Lido’s Founder and Designer curates her version of an ‘ItalianISSIMO’ lifestyle

Daria Stankiewicz, Lido founder

‘ItalianISSIMO’ is a way of life that engages all the senses, celebrating the quintessential charm, colour and creativity at the heart of our culture in this Bel Paese. This lifestyle serves as the ultimate source of creative inspiration for Lido Founder and Designer Daria Stankiewicz, who captures the authentic essence of Italian summers in each collection she designs for her independent swimwear label.

Daria is one of our close collaborators here at ISSIMO, and it was a pleasure to work together again recently when creating our latest Slim Aarons-inspired ISSIMO X Lido capsule collection. We love Daria’s eye for colour and detail, her approach to creative storytelling, and the inspiration she takes from Italian culture, artists, designers and special places across the country. Let’s see how Daria curates her version of an ‘ItalianISSIMO’ lifestyle, which is also inspired by unforgettable summer days she has spent at one of her favourite seaside escapes, La Posta Vecchia.

“I love La Posta Vecchia. Rome is my favourite city in the world, and when I'm there, I enjoy escaping to La Posta Vecchia to relax and breathe in some sea air and energy. It's close to the city yet feels wonderfully secluded. The setting is absolutely beautiful and elegant, with an ancient feel,” Daria says.
