New stores & collections
Naila swimwear collection 2014
Inspired by the designer’s French upbringing and love of the sea, this collection includes monokinis, deep-plunging one-pieces and bikinis with crochet detailing. There’s also an eco-friendly men’s range of coloured trunks made using recycled fabrics. The range received a warm welcome at Mercedes Benz Fashion Swim Week in Miami, and we’re confident the label will be a big hit in Dubai.
