__ Cosmo Swim

The brand leading a women’s swimwear revolution in Brazil.

Cosmo Swim was only an idea on the creative mind of its founder, Lucia Hsu, when she came to us.

She wanted to shake up this established category and start an honest conversation with women about body-positivity and confidence.
