Creating Lysander Swim was like taking a walk on the wild side. I am a London based busy model & designing swimwear was a new territory for me. I have probably tried on more bikinis than most would have hot dinners… so I knew exactly what I wanted, the perfect fit, the quality of fabric and the sort of shapes I wanted to wear.
Being from the UK I saw that there was a gap in the market for cool, cute yet sexy bikinis... hearing friends complain that they couldn’t get their hands on fun bikinis because of the brand being based in Australia, USA, Bali etc. which meant that shipping & custom taxes were extortionate on top of buying a bikini itself! So here it is... the accessible Lysander Swim catering especially to the UK\European gals who just want to look cute.
As it's the beginning…the brand is only small and I would love to hear what all you mermaids think about it before I grow the range, my aim is to keep the collection small and edited, personal and fresh, I want to deliver unique pieces to you! Individually made with love and attention, each season offering you the must-haves to make you shine on even the hottest beaches.
Every set is personal to me, and I would never design anything for you that I wouldn’t want to wear myself ...if its not perfect, you wont find it on my site!
As these are our first pieces, we are starting small, aiming to grow, therefore this collection is limited to Small, Medium & Large. It is very important to us that we are able to cater for everyone therefore as we grow, we intend to offer more size ranges within our collections.
We are delighted and proud to say we get our stretch velvet pieces made here in our home town London, which is so important to us as we believe its important to have a personal relationship with whoever makes our pieces!
