The trend this year, as observed in the designs by brands such as Coco Frio, is for swimwear made from regenerated waste collected in the ocean.

As the world attempts to return to normal, maybe it is time to revitalise your wardrobe with a new swimsuit (or perhaps, even a trendy outfit).

Gone are the days of textiles that are damaging to the environment, the trend this year is for one-piece swimsuits and bikinis in fabrics regenerated from waste collected in the ocean.

Here is a selection of five eco-friendly swimsuits that are as sustainable as they are stylish. – AFP Relaxnews

Style up using leftovers

Anja Paris is offering two new sustainable collections this year, including the Upcycling range which features one of the brand's iconic models: the Vertiginous one-piece swimsuit.

Anja Paris has tapped into leftover fabric stocks at its factory to produce this feminine creation that will accompany you from summer to summer. Seven colours – blue, duck blue, navy, purple, white, black and green – are availble.

The glamour of going green

Icone Lingerie is also aiming to contribute to the preservation of the environment with a line of swimwear in recycled fabric. It includes the Venice one-piece model, which has been made from SEAQUAL, a fibre produced from plastic waste collected in the ocean.

The Venice stands out with its front and back cut-outs which create a bandeau effect for a feminine and glamorous look.

An environmental twist

Boden has opened a new chapter in its swimwear history with the launch this year of its first ever sustainable collection.

Among the models on offer, the Campania one-piece is made from Econyl yarn, which is obtained from a mix of different waste products. This model is distinguished by high-cut legs and a twist bodice.

Waste not, want not

Respect for the environment is a key principle for the Coco Frio brand founded by Gwendoline Dessi, who produces her creations from Econyl, a clothing fibre made from waste industrial plastic, waste fabric and discarded fishing nets.

This year's Positano model, which offers a sexy cut and support that will suit all shapes and sizes, features an enchanting lily print. Other motifs and colours are also available.
