Tropic of C is a high end women’s swimwear label founded by Candice Swanepoel in 2018. With a focus on sustainability and ethical production, Tropic of C ensures that their striking designs are not created at the expense of others, while collections remain undoubtedly luxurious and timeless.
With environmental consciousness at the forefront of Tropic of C manufacturing and design, sustainability is integrated into every step of the process. Innovative fabrics are used throughout designs, such as econyl which is made of 100% recycled materials, making use of discarded waste and avoiding adding more material into the cycle. To also encourage sustainability, Tropic of C garments are made to last, incorporating timeless design with high quality fabrics to ensure longevity. Lycra xtra life, used by Tropic of C, ensures endurance of designs, fighting against fading and ensuring shape retention. Manufacturing processes are consistently improved, working to continually reduce water consumption and electricity usage from start to finish. Tropic of C also acknowledges the importance of female empowerment, working with organisations and programs throughout the world to support women.
Created with integrity, Tropic of C designs are inspired by nature and women, designing pieces that inspire confidence and joy. Their swimwear is a celebration of powerful femininity, produced in bold colours and prints and daring cuts. Animal prints, houndstooth and tie-dye are met with vibrant colour palettes in vivid collections. Classic silhouettes are offered, while more statement shapes are produced in wrap tops, racer backs, high necks and high-rise bottoms. From bright orange mini bikini tops to sleek zebra print one pieces, Tropic of C is unapologetically bold, feminine and modern.
Available through the Tropic of C website, the brand’s designs can also be found via My Theresa and Revolve.
