Ever experienced the annoyance of buying a new bikini and it discoloring in the sun or falling down in the water? It’s the last thing you want on your beach vacation or day at the lake. The folks at swimwear brand Oy Surf know this struggle, and offer a fix with their stylish and supportive swimwear line. The beach-ready collection has been developed by owners Zelia and Dario who, as keen surfers, understand the importance of having reliable swimming gear that still lets you feel confident and fashionable. As for the styles, think swimsuits and bikinis with watercolor brushstrokes in neutral, mellow tones. I particularly love the painted print effect on the Zonda Swimsuit, which gives you good support without feeling restrictive – in case you do want to jump on a surfboard! The garments are very much an international effort: designed in Berlin, the pieces are made in Portugal from recycled materials, while the brand itself came into being somewhere between Zürich and Bali in 2012. If like us you can’t wait until your next visit to the pool or lake and are looking for the best kit, Oy has got you covered – literally.
