Janine Robin Women's French Swimwear - Byzance Bikini with Exclusive Artwork

Dissatisfied with the quality of generally available offerings, Joelle and I decided to seek out Europe's best makers of swimwear. After a year of investigation and testing, we are finally satisfied that we have found them. We are proud to be part of the U.S. premieres of the best women's and men's swimsuits of Janine Robin, France's premier swimwear house and Cesare Paciotti, the reknowned Italian designer. Family businesses similar in many respects to our own, the helm of J.R. is lovingly guided by the grandson of the firm's founder; Cesare Paciotti is the son of the founder. Unlike most "French" and "Italian" lines, Janine Robin and Cesare Paciotti are actually made in France and Italy respectively.

< Janine Robin Byzance Bikini

In addition to JR for gents, we are pleased to offer the fine 100% Egyptian cotton bathing suits - and coordinating terrycloth tops - of Milan's Villa DelMitia. Another small family firm, owner Darius rides herd over every aspect of the work. Most interesting is that rather than an uncomfortable nylon mesh, all of the linings in the men's suits are of 100% cotton mesh. Kiss that "sticky feeling" goodbye forever.

Janine Robin and Kabbaz-Kelly's CustomShirt1:
A Story of Two Families

Janine Robin was founded in 1948 by the grandmother of the current generation of the Tiba family. Back then she made swimsuits in the basement of her Paris shop where she sold them on the floor above, a labor of love which continues today under the watchful eyes of her grandchildren. The Kabbaz-Kelly tradition of creating top quality clothing was begun by Kabbaz's great grandmother in her Paris atelier. Kabbaz' grandmother, Lucia, continued the family heritage, first in Beirut, then back in Paris where, in 1935, she designed a corset called Scandal which became the rage of the town.

Sponsored by philanthropists Sara and Gerald Murphy - models for the couple in F. Scott Fitzgeralds's Tender Is The Night, Lucia emmigrated in 1938 to Manhattan and, later, East Hampton. Her textile designs became a Park Avenue standard; her clothing and jewelry regularly in the repertoire of Bergdorf's and Lord & Taylor. Similarly, the 1960's saw Janine Robin move their workrooms to Gironde in the Southwest of France and join together with famous corseterie Le Furet, widely known as one of the world's finest. Though corsets disappeared in the '70's, the knowledge and talent gained from creating one of the most difficult garments did not.

Today as Kabbaz and Kelly continue to create exclusive designs in furnishings, accessories, and clothing - enhanced by Kelly's lifelong experience in knitting, Janine Robin uses more than a half-century of knowledge to create the world's finest swimsuits and, more recently, has renewed their forward-looking line of exquisite lingerie. Surely the Tiba, Kabbaz, and Kelly families lay claim not only to quality traditions and creative experience, but also to a unique partnership for the new Millennium.

Cesare Paciotti's Pop Dots String Bikini The Classic in Sexy Beachwear
   
     

About

Cesare Paciotti’s profound attraction and love for clothing was born right at home as his parents, Cecilia and Giuseppe Paciotti, owned a local shoe factory that manufactured high-end shoes. After University at Bologna's prestigious DAMS, he took over his parents’ business and launched his first collection with a unique taste that he decided to simply name Cesare Paciotti. Paciotti’s innovative ideas and provocative designs have earned him tremendous recognition worldwide.

Now having moved beyond shoes, Paciotti has launched a remarkably stunning, best-of-class clothing line ... 100% of which is Made in Italy. We are pleased to premiere the first of his striking top-quality women's swimwear collection here in the U.S.
