Full of peroxide wigs, tan lines and women who would definitely try to steal your man, the visuals for Oceanus’ swimwear collection are a Malibu Barbie dream.
Shot by Hunger favourite Nadia Lee Cohen in California and with more than a few Donatella Versace references, they’re a nostalgic introduction to the new brand inspired by 1980s mob wives.
Childhood friends Hannah Attalah (a fashion graduate) and Alexia Frangakis (a fashion entrepreneur) created Oceanus when they noticed a gap in the market for luxe, fashion-led swimwear.
Incorporating intricate embroidery, bold prints and metallic fabrics – the pieces blend swimwear with evening wear. “We are designing for the kind of woman who’s not afraid to make a statement, who would wear our swimwear straight from the pool to the party!” says Hannah, “we want women to feel empowered and body confident.”
