Excellent designer swimwear fashion tips today? Sabharwal launched Giejo in 2012 to fill a void for cool, mix-and-match swimsuits that weren’t too expensive or too skimpy—“swimsuits I could wear in front of my boyfriend’s parents,” as she puts it—but they’re also sustainably produced. She uses only vintage and reclaimed swim fabrics that she personally hand-sources from warehouses in the Tri-State area, which also happen to be much softer than today’s brand-new swim materials. Instead of working on a collection six months in advance, she hits the warehouse a month or two before market begins and digs for inspiration—literally. “Each collection just depends on what fabrics I find,” she tells Vogue.com. “I never know what I’m going to get!”
Tired of the same old prints? So was Giejo’s creator, who set about creating separates focused on fashion forward styles. Using vintage and reclaimed materials sourced from New York’s Garment District, you know you’ll be getting something unique. The collection is small and refined and guides you to choose the kind of clashes that work. With their brightly coloured bohemian trims, these bikinis and one pieces are an Instagrammer’s dream. Each piece is handmade and lacks the unsightly and uncomfortable clasps and fastenings that are found on most. With their lollipop brightness and streamline cuts, it’ll be difficult to choose just one. Discover additional information at designer swimwear.

Your line is called giejo – where did this name come from? When I was younger, my mom called me giejo. It all started because my brother had a hard time pronouncing my name and called me something to this effect. It just kind of stuck. I attribute my sense of style to my mom and in a way named the collection in honor of her. What is the price range? Where will it be sold? The collection ranges from $76-$88 for bottoms and $96-$108 for tops and will be available at Dagny & Barstow as well as Creatures of Comfort in the city, Dear Fieldbinder in Brooklyn, Madison in California at their LA, Malibu and Beverly Hills locations, and Tenet in South Hampton, as well as my e-commerce site shopgiejo.com.
