Dive right in – May & Hugo’s ethical swimwear makes a splash
As one of the warmer states, part of Queensland life is spending ample time in the water, so it makes sense that we are always on the hunt for the ideal togs. If you’ve been searching for swimwear that is both kind to the environment and easy on the eyes, look no further. A dynamite duo has created the perfect summertime staple in the form of May & Hugo, a creative and conscious label based in Sydney (with a heady dose of Spanish flair).
Creative couple Emily May Tait and Marcos Hugo Bello founded their brand May & Hugo in 2015 with a vision to create swim and leisurewear with a message. Built on the core principles of integrity, transparency and benevolence, the label has carved out a distinct offering in the sustainable fashion landscape. When it comes to producing these sustainable goods, it can be hard to strike the right balance between aesthetics and ethics. May & Hugo has managed to perfectly mix the two worlds, combining a love of all things natural with an element of playfulness and a signature look.
When it comes to the May & Hugo offering, conscious shoppers are spoilt for choice – the brand has released several eye-popping collections across both swimwear and activewear. From the meridian and abyss-tiled one-piece bathing suits to the block-coloured bikinis, there is a range to suit every kind of leisure seeker. The goods don’t just look fabulous – everything is crafted from Econyl (an Italian recycled nylon) or sustainably produced natural fibres such as bamboo.
