Maria Dobrzanska Reeves

Putting a minimalist, luxe aesthetic and impeccable fit at the forefront of her designs, Polish-born designer Maria Dobrzanska Reeves has created a boutique swimwear brand that epitomizes poolside style. The line, launched in 2009, eschews trendy prints and typical cuts for perfectly executed silhouettes in premium fabrics.   A former ballet dancer and surfing enthusiast, she has created a totally modern style that’s always fresh and effortless.  Her bikinis, cover-ups and maillots can be seen on the beaches of Montauk to Biarritz.

Marysia attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles and later landed an internship with Milly.  Between school, her work with a successful design house, and the eclectic vibe of her downtown neighborhood, she logged plenty of time sketching, designing and honing her signature style.  A brand of international critical acclaim, the New York-based label has been featured by the likes of American Vogue and Style.com and is currently stocked in leading international boutiques including Moda Operandi and shopbop.com.  Marysia shares a New York City apartment-slash-studio with her husband and two daughters.
