Love Bomb: Paolita
As the winter drags on and it seems to get colder rather than warmer, I find myself constantly thinking about warm beaches and palm trees. Unfortunately the closest I am to such climates is our office heater, grateful as I am for it! Luckily, all I have to do is look at Paolita’s colourful swimwear to be transported to more exotic locales.
Founded in London in 2010, Paolita are relatively new, but this hasn’t stopped their snowballing popularity as their designs are snapped up worldwide! Their collection features beautiful mix and match bikinis, delicious swimsuits and lace hoodies, perfect for staying glamorous around the pool. The designs focus on making women feel comfortable yet sexy when at their most exposed, using shapes to complement the figure.
Paolita is vibrant and exotic, just like the founder, Anna Paola. Using Spanish and French fabrics, Anna weaves her cultural and historical passions into each garment, resulting in swimwear with a unique vintage undertone.
Carmen Miranda Violet swimsuit
Arriving in the Paolita shop soon is this gorgeous vintage-inspired swimsuit. The coloured stripes give this a distinctly nautical feel and the shape is so perfect I could imagine it even being worn far, far away from the beach as outerwear!
Another really beautiful nautical set, as you can see, I quite like nautical inspired swimwear!
Paolita are giving away 3 luscious prizes, which you can be in with the chance of winning by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name AND liking their facebook. The first prize is the chance to come to their London boutique and pick out an item from the new, not-yet-for-sale collection (don't worry, they can also ship worldwide)! The second and third prizes are a lace hoodie in blush or baby blue!
