Elegant and functional, Hakea is designed to inspire confidence with thoughtful shapes and styles that celebrate diversity of the female form. Swim in them, live in them or both – travel lighter with versatile pieces that are an extension of your wardrobe staples.”
Hakea believes in giving mother nature as much goodness as she gives us. On our journey to take care of our bodies and our environment they have crafted swimwear from recycled Italian lycra and thick nylon spandex, that will retain its shape and extend its lifespan.
Hakea endeavours to craft pieces that allow us to travel lighter with designs that are wearable in both the surf and the street. Each purchase comes in reusable packaging as they aim to minimise waste and encourage reusability. At Hakea people are always growing and learning about how to reduce our negative impacts on the environment and whilst they do, they promise us transparency and reliable information so that we can feel confident in the quality and impact of our purchase.
Hakea swim has just launched its second complete swim collection, ‘Ochre’.
Designed by and for women, the range includes mix and match separates, rash guards and one-pieces. Based between Byron Bay and Melbourne designer Casey Eastwell set out to combine the desire for functional, versatile swim and surf wear that celebrates the female form and doubles as everyday wear – allowing us to travel lighter. Hakea is created in limited runs, reducing waste. They allow consumers to make mindful choices, to invest in long-lasting pieces that will become much-loved staples for years to come.
The latest collection, Ochre, includes cropped rash guards and long-sleeve surf suits that are the solution for surfing women who want modest, form-flattering swimwear without compromising on sun protection or quality. While bikini tops and bottoms in mustard, clay, olive, taupe, black and more can be mixed and matched, and tailored to your desire for full or partial coverage.
Though designed as swimwear, Hakea’s timeless pieces are designed to take you beyond the ocean and pair easily with your summer outfits. Wear a one-piece or rash guard for stylish sun protection as you take on the beach and surf, or as a statement piece with your live-in shorts on balmy summer nights.
Ochre features a print collaboration with Melbourne-based artist Zev Tropp. Inspired by tonal and rolling desert landscapes, the paintings can be found across statement surf suits and two-piece sets and are printed onto Xtra Life Italian lycra woven with ECONYL® regenerated nylon made from fishing nets and other nylon waste; designed for the woman who wants to give back what the ocean loans her.
