First launched in 2009 by New York based designers Carl Cunow and Nathan Romano, Cunow got his start in clothing by working as a product developer for Steven Alan before launching this label. Incorporating certain techniques typically reserved for luxury wear like bonded hems and seamless construction, Onia works to create clean lines and finishes throughout their line. With a focus on fit and an adaptable nature to flatter various body types, they create each collection with versatility in mind for the wearer. With swimwear, they focus on classic silhouettes with comfortable features like a elasticized waistband and offered in a selection of lengths, plus they create Onia art in-house for their prints, to maintain the brands aesthetic. The brand also offers a few clothing staples like Supima 60s jersey fabric henley's and linen jersey t-shirts.
"The Onia philosophy was established upon our company’s commitment to producing the finest swim and ready-to-wear garments possible. We are dedicated to developing clean silhouettes crafted from high-quality materials and technical fabrics in innovative fits and styles. Our products embody a refined aesthetic and feature versatile and transitional designs that can be worn for a broad range of activities. Each piece is rigorously tested and well-constructed from luxurious fabrics sourced from the finest factories worldwide. Minimal, yet meticulously crafted to the most minute detail; durable, but still soft and comfortable from the first wear; stylish without being subject to the vagaries of seasonal fashions, our clothing is designed with a sense of timelessness."
