DESIGN HANDWRITING

 

Curve enhancing seams, subtle panels and tapered leg lines compliment your form with elegant, sensuous silhouettes. Completely lined with no wires, clasps or fiddling, they feel and look exquisite.
Our designs work with your body, whether elongating the leg, slimming the hips or defining the waist. The feeling is sleek, sculpted and graceful.
Designed for the body not for fashion fads, these are timeless pieces to collect, that you’ll return to again and again.

 


 

 

FABRIC

 

Our fabric comes from Italy, the home of swimwear expertise, from a textile producer with 40 years of experience, innovation and technical know-how. Designed specifically for swimwear, it combines comfort, softness and performance.
The two-way stretch fabric has a lightweight fine texture with excellent shaping power that truly fits and caresses the body. It smooths, sculpts and lifts.
Not just aesthetically pleasing, it also offers UV protection 40+, excellent power retention and high muscle control, boosting micro-circulation and promoting muscle oxygenation during sport activity and when at rest. 
It’s scientifically tested for colour-fastness, chlorine resistance, acid and alkaline perspiration, as well as moisture management. And it has integrated rapiDRY technology to minimise drying time.
Our fabric works hard so you can just unwind.

 


 

 

COLOUR PALETTE

 

Discreet and sophisticated, the colours are effortless to wear and suit all skin tones.
The palette compliments the designs with warm, calm tones and a luxurious depth of colour. These hues are new classics that transcend passing trends.
The colours palette works in combinations, across select styles in colour blocks, accentuating design details and attracting the eye around the body.

 


  

  

THE STINGRAY

  

The StingRay accessory adorns all our styles.
It’s our distinctive signature, with graceful movement and finely honed senses that epitomise Ava Verdú women.
The beautiful, organic form is softly abstract. Tactile and fluid, it’s designed to feel as good as it looks, with a smooth underside that rests on your skin.
The StingRay has a practical purpose but also accessorises the swimwear, adorning the wearer with subtle embellishment for the spa, beach or sundowner moment. 
Made from Zamack, a zinc based alloy specifically used for the hardware components for swimwear, it’s seawater and chlorine resistant and has a heat preventing quality that avoids overheating in direct sunlight or damage to the skin. It’s also 100% nickel free (one of the most common skin irritants).

 


 

 

SCULPTED FIT

 

Our sculpted fit boosts confidence, enhancing your natural shape without feeling restrictive.
Integrated side boning across the bust adds support while invisible moulded cups, lightweight and soft, gently enhance.
Our swimsuits feature a concealed shelf support beneath the cups to reinforce and define the bust area. This clever feature is completely hidden from view, creating an entirely natural impression.
We fully line all our swimwear, front and back, for enhanced fit and an opaque appearance when wet. Both our swimsuits and high-waisted bikini bottoms have an integrated power mesh lining to the front that smooths and sculpts.
All our bikini bottoms feature a centre back seam that hone and sculpt the derrière.
Leg lines are intrinsic to our outstanding fit; select styles feature our signature high, tapered leg line that elongates the leg with long, sensual lines.
No detail is overlooked to make you look and feel amazing.

 


 

 

CRAFTSMANSHIP

 

Europe is the heart of luxury goods production thanks to its rich heritage of craftsmanship and unrivalled reputation for fine high quality. Made in Europe means authenticity, sustainable local production and longevity. Unsurprisingly, our swimwear is made in Europe.
With a strong heritage in swimwear and lingerie, we are fortunate to work with a team of highly skilled and innovative craftsmen in Romania. Swimwear is in their blood. Their superior technical facilities, careful construction and exacting standards ensure a very well made and high specification garment. That looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside.
Our soft moulded cups are made in France in a small family owned factory focused on their craft.
Our StingRay accessory that adorns each piece is hand crafted and finished in Spain by master artisans, specialist in accessory production.
