Late last week, affordable basics brand Grana — if you’re not familiar, the Hong Kong label’s style (and price point!) falls somewhere between Uniqlo and Everlane — launched new swimwear for both men and women, and it’s cute.
The men’s collection includes three swimshort styles in a bunch of colors and a few simple prints: a 4-inch tailored trunk, a drawstring trunk, and a 6.5-inch tailored trunk. The women’s collection is more extensive, with two different one-pieces (a deep-V and a scoop back), three bikini bottom styles (high-waisted, regular briefs, and string-tie briefs), and four bikini top styles (bandeau, triangle top, racer-front halter, and bralette-style) that you can mix and match, all available in black and two colors that feel very 2017: olive green and a pale, beige-y pink.
The look of all the suits totally hits the minimalist swimwear nail on the head, echoing those hyper-popular solid-colored one-pieces we’ve seen from brands like Nu Swim, Her, and Baserange — but at a much, much more affordable price point. Men’s suits start at $39, while women’s pieces start at $29 for bottoms; it’s $65 for a one-piece.
