Marysia May 13 2016

Maria Dobrzanksa Reeves (Marysia is her old family nickname) spent her childhood in a ballet-focused boarding school before graduating to lifeguarding in her teen years. All the time in leotards, swimsuits, and later, wetsuits, made swimwear a perfect fit for her first design project. She’s become famous for her often-copied scalloped-edge swimsuits and her bright, feminine sensibility.
