Swimwear as a product and an experiment. An innovative swimwear design pioneer.

_From the land with no sea_




“During my studies, I have become interested particularly in swimwear for several reasons. One of them was my relation to the water as both unrestrained and at the same time soothing natural element. Firstly, swimming is an activity, where body and mind get harmonized and under certain circumstances, it might become almost experience of the transcendental character. The founding of my own swimwear label was the opportunity to share those specific emotions with others through this unique garment.


Secondly, I perceive the limitedness of form and material as a challenge and an opportunity for innovation. My goal is to cover both the history of the material used for swimwear production and the current tendencies and possible future transformations or functions of this piece of clothes.”
