With our weekend schedules filling up with staycation deals, beach passes and boat trips, we need swimwear that can keep up.

There are numerous fabulous brands to choose from, but you don’t have to look far beyond the region to find chic and forward-thinking designers.

Léa the Label is not only beautifully made, but it is also sustainable. Léa Daaboul, the designer behind the brand, uses eco-friendly Italian fabrics to create chic and elegant pieces that are resistant to chlorine and sun-tan oils. They are also UV protective and are ultra-smooth to ensure a flattering fit and longevity.

All of the swim fabrics are manufactured in Bali from ECONYL® yarns that are made up of discarded fishing nets, fluff, industrial plastic and yarn cut off’s.

An avid Yogi, Daaboul studied at ESMOD in Paris, France, before pursuing a career in design and luxury buying that took her to Paris and New York after which she decided to launch her own brand.

Inspired by her upbringing in Lebanon and countless days spent on the beach, her aim is to create timeless pieces that you can turn to all year round without feeling out of sync with the trends.
