A discreet flirt with the glamorous 50’s and bold 60’s, as well as repetitive lines and geometric patterns, inspired designer Sophie Deloudi for her summer 2016 swimwear & beachwear collection. It’s defined by cubistic and op art patterns in color combinations that are based on the principles of elegance, appearing in “color”, one-piece swimsuits and bikinis, but also in the beachwear that accompanies them. Loose skirts, shorts, jumpsuits and robes, all without zipper – so as not to limit body and mind – complete the collection, alongside with spacious bags for the beach, as well as for an early evening cocktail.

Different types of swimsuits, with sharp lines, that underline the charm of the female body or “embrace” it, play both with the athletic form that the designer loves and with the languid mood of summer freedom. A simple bikini stands out due to its bonding, while an “austere” swimsuit knows how to highlight the silhouette – always in perfect harmony with impeccable stitching and lining. Meanwhile, retro geometric prints make a bold fashion statement. The choice of colors is based, once again, on the principles of discreet intensity: luminous tones of indigo blue, “burning” orange and deep plum match perfectly with light lavender, sensual burgundy or khaki-gray.
