From Montauk to Biarritz, every style savvy beach goer and pool hopper swoons when they spot the signature scallop suit by Marysia. Timeless prints paired with perfectly executed silhouettes in premium fabrics are the vision and creation of Maria Dobrzanska Reeves, former ballet dancer and surfing enthusiast. Loved by everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to The Laundress Co-Founders, we wanted to know the inspiration behind this iconic suit and dive deeper into Maria’s passions from her family to surfing in Barbados to The Laundress Delicate Wash!
