Former beachwear model, Melissa Odabash decided to launch her own brand of swimwear for women and girls aged 4 to 14. Her chic style is reflected in the choice of prints, the quality of the materials and the feminine designs. The designer has invented a glamorous and sophisticated line composed of one-piece swimsuits, bikinis, embroidered shorts and UV-proof T-shirts. Melissa Odabash swimsuits are an ode to the sea.
Melissa Odabash launched her eponymous brand in 1999, drawing on her experience as a swimwear model. After years of rubbing shoulders with the best brands, she was still looking for the perfect swimsuit... and decided to make her own. Odabash began by developing a collection for women, and then did a version for children. It was an instant success. Her chic style immediately evokes the most incredible beaches in the world combining the glamour of St Tropez, Saint Barth with its jet-setters, and Formentera with its wild beauty. Melissa Odabash used all her savoir faire for her children's line. Stunning fabrics that dry quickly, fun extras like a reversible swimsuit, and swimwear designed for before and after swimming. The prints oscillate between paradisical flowers, stars, timeless paisley, stripes or even gorgeous solid colours. There are lots of details on these swimsuits such as ruffles, crossover backs, embroidery and more. Melissa Odabash wanted to create timeless swimsuits for children that didn't look like anything else out there. British Vogue has called her swimwear the "Ferrari of swimsuits". Celebrities also love them. Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, and Beyoncé are big fans.
