For the Spring/Summer 2022 season, leading waterwear brand arena presents a collection inspired by a Re-Generation theme centred around respect for the environment, a fundamental element of the brand’s 2021 shift of direction.
For this season, arena has set important goals to become increasingly sustainable and innovative in its production cycle, and to find solutions that mitigate the impact of its activities through the creation of products using techniques that respect the environment. One such change involves the use of recycled fabrics. The SS22 collection offers a range of new products created using sustainable fabric sources that include PET plastic bottles and industrial waste such as yarn waste and shavings, the majority of which are GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.
All new Swimwear styles and most of those in the Beachwear line feature high quality fabrics made from recycled raw materials stemming from arena’s collaboration with Carvico. For the beachwear line, traditional arena fabrics are now combined with MaxFit Eco - fabric made with significant percentages of recycled yarn - and Recycled Polyester or Polyamide for the rest of the collection.
The arena Beachwear line is dedicated to those who like their beach experience to be dynamic and sporty, expressed through diverse styles depending on how they prefer to tan while also playing sports on the sand.
For SS22, the brand’s distinguishing and cross-category ARENA ICONS collection is enriched with new men's and women's styles that reflect the iconic themes of the historic arena lines of the 70s and 80s, both in design and colour (neon blue, burgundy and butter), as well as in the manufacture of its swimsuits, which are made from recycled polyester.
This cross-category line comprises designs that can easily be mixed together - in both men's and women's versions for pool, beach and athleisure - and worn in different settings, creating outfits that become a statement by expressing a sense of freedom to wear them according to mood and lifestyle.
New to the men's Beachwear line are designs of strong character with highly original patterns. Floral motifs, geometric playfulness and contrasting colours dominate the collection, which exemplifies the brand’s commitment to sustainability.
Bodylift is arena’s female line developed to instil self-confidence and help "real women" to feel beautiful at all times, even when wearing a swimsuit. The SS22 range is now augmented by new designs made from environmentally friendly fabrics featuring new colours, cuts and yarns for swimsuits using Sensitive® FIT Reco fabric from the Eurojersey Sensitive® Fabrics range. The RECO® NYLON yarn of Sensitive® FIT Reco fabric is derived from industrial waste recycling, reducing the environmental impact while still guaranteeing optimal support so that you can feel your best whether at the pool or the beach. The new one- and two-piece creations feature colours that are in perfect harmony with seasonal trends, from floral micro-patterns to elegant styles that play with black and white.
Finally, the common thread between the Swimwear and Beachwear categories is the Rule Breaker swimsuit. Dedicated to young women who dare to step out at the pool and those who want to freely express themselves at the beach, the vibrant two-piece and reversible one-piece versions feature a yellow side clip that allows them to be put on and taken off without pulling over the legs.
