Australian boutique swim and resort brand Monte & Lou believe all women should feel fabulous
Monte & Lou’s signature aesthetic is one of sophisticated femininity expressed in bespoke prints using Exclusive Recycled fabrics.
Founded in Sydney Australia by best friends who share 38 years of industry knowledge and proven experience within swimwear design. Their combined skills have seen them create a stylish wardrobe of covetable sustainable swim and resort wear.
Each collection is always elevated and feminine with an emphasis on quality, fit, innovation and beautiful yet functional design. At Monte & Lou we understand that no two women’s bodies are the same and we design with that very uniqueness in mind. Our garments are distinguishable by the attention to the finer details of construction, everything is created with care down to the bespoke branded hardware.
We believe sustainability is no longer a choice it’s a necessity and we are responsible for considering the environmental, social and economic impact of the garments we create as well as being conscious of the environmental damage to our oceans created by plastic and chemical pollution.
Years of experience in textile development has seen us create our own unique fabrications. Our exclusive Recycled Quick Dry swim fabric and Recycled Body Sculpting lining have been knitted with 85% GRS Certified Regenerated Nylon yarn spun from recycled pre and post-consumer materials such as plastic bottles, fishing nets and carpet fibres and blended with a high elastomeric stretch percentage for ultimate comfort.
All the fabrics used in our swimwear meet OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 – the highest certifiable standard for ensuring the responsible manufacture of our fabrics and the elimination or reduction of toxic chemicals used in their production to help protect our fragile environment.
We have also introduced environmentally sustainable alternatives within our supply chain, choosing to be consciously plastic free and 100% biodegradable and compostable, ensuring less waste is transferred into landfill. By contributing to the sustainable fashion movement, we are directly reducing our global impact on the environment.
At Monte & Lou we are well known for our luxurious exclusive printed and plain Recycled fabrics that are lightweight and engineered to provide a garment that not only feels beautiful against your skin, but is also quick to dry, which means no more sitting in a damp swimsuit.
All our garments are fully lined in our exclusive Recycled smooth to touch nylon elastane which sculpts the body and feels like silk. The combination of our two fabrications, both lightweight and fast drying, along with a generous elastane content gives each Monte & Lou swimsuit superior supportive qualities.
Our unique designs embody our brand ethos which is synonymous with sophisticated femininity.
We design to inspire all women to embrace their own individuality with confidence.
Monte & Lou delivers the ultimate swimwear edit for a holiday lifestyle with styles you will love to live in.
