You won’t find string bikinis at Pinksalt. This online brand founded by Belinda Lee and Ng Su May prides itself as a ‘modern yet modest’ swimwear label that offers unique silhouettes inspired by urban trends. The swimwear fabric that’s used is thicker to the touch and comes in a matte finish – making it perfect to be worn as a bodysuit (read: your next festival outfit).

Haikini

Tapping on her love for surfing, founder Beckie started local brand Haikini on the basis of making functional, stylish and affordable surf-swimwear available for women in Asia. Surf and swim in style with its off-shoulder bikini sets and long-sleeved monokinis decked with vibrant prints and hues which are gorgeously hand-made in Bali. Plus, every purchase made contributes to the fair wages of the talented makers. And as a sustainable and ethical fashion brand, Haikini also uses leftover fabric from production instead of plastic to create pouches that store and protect your swimwear.

August Society

August Society

As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. And in Toni Chan’s case, she’s built a swimwear brand that uses recycled waste plastic that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, or worse, the ocean. Since it launched in 2015, August Society has only used sustainable fabrics such as recycled polyamide in its seasonal collections. All tops and bottoms are mix and match, allowing for endless styling possibilities.
