I love a good collab, and they don’t get much cooler than this exclusive collection of surf-sport-luxe inspired swimwear by O’Neill and Bondi label First Base. The capsule seamlessly blends O’Neill technical innovation with the forward styling of First Base.
The super click range using neoprene and metallic fabrics was designed for active water babes to surf, sweat and look hot in. With so many island-hopping adventures on our trip to Samoa, I couldn’t have asked for better swimwear to wear snorkelling, exploring waterfalls and jumping off boats in.
