Adriana Degreas is a Brazillian designer who was born into a family with deep-rooted history in vintage shopping – stocking designers like Emilio Pucci, Azzedine Aläia, Pierre Cardin and André Courrèges, among others – Brazilian designer Adriana Degreas stepped out to combine elegant, sophisticated shapes and high-end materials, making her creations glamorous works of art.

Adriana turned to the swimwear world when she got married and started working with her husband and his family. He was in charge of a beachwear company with 60 years of tradition. In 2001, proposing a glamorous beach, she decided to accomplish an authorial project, today known as “Adriana Degreas”.

You all know how much I love sleeved swimwear because it's just so unexpected, and this baby does not disappoint!
