Tropic of C: Come swim with me

Positioned either side of the equator, the tropics were named more than 2000 years ago when sun was in the Cancer constellation. Just as the tides ceaselessly follow the cycle of the moon and stars, there, the summer never ends. In creating a sustainable swimwear brand, Candice, the owner of the brand, hopes to keep it this way.

Swimwear by TROPIC OF C is inspired by vintage silhouettes with a modern approach. It is a mix of European elegance and Brazilian ease and focus on fit and the curves of the female form raw glamour powerful femininity. The collection features a signature high cut leg, boomerang bottoms, corset inspired tops, and silhouettes that express a passion for dance. The earth is their color palette, and inspires texture and pattern made with the utmost respect for the planet.

TROPIC OF C strive to create a swimwear collection with integrity and respect for the planet, to work with the most sustainable materials and suppliers as possible. For this reason, 50% of TROPIC OF C swimsuits this season are made using ECONYL® regenerated nylon that turns waste problems into fashion solutions.

TROPIC OF C continually follows new developments in the sustainable textile industry. This enables them to design and produce each collection using the most eco-friendly methods available, lightening their environmental footprint a little more each time.

The brand ethos extends all the way to the packaging: from 100% recycled paper hang tags, to ‘tree-free’ stone paper packaging, and biodegradable plastic garment bags.
