London-based Oceanus has partnered with Playboy to release a 31-piece swimwear collection. Founded by Hannah Attalah, Oceanus delivers 80’s-inspired glamor in every silhouette and encourages women to stand in their power through its designs.
Championing and fighting for all women’s empowerment is important to each brand as Attalah shared with Hypebae. “We worked with an amazing photographer from Amsterdam called Lois Cohan. Once she saw I was pregnant at the shoot, she immediately said to get into hair and make up. It honestly felt so liberating. There’s a real shift where women are embracing their bumps instead of feeling the need to cover up and it feels so empowering. We wanted to celebrate and represent all stages of womanhood including pregnancy. We are for everybody at Oceanus.”
The flirty range of bubble gum pink and lemon yellow bikinis features the latter brand’s signature bunny logo, making for a sultry seaside outfit. Standouts from the collection include the Giselle bikini, a baby pink twisted bandeau adorned with gold rabbit heads and is crafted from eco-friendly velvet. Paired with matching shorts, the Giselle is the perfect ensemble for those who like to look cute by the pool without getting wet. Elsewhere, the Pamela one-piece offers a fun ombre Art Deco-inspired pattern that is also available in a two-piece.
The collection’s jewelry celebrates Playboy in the form of pink and gold bunny earrings, alongside a matching necklace and nostalgic lock necklace.
