Beach Picnic x A.L.C. // SWIM

In celebration of our debut sustainable swimwear collection, we had the pleasure of hosting an intimate beach picnic with likeminded brand partners and ambassadors from our ALCommunity who share our passion for sustainability. In honor of our launch we sponsored a beach clean up with Ocean Sole which will remove five tons of waste from the coast of Kenya, Africa. Ocean Sole is a social enterprise that empowers local communities to recycle by training and providing supplies to clean beaches and waterways as well as up-cycling washed up flip-flops to generate materials. We also partnered with female artisans of collective MMAA Social, located on the border of Ghana and Burkina Faso to design a custom and one-of-a-kind hand-woven bag crafted from locally procured straw and colored with vegetable-based dyes. This sustainable tote takes three days to weave by hand. We’ve added vegan leather to the handles to imbue a sense of A.L.C. ease and individuality. Our partnership will help provide income and financial independence, as well as support access to financial literacy trainings, sexual and reproductive health education, and help end period poverty. Our swimwear collection is crafted from yarn made of reclaimed ocean plastics and manufactured by a female-run factory here in Los Angeles, CA.

A.L.C. // SWIM

Crafted in the rich palette of our Summer / Pre-Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection, each style corresponds to signature prints and versatile silhouettes within the season and underscores female empowerment. 

As we continue to make more sustainable choices every day and minimize our carbon footprint, we are excited to announce our expansion across A.L.C. // SWIM and will be launching new sustainable pieces in signature silhouettes by 2023. 

We’re proud to have partnered with the following friends who also share our passion for sustainable practices: Ocean Sole, Eliou, Ghia, Vacation SPF, Rae Wellness, Gjusta Bakery, with flowers by Mallory Browne, music DJ’d by Dana Boulos, and photgraphy by Lindsay Kusterman.
