Ionie Chamilaki

Department: Man and Identity


A bathing suit shouldn’t only be for swimming, believes Ionie Chamilaki. In her Pronkpak collection, each piece is designed for flaunting as well. Inspired by 1920s bathing suits, Chamilaki combines specially developed sheer knits with silky lycra. Smooth rubber trimming along the edges eliminates the need for seams, while providing a decorative detail. The resulting clean-cut, sporty silhouettes contrasted with revealing insets create a subtle tension. Cubist forms in the fastenings provide the finishing touch. A collection destined for stylish poolside lounging and sunset strolls along the promenade.
