Designer Profile

Honubelle is swimwear made for women that live to play in the elements: ocean and wind. Honubelle is sexy, sporty and functional swimwear for women who are passionate about surf and wind sports. The brand encourages women to embrace their confidence and show off their feminine side. Every Honubelle piece is designed with quality, detail and function in mind. Honubelle promotes sustainable fashion by choosing only high-quality, long-lasting Italian fabric, which is made from yarn that is 100% regenerated from discarded waste materials such as old fishing nets.


Women who wear Honubelle will feel connected to the ocean wherever they are, and feel as powerful as the trade winds.
