Bare essentials.

Words by

Zoe Beer

Simplicity is key with Matteau Swim.

The label is all about subtlety in design and a focus on fit. Their minimal range of one and two-pieces comes in three colours only: black, navy or pale khaki.

Sister duo Ilona Hamer and Peta Heinsen wanted to strip swimwear down to its essential elements, to enhance the beauty of the modern woman.

They also get cool points for tapping Australian mega-babe Phoebe Tonkin for the shoot. The perfect gal for it, Phoebe’s relaxed natural style is synonymous with the brand’s calm aesthetic.

Available now at désordre.
