A former ballet dancer and surfing enthusiast, Polish-born designer Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves has created a luxury swimwear brand that epitomizes poolside style. The line, launched in 2009, eschews trendy prints and typical cuts for perfectly executed silhouettes in premium fabrics. Having spent most of her life in either a ballet leotard or a wetsuit, she has created a totally modern style that’s always fresh and effortless. Marysia’s bikinis, maillots and cover-ups can be seen on the beaches of Montauk to Biarritz. The brand has been featured in leading publications such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, with a growing celebrity following that includes Lupita Nyong’o and Rachel Bilson. It is sold worldwide at over 100 retailers and stocked at stores such as Net-a-Porter, Lane Crawford, and Moda Operandi. Marysia recently relocated to Los Angeles from New York with her husband Nathaniel and their two daughters.
