Fernando Cozendey’s aim is to recreate and reinvent classic beachwear in elastic fabric with LYCRA® fibre, fusing the beachwear DNA to a non-obvious universe. Fernando’s designs focus on differentiated shaping and finishing and constant research on stretch fabrics.

The technique of ‘Trompe-L’Oeil’ is used, with humor, suggesting the three-dimensional in the two-dimensional plane. Another technique widely used is a patchwork with plain fabrics of different colours, creating the illusion of prints.
