Amir Slama’s chic swimwear elevates the bathing suit to high-fashion status, for both women and men. Bright colors, splashy patterns, and dramatic cutouts embody the exotic and playful spirit of Slama’s native Brazil, where he launched the line in 1990.

Slama left the company last year, but Alexandre Herchcovitch has stepped in as creative director.
