Ward Whillas

Coming together to configure timeless minimalism and high-performance activewear, FIT graduates and Australian design partners Rosie Ward and Alicia Whillas introduced their namesake swimwear line in Spring 2015 following respective apprenticeships with Marc Jacobs and The Row. Bringing simple lines to their approach, Ward Whillas boasts sustainability in style longevity and thoughtful production. Seamless in technical design and aesthetic, Italian compression fabrics bonded by ultrasonic welding offer quick-dry pieces that are chlorine and lotion-resistant. Set apart by sculpting suits and reversible separates, the New York-based brand brings Ready-to-Wear influence to swimwear, in both elegant and athletic form.
