Elegant and functional, Hakea is designed to inspire confidence with thoughtful shapes and styles that celebrate diversity of the female form.

Hakea is the water baby of designer Casey Eastwell. Like all of us Casey dreamt of making her work, her pleasure and has melted a love for design, sunshine and exploring into her brand. Frustrated with a lack of swimwear that made her feel confident or resembled her own style while she travelled and surfed, Hakea is her solution.

The latest collection features hand painted prints by local Melbourne artist Zev Tropp across surf suits and interchangeable tops and bottoms made with Vita Xtra Life Lycra, an Italian fabric produced using ECONYL fibre, a recycled yarn made entirely from nylon waste including fishing nets from the oceans and fabric scraps from mills.

Swim in them, live in them or both – travel lighter with versatile pieces that will become an extension of your wardrobe staples for many summers to come.
