The Rachael Wang x Ookioh collection debuted earlier this week, and with its ultra sleek, classic silhouettes, it’s likely going to be everyone’s go-to swimwear brand for the final stretch of summer.
When the pandemic hit, Rachael Wang was in the middle of producing a new collection with the sustainable swimwear brand Ookioh.
“That those women are paid fair wages and work in safe environments is of the utmost importance to me, so those considerations were at the forefront of my initial conversations with Ookioh.
“We must take into account the fact that toxic pollution and hazardous waste contamination sites tend to be located near low-income communities of color,” Wang says.
Now with the collection launch successfully underway, Wang is looking forward to more quiet, unproductive moments.
