that my customers hold a unique onetwenty swimsuit for life.”
onetwenty swim’s first collection, la partenza, is Italian inspired and showcases a dynamic range of colours and custom prints. Each piece is double or triple lined for added support and ensure the swimsuit can be enjoyed for years to come.
Every purchase receives a luxurious free gift and 10% of the net profits from each collection are donated to charity. To celebrate the launch, each customer who places an order and posts on their socials tagging @onetwentyswim will go in the draw to win a $1,000 onetwenty swim voucher and choose the charity that 10% of the first collections’ net profits will be donated to.
