Gabrielle Swimwear is a luxe swimwear label based in Cape Town, South Africa. Launched in 2012 by fashion designer Gabrielle Kool, the brand’s signature botanical and nature inspired prints stem from a strong environmental background. The fabrics, printing and production are all sourced locally and selected for their quality and ethical foundations. Supporting other local businesses, minimising carbon footprint, empowering woman and providing sustainable, quality pieces are all priorities in the ethos of the label. The brand’s latest SS20 Arum Lily collection is made from REPREVE Lycra, of which 82% is made using recycled ocean plastic. Dedicated to making positive change, all future collections will be made using this material.
