Signature Look: Feline swimsuits with a nostalgic nod and “less is more” architecture. Picture a young Elle Macpherson on the cover of French Elle or Grace Kelly’s flawless pool form in High Society.
Perfect Outing: Lounging by the ozone pool at your private villa in Paros.
Designer DNA: Sophie Deloudi studied fashion at the Istituto Marangoni in Milano but devoted herself to interior design for 20 years before turning her skills to swimwear. The gamble appears to be going swimmingly: her luxury swimwear now has a strong international following, with stockists across Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Switzerland, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the UK. Characterised by clever cutaways, smooth form, and simple geometry, her swimsuits have a classic elegance that recalls bathing belles of the 1950s. Deloudi’s sophisticated resort wear is inspired by her favourite off-radar Greek island muses: Amorgos, Symi and Kimolos – but one-pieces are her enduring passion. “You can express your creativity more with one-pieces,” agrees Sophie, “they better reflect the personality of the designer.”
Who wears it: Classy summer sirens with a strong sense of their own style - and an allergy to Brazilian bikinis. For Athens stockists visit here.
