While some of Africa is very poor and filled with HIV/AIDs, beyond the turmoil lies vibrant beaches from Cape Town to Casablanca. In showing the sunny side of the African culture, designer Yodit Eklund created Bantu (meaning gateway) Wax swimwear to help the economy and shine light on the African culture. The pieces are laced with tribal prints and bright neon colors that are perfect for stateside beaches.
Best of all, we don’t have to travel to the motherland to buy the pieces. Check out your nearest Barneys or Opening Ceremony for the psychedelic swimies. Turn the page to view the lookbook.
