Paris Mens's SS17 Preview: Polonio Swim

June 24, 2016 BY CAPSULE


The hamlet of Cabo Polonio is a place of sanctity and stillness that leaves inhabitants, and visitors alike, with no choice but to connect with it's natural splendor, and in turn, themselves.


In each piece of the stylized swim shorts line, Polonio, inspired by this sanctuary in Uruguay, there are details that not only make pieces wearable, but pay homage to a place untouched by the chaos of the urban world. Hand-drawn prints are balanced with precise tailoring, and technical design expertise, drawing on the team's collective tenure of design stints at brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Converse.


The line's founders, Joshua Anderson and Lucia Saul, worked for athletic powerhouse, Adidas, before transitioning into creating a brand that can take you from dinner, to the beach, and back again. The spirit of travel and functional frivolity means a line that has stay, and play, power.
