Swim wear designer Anne Pachan introduced the organic beauty of the Aeolian archipelago to the chic island of Manhattan with an enchanting 22-piece collection.

Pachan not only conjures the Aeolian essence with her lush, mouth-watering hues, but also draws upon her own childhood memories of the island locals during the 80s, when women added an element of layering to their swim wear.

The focus of this collection is the exquisite workmanship: solid colors in fuchsia, jade, lapis, and plum are texturized by the subtle addition of linear mesh detailing along the busts of triangle bikini tops, and also layered along the fronts and backs of sexy one-piece suits. In addition to this element of texture is her use of Japanese knot work, giving these summertime wardrobe staples an artistic sentiment. And one of the most appealing aspects about Ms. Pachan’s designs is the practicality of her swim wear; a collection that will complement the varying shapes of all women. Well done!
