Attending photo shoots might become routine for some designers, but, for Nicole Di Rocco, a session in 2009 will be something that she remembers forever. That’s because the photo shoot took place in Cuba after she had dreamt of traveling with her parents to visit their homeland for her entire life. The bikinis and bathing suits she creates for Nicolita Swimwear, which she opened in 2003, show that her romanticized vision of Cuba in the 1940s has a constant influence on her design style. Bright colors, ruffles, and old-fashioned elements such as high waists bring retro styles to today’s beaches. The swimwear collection also includes one-piece suits and tankinis, cover-ups, and a handful of men’s board shorts.
