Don´t hesitate to ask me anything about the sizing and fit or if you have any special requests or are inbetween sizes.

Elegance, sustainability, fine quality– the swimwear collection by 1979 SWIMWEAR was originally inspired by the beach attire from the 40s and 50s. My line focuses on the essence of timelessness and classics, however being a modern version with reduced, clean shapes and excellence in quality and workmanship.

Video summary: Elegant and sustainable womens swimwear by 1979. Quality and beautiful designs in 6 sizes with Plus sizes coming up next!

1 9 7 9 - eco-conscious & elegant swimwear

When i started making the first cotton bikinis in Honolulu, i made them from select vintage Aloha shirts. I took the shirts apart and made bikinis from them, lining them with nylon spandex. Shirts were transformed into bikinis, each piece unique.

Honolulu inspired the retro style of my swimwear line. Fascinated by the beach wear looks of the 1940´s and 50s, the high waist bikini is always among my signature styles.

After this extraordinary happy time and 18 months in Honolulu, i moved back to Berlin, facing the decision if to continue making swimwear in a colder country. Deciding that
making swimwear is my passion, i carried on seamlessly and stayed with it.

While keeping connected to family in Honolulu, i live in Berlin and create my vision of elegantly understated high quality swimwear. From the very beginning on, i have worked eco-conscious and sustainable, long before it became so public & essential.

My workspace in Berlin-Friedrichshain is a little boutique at the same time and is called NOW & THEN. So if you visit Berlin, please come by! We also feature other local Designers from Berlin.
