Nostalgia can be triggered by the darnedest things — a bite of comfort food, a whiff of perfume, a song on the radio.
For Nadia Dayan: rear ends.
More specifically, it was a lack of proper bikini bottoms that made her miss her native Argentina. After taking private sewing classes, Dayan came up with CameloPardus, a swimsuit collection reminiscent of the body-flattering looks she’s accustomed to back home.
All suits are handmade in the designer’s South Beach studio with locally purchased Lycra in nautical stripes, comic-book cartoons, florals, and leopard print. Since Dayan designs with her clients’ diverse bodies in mind, she’s drawn to a variety of styles: pinup, flat lace, halter, bandeau (with a tie for extra cleavage), classic string, and, of course, the booty-blazing Brazilian cut.
Priced between $50 and $60, suits are one of a kind and can be custom-fit at no additional cost — an international convention we gladly welcome.
