Designed in collaboration with Worimi-Biripi artist Jake Simon, the Gathering Pipis men’s swim brief has been designed exclusively for Gali Swimwear’s 2023 Pride collection.

The soft pastels of the overlapping shells are transformed in the water to become rich, vibrant colours that glisten in the sunlight - a truly celebratory design.

Crafted from high-quality recycled materials, the Gathering Pipis swim brief not only looks beautiful but also performs and feels comfortable. Perfect for swimming, lounging, and long days at the beach. 

  • Made in Australia
  • Premium recycled material
  • Chlorine, saltwater and sun cream resistant
  • Fully lined in front
  • White internal drawstring

Available in two cuts:

  • Yuli (6.5cm side width)
  • Buligaa (4cm side width)

    Artwork Story

    This artwork is inspired by my childhood memories of gathering pipis. Pipis are small, edible saltwater clams.

    My family and I would camp at the Myall Lakes, part of the country of the Worimi Aboriginal people, and gather pipis on the shoreline of the beach - similar to my ancestors. The sand dunes in the Worimi Conservation Lands hold midden sites (accumulations of shells), which were created when my people would collect, cook and eat pipis. These sand dunes are recognized as the largest moving coastal dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. As the sands shift they cover and uncover these midden sites.

    In this piece the overlapping semi-circles are symbolic of the pipis we would gather. The colours are representative of both my identity as an LGBTQIA+ person, and directly of the pipis and their environment. The light pinks and purples are reminiscent of the inside shell of the pipis, while the yellows and greens represent the beach areas the pipis would grow and the surrounding wildlife areas.

    Amazing swimwear

    Love these swimwear briefs. The design is stylish and the actual brief is really comfortable with a great cut. My partner just bought himself and me another pair of Gali swim briefs, I love them so much.

    Ordered our first pair of Gali togs, for Valentine's Day for my partner, although I'm the actual swimmer 9in other words I got them for him, so I can wear them)
    Fabric and cut look great, haven't taken them for a swim yet, but from the try on they're gonna turn heads
