Paris

with

love


“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo. Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic. Nothing is more sublime.” Victor Hugo

The city of lights, of love, Hemingway’s movable feast, the fashion capital where the houses of Dior, Chanel, and Saint Laurent call home. It’s also a city entwined with beautiful, quiet, and traditional streets filled with small wonders that easily look so perfect as movie-sets. Impossibly chic Parisians go on with their lives, while the romantics from all around the world travel there to find and fill themselves with love, drama, and magic. Our collection, inspired by the beauty of this magical city, comprises maillots and bikini separates, some of them with geometric themes based on Parisian architecture and others based on our favorite images. We walk on Pont des Arts where lovers affix their love padlocks, fall in love with I. M. Pei’s Louvre Pyramid at dusk, and feel hopeful when the Eiffel Tower lights up the summer night sky. The collection is classic, romantic, and tastefully sexy.

About Us Papeete is a Hong Kong-based swimwear brand, which launched its first collection in 2013. It offers a line of elegant and contemporary swimsuits for women who desire and deserve glamour and comfort. Each collection is inspired by wondrous places in the world. Each piece is carefully designed to complement the individuality of one’s beauty, and made with premium microfiber fabric for maximum comfort. Lulu and Jen are co-founders and designers of Papeete. They are professional dreamer-revellers, who melt with new discovery of anything bright, beautiful, romantic, and energizing. Having returned to Asia after many years abroad, they found limited choice in swimwear with little between European luxury brands and mass market fast fashion. Papeete was conceived to fill this gap by offering a line of swimsuits that focus on complementing one’s natural curves.
