What started as a Florentine family shop in 1921 has since turned into a global sensation. Gucci, with its famed double-G logo and green-red stripes, launched with its now-iconic leather luggage, and from there built a luxury empire that spans across everything from women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and accessories, to beauty and home. Now, designer Alessandro Michele is making waves with his quirky-cool vibes, bringing an eclectic free-for-all to the house’s signature patterns, prints and silhouettes.

I am in love with this collection. Obsessed about it!

Paula Hermanny 

ViX is named for the stunning beach city of Vitoria in Brazil, where founder Paula Hermanny was brought up and dreamed her first dreams of the style she wanted to bring to women’s swimwear. As a little girl, Paula would gaze up at the jets flying through the clear blue Brazilian sky and imagine a woman with classic, yet modern tastes – a woman who traveled around the world from Vitoria’s small, exotic, airport and turned heads wherever she went from Monte Carlo to Bali.

That woman grew up as the inspiration for ViX swimwear and Paula’s revolutionary and stunning designs. Even today as she crafts her latest collections, Paula still pictures her imaginary world traveler and, in her mind’s eye, dresses her with visions of elegance and beauty. “When i’m designing, I picture that woman, who represents everything there is about style”, Hermanny said. “One year, I might see her in St. Barts and I can picture what she’s going to be wearing and that image becomes the basis for my collection”.
Each year, Paula designs collections that honor the ViX woman. While that vision evolves, year by year, soaking in the hottest new innovations in swimwear, the ViX style remains true to its roots of timeless elegance. ViX’s trademark gold and leather accessories complement Paula’s fashion-forward interpretation of the season’s latest trends, which she studies on trips to Europe, Brazil and the world’s most sophisticated beach resorts.
For each collection, Paula melds simple, stylish lines with the latest materials and prints to create a selection unlike any other in the world of swimwear. She complements her unique swimwear with a variety of delightful dresses, accessories and intricately textured wraps. And, each year, Paula designs de ViX collection with mixing-and-matching in mind, so that each customer can collect a treasure chest of the year’s most celebrated designs that will remain jewels long into the future. The ViX woman can rest assured that she will never grow old in the eyes of fashion, as her style rides the waves of Paula Hermanny’s imagination and creativity.
