If canoeing, kayaking, or lakeside camping is on your agenda this season—you'll want to pay attention to the latest drop from Aussie swimwear label Monte & Lou

If you're not familiar with this homegrown label, it was launched in 2018 and dreamt up by Kay Howitt and Lynne Tramonte. Monte & Lou is all about flattering, form-fitting shapes, bespoke prints and exclusive fabrics, body love and contouring support, and overall good quality swimmers. And this year, Howitt and Tramonte took the pandemic-induced downtime to make some sustainable switches to their brand—which is a major plus in our minds. 

They've fully-embraced the use of GRS certified recycled nylon and compostable and biodegradable packaging—with a focus is on swim pieces that are designed to last and to ultimately reduce Monte & Lou’s carbon footprint.

Their latest collection goes off-grid, inspired by the idea of reconnecting and immersing yourself in nature. Featuring 70s-inspired high leg swimmers, high waist pants, animal, floral and jungle prints, asymmetrical styling, and more—the aptly titled Holiday at Home collection is the perfect match for all the springtime road trips you have in the pipeline this season.
