If you want to stand out from the crowd this summer down at Merewether Beach, then check out the swimwear designs by local brand Thalassa Swim. Created by stylist Nicole Lucas in 2017, the label is influenced by Nicole’s Greek heritage, and stocks bikini’s and one-pieces that have real attitude. Celebrating body confidence and beauty in all forms, the neon and high-cut designs bring a true European style to the Australian market. Designed right here in Newcastle, each piece is made in an ethical and sustainable factory in Indonesia and delivers designs you can be sure you won’t find anywhere else. After getting into fashion at a young age, Nicole has 13 years of styling experience under her belt. After working as the Junior Fashion Editor at Cosmo, the Senior Stylist at NET-A- PORTER and currently as Fashion and Beauty Editor of Girlfriend Magazine, Nicole noticed a gap in the Australian market for statement swimwear and brought Thalassa Swim to life to fill it. Constantly traveling to find new inspiration for her designs, you check out their eye-catching pieces over on their Instagram @thalassaswim.
