Who says you can’t holiday closer to home? Enter London-based warm weather label Paolita.

Featured in Conde Nast Traveller, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, InStyle and Elle to name a few, Anna Paola’s luxury swim and resort wear label is loved for its directional prints, figure-flattering silhouettes and breezy, beautiful pieces that inspire some much-needed sartorial escapism.

The American-born Greece-raised designer founded her brand in 2010, drawing from her cross-cultural upbringing and love of travel to create vibrant swimsuits, bikinis, beach dresses and cover-ups. The collection blends influences, referencing the multicultural buzz of London, the laid-back lifestyle of Greece and the warmth and spirit of South America. Anna hand-draws her one-of-a-kind prints that are energetic, timeless and unique. You’ll often spot her summer-ready looks on the Made in Chelsea cast – and Vogue Williams is a big fan.
