NEW YORK, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- UNTUCKit, one of the fastest-growing retail brands in North America, announced today a partnership with Fair Harbor, a sustainable lifestyle brand that creates men's and women's swimwear using post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
UNTUCKit's expertise in the world of design combined with Fair Harbor's focus on sustainability have inspired an exclusive collection of eco-conscious swimsuits; each swimsuit is made from eleven plastic bottles collected from oceans and beaches.
The collection features three of Fair Harbor's classic fits in six colorways: The Boardshort in red and blue stripes as well as a water photoprint; The Swim Trunk in blue stripes and a beach wave photoprint taken by surf photographer Mike Nelson; The Anchor Swim Short in a red scalloped style and a blue scale print. The six styles are shoppable on UNTUCKit.com, in select UNTUCKit stores and on FairHarborSwim.com.
"We're excited to be partnering with Fair Harbor, an incredible brand whose inspiring mission has resulted in such a great swimwear collection! We're looking forward to helping them develop their business, especially as they're in their early stages, while learning from them how to become a more eco-conscious company ourselves. We couldn't have picked a better first collaboration partner," says UNTUCKit co-Founder and CEO Aaron Sanandres.
In addition to the product collaboration, UNTUCKit has taken the initiative to help grow the Fair Harbor brand by incubating the swimwear company's executive team in-house at UNTUCKit headquarters. As experienced retailers in the fashion and entrepreneurial world, UNTUCKit has begun offering real-time insights into helping scale the Fair Harbor brand and business. In return, Fair Harbor has offered their insights on how to help UNTUCKit become more sustainable and more eco-conscious in their business practices.
"My sister Caroline and I are honored and thankful that we have the opportunity to work alongside the staff and executive team of UNTUCKit, who are on the cutting edge of combining a digitally native platform with a strong retail presence. Overall, it has been extremely exciting and helpful to work with the UNTUCKit team, especially Chris and Aaron - who have been exceptional mentors - as we continue to scale our business. We are growing very quickly and are thrilled to share this collaboration with the world," says Fair Harbor co-Founder and CEO Jake Danehy.
