Brand to Watch: Talia Collins

When a former Vogue stylist launches a collection of sustainable swimwear, chances are it’s going to be good. Talia Collins did just so when introducing her eponymous line for the current spring-summer season. And just in time, we’d say, for a perfect eco-friendly one piece or bikini doesn’t come along too often; and hers sort of are.

You’d think we’d eventually tire of putting words like simple and sophistication together and calling it exciting, but we don’t, and neither do we feel the need to refrain from combining timeless with contemporary to describe an appealing cut and silhouette – at least not when it’s an actual truth. That’s to say: all Talia Collins’ designs are Make it last approved, and so is the choice of fabric.

Having a close and personal relationship with the ocean, Collins found it natural to design the swim line in a high-performing blend of ECONYL®, which has been ethically produced from discarded fishing nets and plastic litter, and Xtra Life™ Lycra®. Not only a do-good fabric, the Italian-made material is also said to be chlorine-resistant, sun-blocking, supportive, shaping and extra durable; checking so many boxes. 

In an effort to protect the marine life from the damaging effects of discarded nylon fishing nets, Talia Collins has also teamed up with Healthy Seas Initiative to help collect the nets for the ECONYL® yarn, and will be donating 10% of their global profit to the NGO every year going forward.

And, not forgetting to close the loop, Collins is encouraging customers to send back worn out swim pieces from the collection for recycling in exchange for a 20% discount voucher. So, that’s it: we’re sold.
