Kowtow’s sleek new swimwear collection draws from modern art

Words by Maki Morita

Bold, art-inspired, and ethically manufactured designs.

Kowtow’s latest swim collection draws from the geometric shapes of Bruno Munari, Piet Mondrian’s De Stijl paintings, and Yves Klein’s iconic blue pigment.

The results? Beautifully sleek bathers with clean lines and bold colours.

Kowtow is renowned for its commitment towards ethical and sustainable design, which is embodied in through the use of ECONYL®. Manufactured in Italy, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is made from pre and post-consumer nylon waste material such as discarded carpets, plastic components and ghost fishing nets.

The swimwear collection is accompanied by two limited edition sarongs, which have been hand-loomed by a small group of artisans in India using fair trade certified organic cotton.

In line with their environmental philosophy, Kowtow offer a take-back programme for their shoppers. Kowtow swimwear can be returned once they are no longer needed, and the regeneration process will be continued.

The collection will be available online and in stores from October 31.
