Created by two friends as the perfect fusion between LUXURY & SUSTAINABILITY, Maarï stands for ‘Sea’ in Sardinian language and carries the honest and intense soul of the island. Authenticity shaped for the brave and strong woman that feels the sea calling and never denies it her presence.

Maria and Federica were raised on the stunning shores of Costa Smeralda, Italy and after a life spent on the waves, they grew tired of compromising on product quality and values when looking for swimwear. This is how they decided to create the most innovative and fashion-forward swimwear and resort wear that makes women shine from the inside. Salty hair and sunny smiles. Vivid beach sunsets, starry nights and breath-taking dawns. A purifying ritual that they would love to share with you through MAARÏ Conscious Collections.
“Summer is not simply a season to us. It’s a state of mind.”

Natural resources are precious and as a brand, Maarï devotes to preserving and improving the health of our oceans by using 100% eco-sustainable luxurious Italian fabrics.

“We rely on research and innovation to save our planet, a little blue dot in the universe. Our environment-friendly fabrics are selected for their highest quality, performance and wearability to give you a sophisticated comfort and a happy conscience!”

All Maarï garments are designed and manufactured with care carrying the distinctive characteristics of the Made in Italy heritage. Each Maarï swimsuit is handmade in Italy by a team of skilled artisans with over 50 years experience in the Fashion luxury industry.

Smart seams, figure-flattering Italian fabric, modern cuts, perfect fit and eternal elegance are essential to each design. Manufacture is limited as garments are created to fulfill their timeless sustainable purpose. Maria and Federica want to make sure that each MAARÏ swimsuit is unique like the woman wearing it.

One of my favorite pieces of Maarï collection is the Diana One Piece. It’s a body shaping designer cut with sinuous V neck to hip line. Seamless bonding eliminate stitch lines and create a smooth silhouette.

I am also a huge fan of high waisted swimwear bottoms. The Grace bikini pant has a playful asymmetric top cuff gently knotted on the side. Hugging ultra thin Italian fabric designed to the detail gives this bikini a romantic allure embodying the highest swimwear technique.

Paired with the Grace Bandeau Top – Thin removable neck strap, double back ties fastening for adjustable fit and lateral wire for flattering silhouette.

A feminist and independent spirit since she could remember (her childhood heroines were Pippi Longstockings and Katharine Hepburn) Daniela Degrassi found her creative outlet as a lifestyle photographer, working mainly in Northern California where she lived for 15 years before moving back to her native Italy to continue to be her autistic sister’s primary caregiver. Vegan since 2014, she found a perfect way to carry her message of compassion while celebrating her love for the wedding industry launching The Kind Bride in February 2018.
