Say what you want about the Kardashians, they have great taste in swimwear. So when Isidora swim emailed me and shared pics of Kim & Kourtney wearing their threads, I took notice.
Isidora is the brainchild of Aussie Helena Barroso, who went on a holiday to Spain and was shocked at the Spanish youth unemployment rate. In September 2015, when she visited, it was at 46.7% – and Oxfam predicted that 18 million, a staggering 40 per cent of the population, were at risk of social marginalisation within the next decade.
Her first collection in 2016 was set up in the small Spanish town she visited, with the aim of providing work for the 2,000 residents. Now, three years on, her business is still based in Spain and committed to providing work for Spaniards.
Isidora also uses sustainable Italian Nylon, 100% regenerated from marine litter like discarded fishing nets.
Oh, and the styles are pretty great, too.
