Bondi Born is an innovative luxury swimwear brand, that is designed in Bondi by Dale McCarthy.
Dale designs swimwear that enables women to feel fabulous on their day at the beach through fashion-forward shapes and luxury fabrics that sculpt and flatter the body.
The Bondi Born woman is stylish and sophisticated yet understated, empowered and independent - she embraces life and wants to live it to the max - but without compromising the world or her soul.
Bondi Born's Main Collection is made in Sydney and comes in a edit of rich, seasonal colours that are crafted from an innovative new fabric called Neospan, which we use because of its superior technical properties including breathability, silky-smooth feel, intense colour, structural support, contouring and wearer comfort.
Our Limited Edition Babe Collection is inspired by the fun, sports luxe spirit of Bondi and is designed for the fit, active and young at heart.
The Eora Motif
Bondi's culture is stylish, chic and contemporary. It is also very respectful of its original inhabitants who were known as the Eora people. Bondi's famous Icebergs ocean pool flies both the Australian and the Aboriginal flags - just another of the many things we love about this place.
The Eora people named Bondi using the sound of the waves; “BON”... the waves booming on the shore, then “DI”… as they sigh away.
Our Bondi Born motif is taken from a painting we commissioned contemporary indigenous artist, Lara Went, to create for us. We asked her to do a painting that captured the spirit of Bondi. The dots in the middle, which form our motif, represent Bondi as a meeting place, where people come together and enjoy the beauty of the beach.
We hope that through the Bondi Born collection, no matter where you are in the world, you too can feel the chic and uplifting spirit of Bondi.
The Designer - Dale McCarthy
Founder and Creative Director, Dale McCarthy launched Bondi Born in 2015 with the desire to create Australia’s most luxurious swimwear brand to share the uplifting spirit of Bondi, Australia's most stylish and iconic beach.
Dale knew she would need to work with the best-in-the-business to achieve her dream. To create her collections she seeks out the world's most innovative, premium fabrics and trims then surrounds herself with a team of expert swimwear makers in Sydney, the swimwear capital of the world.
Dale's goal is that her swimwear helps her customers, stylish women from around the world, feel beautiful, confident and empowered.
Two years later, Dale has grown Bondi Born from the studio in her Bondi home to selling globally in stores that include Selfridges and Harrods in the UK, Four Seasons Hotels in Hawaii, Germany's KaDeWe department stores and Vaako department stores in Turkey.
Dale is currently working on Bondi Born's first luxe Lycra collection, so be sure to watch this space and keep in touch with Dale and her inspiring team through Bondi Born's Instagram and subscribe to our newsletter.
