Cairo has been hit with a wave of talent from its local designers. Whether you’re heading off to Sahel for some fun or chilling by the pool at home, a new swimsuit is a summer essential.
These swimwear brands will have the whole family looking fresh this summer:
KAI Collections @kaicollections.eg
This premium swimwear brand combines crazy patterns with quality materials to create the ultimate iconic swim shorts. KAI manufactures its products locally, challenging the stigma surrounding Egyptian brands and supporting the Egyptian economy.
Who says modest swimwear can’t be cute? Glo gives the girls a line of swimwear and accessories with modesty in mind, so hijabis can feel comfortable without sacrificing fashion. This burkini brand empowers women and keeps our beaches inclusive for everyone.
Hourglass Swim @hourglasswim
Hourglass’s multi-wear bikini tops lead to endlessly cute style options. The São top can be worn eight different ways, letting you change things up from a halter top to a bandeau and more. Double lined with thick fabric, these swimsuits have got you covered for those crazy summer days.
Salt Swimwear @saltswimweareg
For families, fun in the sun isn’t complete without their little ones. Kids from 1 to 10 years old can find unique swimsuits at Salt; a brand made just for them. Boys will go crazy for the Minecraft and PlayStation patterns, while girls can find shimmery bikinis, off the shoulder one-pieces, or multicolour trikinis.
Fu Swim @shopfufa
Farah El Ashiry founded FUFA in 2014 after creating a beach line out of her grandma’s fabric collection. Since then, she’s grown to make playful swimwear that ranges from bikinis to more modest options. Inspired by Egyptian culture, FUFA’s styles are made after visiting different spots in Egypt and capturing that culture in a finished look.
Sunkissed Swimwear @thesunkissedswimwear
This season, Sunkissed is hitting the shores with bikinis and one-pieces focused on fit, quality, and style. The brand was created by two sisters who were so fed up with the lacklustre swimwear options available that they decided to go out and create their own. Their sexy styles still keep comfort in mind with adjustable straps and padded cups.
