Although you might not think so from the name, Fighetti is a genuine Dutch brand name. The men behind this brand of swimwear were inspired by the azure blue Amalfi Coast just south of Naples.
With its perfect coast, numerous narrow streets, fantastic views and picturesque villages, Fighetti is a homage to Italian lifestyle: the Italian love of simple products and the classical Italian approach to high quality at all costs.
Fighetti has been making high quality swimming shorts, which can also be worn as normal shorts for around three years now. Fighetti’s philosophy is: it’s never a bad day to wear swim shorts.
The idea behind these swim shorts is that they should not only be comfortable in the water, but out of the water as well. This is why the swim shorts are cut just above the knee and made from comfortable, thin material.
These swim shorts are also extremely well suited to be worn as normal shorts, thanks to their high quality and perfect fit. Fighetti’s swim shorts also have two zip pockets big enough to carry an iPhone 8 Plus.
Fighetti’s philosophy is also based on the principle of 100% sustainability and a socially responsible production processes.
For this reason, Fighetti’s shorts are not made from the traditional blend of cotton and polyester, but from ocean refuse, such as old fishnets, plastic soup and consumer rubbish. This refuse is first spun into threads which are then used for compiling the material. To be able to produce its collection in this way, Fighetti has joined forces with Econyl. Econyl’s materials are made from the highest quality and consist of 100% reclaimed refuse.
The swim shorts are currently available in five bright colors which subtly hint at the azure blue Amalfi Coast. Their success has not gone unnoticed by various Dutch magazines either, who proclaimed their product “best swimwear.”
The success story of the Dutch company Sanwin Beachwear started when a Dutch pilot combined his love of travel with his passion for fashion design. He draws his inspiration from the beautiful beaches he visits when he is not flying.
Although he had long been searching for a suitable brand of beachwear for men, he just couldn’t quite find the brand that satisfied all his high demands with regard to comfort, style and quality.
This led him to come up with the idea of starting his own exclusive label of men’s beachwear. The result was a combination of high quality materials and cutting edge, bold, contemporary design. Together with a Dutch partner he eventually launched Sanwin Beachwear.
Their philosophy is that simply looking good just isn’t good enough. Besides swim shorts in unicolor and prints Sanwin Beachwear also offer beach bags, T-shirts and armbands made from rope.
