We're shining a light on the world's chicest, independent boutique luxe fashion labels – some which may sound familiar and some newbies that are hot on the racks. Without further ado:


This post was updated on 24th March 2022.


TRIANGL


Triangl needs no introduction – the swimwear label is a pioneer of its time and it's in most of our wardrobes, the signature block design that plastered its presence globally when it first launched in 2012. The Australian brand continues to strive in providing quality, affordable collections that fit snugly and shape an effortlessly flattering silhouette. Become a Triangl Girl and explore some of the shimmering – literally – collections available online.

MAISON LES ÉNERVÉS

MAISON LES ÉNERVÉS


The sophisticated designs at MAISON LES ÉNERVÉS can be credited to founder Wakim Krari, a French-Moroccan architect and designer based in Bali. If you're as intrigued by the funky faces hand-embroidered onto the smooth natural fibres of each unique garment, well, so are we. Lines and textures are the name of the game at this contemporary fashion house, which takes high quality fabrics and attention to detail at the forefront, while ensuring it plays its part in sustainability using recyclable and recycled materials in its making. Mix and match with the whimsical-sleek patterns or rock it all together as a set.

Abysse


This one's for the surfers and water babies. Tahitian surfer, model and designer Hanalei Reponty founded Abysse, a performance-driven sustainable swimwear label that redefines fashion's role in the sports industry. Each exquisite piece – the swim sets, wetsuits, bikinis and activewear – is made in California using 100% recycled fabrics, repurposed from discarded fishing nets. Abysse wetsuits are exclusively made out of premium Yamamoto Japanese eco-neoprene to reduce environmental impact and you can rest assured that the brand takes sustainability very seriously with its guaranteed eco-friendly process at every stage of its making. The brand collaborates with AQUAFIL for its entire collection, made from nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world that is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon.
