Their simple and refined designs are inspired by the casual elegance of the Mediterranean. They use 100% linen for all their pieces, making them comfortable, elegant and easy to wear.

Antoninias create luxury beachwear and ready to wear collections. The brand's mission is to empower women and make them feel comfortable in their own skin.
Their swimsuits are made of ECONYL®, a regenerative and infinitely recyclable material made from nylon waste that would otherwise pollute the Earth.

The whole ethical production takes place in Slovenia, where they work with traditional artisans who handmake each piece with great attention to details.

Her shoes and accessories are timeless, original and comfortable, blending craftsmanship and innovation in her designs.
