For a decade, Charlotte Olympia’s plucky, pin-up-inspired designs have winked to the past. But for its 10-year anniversary, the brand, founded by property heiress Charlotte Olympia Dellal, is embracing change by teaming up with Brazilian designer Adriana Degreas for its first swimwear collaboration—a capsule collection of bikinis and maillots, cheeky swim caps and water-safe sandals for both adults and children.
Bursting with bold prints and rich colors on high-waisted, ‘50s-esque silhouettes, the collection draws inspiration from golden age-star Carmen Miranda. “She represents the playful spirit of our country, the exotic and glamorous beauty with so much attitude and style,” says Degreas.
Degreas and Dellal also have overlapping clientele, like Emma Roberts and Poppy Delevingne—an It-girl pedigree that’s channeled in the capsule collection’s campaign featuring Swiss socialite Sabine Getty. “I’ve always wanted to work with Sabine and thought this was the perfect time to collaborate,” says Degreas. “She is a muse of mine and also a very close friend of Charlotte’s.”
