To do so, we design chic and versatile pieces to be worn everywhere, whether in the waves, the resort or the pool. Our creations break the boundaries between swimwear and ready-to-wear, and enhance the look of any occasion.
Our collections subtly blend sophisticated embroidery and floral prints
to form a captivating and iconic style. They are complemented by refined accessories, which will give a unique character to your summer outfits. Our swimsuits are our centrepieces. The cuts benefit from all our know-how to offer you exceptional comfort and excellent support, whatever your morphology.
Elise has been passionate about art since she was young. When she arrived in Australia as a teenager, she dreamed of a career in fashion design. After perfecting her pencil strokes on countless sketches, she completed a Bachelor of Fashion & Textiles at the University of Technology in Sydney, where she acquired solid technical knowledge and a recognized know-how. In parallel, she explored different artistic disciplines such as illustration and textile design. Inspired by iconic artists such as William Morris and Alfons Mucha, she developed her own aesthetic sensibility and started her career in ready-to-wear.
After working for major fashion houses for more than ten years and traveling all over the world, she decided to create her own brand to let her creativity fully express itself. It is in France that her project came to life in 2019. The Franco-Australian designed her collections from her family's 1930s home, located just steps from the beach. Influenced by the wild beauty of nature and the architecture of the Belle Epoque, she gives life to a universe, revisiting the elegance of Art Nouveau in the Australian bohemian spirit.
