Making Waves in Sports Illustrated


Rocking a custom CR signature color block design, muslim model and activist, Halima Aden makes history this month as the first Muslim model to be featured in Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue, wearing a hijab and burkini.

“Thinking about design with a global mindset is very important to our brand, so contributing to this iconic moment in history is truly a dream come true. When we were approached to create a custom burkini for Halima I was so honored. Halima is making strides in the industry through her powerful voice and she is now the first model in history to wear a burkini in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. This moment in particular marks a huge win for women’s empowerment, shattering outdated standards of beauty and identity in the industry.” - Cynthia, on designing the burkini
