As we can officially head to the beaches again for a much-needed break in Bangkok, it is equally important to arrive in high flying style.

And the hottest trend of the minute (and trillions of minutes to come)? Being eco-friendly.

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.

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 colors — blue, duck blue, navy, purple, white, black and green — will go on sale from the beginning of June.

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 fiber 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 colors are also available.

The Initial S brand has also stepped up its commitment to the environment with the one-piece Shell swimsuit, which is distinguished by a plunging neckline and a golden triangle at the back. Made in France using reprocessed plastic waste from land and sea, it is available in several colors including deep blue.

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 fiber 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.

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.
