Kowtow Swimwear

November 8th, 2019

Kowtow, the Kiwi purveyors of sustainable and ethical fashion are at it again this summer, this time dipping their toes into swimwear. Lucky for us, this means clean lines and geometric shapes inspired by the futurist and modernist Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari. Known for his cut-out collages in graphic colours, Kowtow have translated these silhouettes onto the skin.

Bold colours of primary red and cobalt blue, have been taken from the palate of Yves Klein which are colour blocked against black and chalk à la Piet Mondrian. But what makes this swimwear so special is that it is made from ECONYL’s regenerated nylon, a nylon made from pre and post-consumer waste material. Discarded carpets, plastic components and ghost fishing nets have been given new life in the form of sustainable swimwear, that because it is produced on a closed loop, can be recycled again and again, without losing its tenacity.

And to keep it sun safe, the collection is accompanied with limited edition sarongs, hand loomed by artisans in India and made from fair trade organic cotton.
