When considering Nordic fashion, swimwear is not the category that first comes to mind. With long-lasting winters domineered by cold weather and frozen waters, Scandinavia seems to be a strange place for bubbling swimwear brands to take hold in comparison to the strong beach culture in Australia or the blazing summers in the Mediterranean. That is until you consider the uniquely Nordic notion of ice-bathing, swimsuit-optional saunas and sun-worshipping – all to some extent calling for stylish swimwear.

With this in mind, Vogue Scandinavia has set out to list the sartorially savvy swimwear labels from Scandinavia. So whether jetting off on a beach holiday or soaking up the sun in the archipelago, these are the 10 must-know brands to keep an eye on when sourcing your summer wardrobe.
