Stylish with a sense of permanence, Onia gives men performance swimwear with designer sophistication. Founded by Carl Cunow and Nathan Romano in 2009, the New York-based label’s name is taken from Hebrew, and simply means ‘ship’, emphasizing the ancient desire of humans to move, endure, and thrive across any and all distances of water. Taking the greatest pride in quality of product, high-end fabrics and rigorous construction stand up to chlorine, seawater, and sand, ensuring long-term reliability and lasting aesthetic pleasure. To that end, the company has partnered with venerable London fabric suppliers Liberty Art Fabrics to deliver true luxury geared towards posterity. Chino-style and traditional swimwear-inspired shorts bridge the missing link between poolside apparel and go-to casual, effortlessly moving from the water to more cosmopolitan contexts. Silhouettes and fits are tailored carefully to adapt to the wearer’s frame regardless of height, with inseams that land perfectly above the knee.
