The year was 2014. Before being the source for one-of-a-kind swimwear that it is today, Agua was merely a concept by its two founders, Fatima Rabago and Anaue Meyer. It was born from the need for easily accessible swimwear that not only possessed unique style, but also great quality and durability—one that comes in the form of quality Lycra to benefit the user with a flattering fit, and that would last more than just a couple of wears.
they also envisioned the line to show its customers how to elegantly pull prints off— even at relaxed settings such as the beach! The key, according to them, was to mix and match. Whether it’s a nice lunch by the shore, a water activity, or a leisurely stroll, Agua pieces could always be incorporated to upscale the moment. Beach trip or OOTD problems? Just throw an Agua maillot underneath jeans and a nice jacket and you’re all set!
these two create a powerful tandem, with Anaue based in Brazil to handle the production of each collection and Fatima in the Philippines to cover the brand’s overall look, advertising and selling. They continue to uphold their vision, and that is to give modern, independent women an exclusive selection of the stylish swimwear fix they crave to accompany them in their wanderlust. True enough, the brand has now expanded its selection immensely to cater to broadened tastes: from classic
bikinis, to maillots with a variety of sleeves—and it prides in its growth, never repeating a cut or print so you’re sure to find a new piece with every release!
