It’s that time of year again! No, we don’t mean trimming trees… we’re talking about exposing some skin, getting sun-kissed, and cooling off in the water. With the coming warmer temperatures, we think some fresh threads are in order of the swimsuit and beachwear variety. So before you dip your toes in the water, cast your eyes on our list of where to buy the best swimwear looks for the beach or pool for women, men, and kids in Hong Kong.

Vipop

Vipop is a sustainable brand curator with an emphasis on Latin American designers. On top of swimwear in avant garde designs, they also offer sunglasses, sun hats, and beach cover-ups. As you would expect from the balmy environs of Colombia, Brazil, and Mexico, these countries have formed an entire culture in itself of beachwear and resortwear. Vipop’s ever-refreshing collections reflect this, with tasteful one-pieces and designer bikinis that are only available for a short period, in keeping with their commitment to low waste as well as their belief that your piece should be unique among brands-driven Hong Kong.

Baobab is one such designer Vipop works with that walks the walk and talks the talk in its eco-conscious focus. The Colombian brand’s trendy suits are made with ECONYL, or eco-nylon, which repurposes synthetic waste like industrial plastic, unused fabric, and fishing nets. For every swimsuit Baobab sells, one tree is planted and part of the profit goes toward restoring the San Andres Coral Reef.
