  • Ancient Greek Sandals, 10 Corso Como

  • Borsalino hat

Eres offers some of the most understated swimwear available, with sharp cuts, sleek lines and a sublime colour palette. Since the brand first opened in Via Sant’Andrea, it has become a Milanese favourite.

Gio Moretti
Gio Moretti is the place for glamorous dressing in Milan, and, in the summer, also for glamorous beachwear. Among the selection, we spotted Babajaan, the ultra-sexy, London-based, Brazil-inspired beach collection.

Emilio Pucci
Pucci has always been a destination for sports and leisure dressing, from ski to sea. Pucci’s prints, including this season’s embroidered poolside pieces, have reinvented the pareo, swimsuit and caftan in a new fashion language.

Etro’s paisley prints are a bohemian beachwear alternative. The brand’s caftans and pareos, as well as its impressive accessories, are scene-stealers.
