Paolita, is a British premium swim and resort wear brand, based in London and founded in 2010 by Anna Paola.
The brand takes inspiration from the multicultural buzz of London, the laid back lifestyle of Greece where Anna Paola grew up, and the warmth and spirit of South America.
Each print is meticulously hand drawn by her and printed onto the fabrics in Lake Como, Italy. The designs involve extensive research in libraries and museums, combining creativity with an informed perspective on design, coloring, and ergonomics. The shapes and styles of the swim and resort wear are designed to be flattering, sophisticated and timeless.
The brand has become synonymous with print, and yet the classic shapes in block colours are sleek, stunning and true to the brand's ethos, which is to always make the woman wearing Paolita feel beautiful.
Born to a Greek father and a Mexican-American mother, and raised in Greece, Anna Paola’s designs capture her cross-cultural upbringing under the sun of the Aegean islands and the coasts of Mexico.
