At Miami Swim Week, a full house of fashion editors, influencers, and top buyers were treated to a dynamic, vibrant swimwear show that featured something for everyone.
In the show's six-part collection, ribbed fabrics were contrasted with solid, simple materials, with shiny lurex and original prints on eco-friendly fabrics in violet, navy, sky blue, and coral. These vibrant offerings were shown alongside a reliable, classic essentials line of black-and-white, grey, and ivory swimwear, providing some neutral options for the more subdued.
ONEONE swim brand was founded in 2016 and is dedicated to creating high-quality, well-fitting swim suits for everyone.
While 'ONEONE' means 'sand' in Samoan, it also signifies the union of two individual pieces to create one iconic style, as well as how the company is led by not one, but two founders, Olga and Santiago.
We met in college while pursuing law degrees. After graduating and earning our degrees, we chose to quit everything and pursue our ultimate dream: developing the high-quality swim brand that would become ONEONE... We used our combined savings to design our first collection and shoot our first campaign in the Bahamas.

In an entirely new era for swimwear, in which eyes are on sustainability, ONEONE has perfected the manufacturing process. The brand is committed to sustainability and helping the planet – one bikini at a time. 'You order it, we make it,' says the brand's founders, Olga and Santiago. 50% of the bikinis are created from fabrics developed from recycled raw materials, and the made-to-order model translates to no inventory excess, which means little-to-no waste and no dead-stock.
Their pieces are made in a privately-owned factory in Medellin, Colombia, which employs over 300 female heads of household. They foster a constructive employee-led management system, ensuring that all employees are empowered and have access to ethical working conditions in a safe and healthy working environment.
Casper Magazine has long advocated for ethical practices and sustainability, and it's fantastic to see that such an ethical brand has celebrity fans like Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Camila Coelho, Jessica Alba, and Camila Cabello.
