Abysse is a collection of women’s wetsuits inspired by the idea of bringing function and fashion together into one being. The goal is to accommodate the demand for a sport garment that will be able to remain durable in the water through active lifestyles, yet still be fashionable.
“I am Hanalei. I am from Tahiti, an island lost in the Pacific Ocean. I learned how to swim before I could walk, and that is when I discovered the beauty of nature and all the treasures in the ocean. Surfing came as a natural thing in my life, like a blessing from the universe. I have been lucky to travel the globe for surfing and modeling, it really opened up my mind and vision of the world and helped shaped who I am today. I have been able to surf in four different oceans, and countless perfect waves. Every new friend, every new culture and every new country pieced me together. I am so proud to Introduce Abysse, a collection of wetsuits and bikinis made for women who are tomboys at heart and believe the ocean is a magic place.”
Their collection of wetsuits and neoprene bikinis are 100% Japanese limestone neoprene, made out of eco-friendly rubber that is warmer, lighter and ultra durable. For over 40 years Japanese Neoprene has set the standard for quality and innovation in the neoprene industry. Their advanced manufacturing techniques involving the use of special polymers made from limestone (as opposed to petroleum based) have led to the creation of a rubber called limestone based neoprene. Limestone based neoprene has superior qualities than normal neoprene, such as ultra low resistance, superior mold ability and enhanced comfort, high heat retention, lightweight and high durability. The expansion ratio of the materials is 7 times greater than that of conventional wetsuit materials and the difference is apparent even before you get in the water through the ease in wearing the suit. Due to the superior heat retention, the body is kept warmer, decreasing body fatigue and improving performance. Lastly, limestone based neoprene is extremely durable and resistant to abrasions, allowing for a longer product life as well as enhanced performance throughout the product life. The wetsuits and bikinis are 100% designed, and hand made in California.
Luxe Tip: Japanese limestone based neoprene is a remarkable material, with a great deal of qualities but can be fragile you do not take care of it properly. Rinse it in cold-water, hang in the shade out of the sun or moonlight. Do not bleach, iron, machine wash or tumble dry.
