Medina Swimwear - founded by Lou Medina, is an ethical and eco-conscious luxury swimwear brand.
Having studied at the IED Institute Europeo di Design in Milan and working at Alexander McQueen, then at the Celine atelier, she’s decided to take her wealth of experiences to start her own brand, on the grounds of Eco-conscious and Slow Fashion Philosophy.
All of the swimwear from Medina Swimwear is made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon created out of fibres from post-consumer materials removed from global waterways. It is a high-quality material that is UV-proof, sun cream, oil and chlorine resistant. Lou Medina’s motivation for instigating change, drives her to use her swimwear brand also as a platform that will support and promote a non-profit organization or project every season that is currently protecting and helping to clean the ocean. She donates a percentage of the sale of every swimsuit to these organisations.
