J.CREW is an American multi-brand, specialty retailer that offers an assortment of women’s and men’s apparel including swimwear. This year, J.Crew partnered with Bantu wax swimwear, a surf lifestyle brand that represents the vibrant beach and surf culture of Africa, to create a capsule swimwear collection printed and sewn in Africa from Italian fabrics with amazing fits and quirky, colorful patterns, like the whimsical frog print.
As a surfer, Yodit Eklund, founder, launched Bantu in 2009 with the aim to bring awareness to the continent’s under-the-radar beaches.. “There is more and more pollution because people don’t value the beaches in Africa. I thought if Bantu could expose people to the beaches, we could help preserve the environment.”
Bantu uses traditional processes and works exclusively with local vendors and artisans in Africa to make quality products that are functional and authentic for surfers, urban nomads and afro-punks.
The collection ranges from $76-89 dollars per suit, but you can get it on 40% discount if you SHOP NOW
