It all started with a swim cap...
The old swim cap... An ugly piece of plastic that makes you look like a jelly fish and marks your skin for hours. And how do you put it on anyway ?
EC has been an enthusiast fitness swimmer for more than 20 years. There is no doubt in her mind that water sports are the best. Exercising in water tones up the muscles and massages your whole body. It also offers a much needed respite in a hectic daily schedule.
She would love spreading the swimming gospel and convert to the cause legions of new followers. But it seems she could never find an apparel that is performant, comfortable and chic. Why do swimwear manufacturers constantly overlook comfort and grace ? Why would you accept to be frumpy/dowdy when your body is the most exposed? NEVER GIVE UP ON STYLE!
In 2014, Emmanuelle wants to bring her experience to the market. She starts her own company, CARDO Paris, which designs and market swimwear and swim-related accessories. Her ambition is to combine performance and elegance.
EC wants her customers to have the best swimming experience possible. Emmanuelle pays attention to every detail. She seek to design her own dream swimsuit. Comfort : the suit uses high density, double layered fabrics to retain body heat. No labels with itchy stitches. Labels are printed directly on the fabric itself. Elegance: black shaping fabrics sculpt a perfect figure.
The swimsuit is designed to be a second skin and to make you feel like the mythological Naiad. Precisely, the Naiads is a professional synchronized swimming team performing across the world. They have been devoted testers and brand ambassador since the beginning.
Today, CARDO Paris is proud to offer a comprehensive range of comfortable, performant and elegant swimwear and swim related accessories : swimsuit, swim cap, towel and waterproof ballerina shoes. We are already looking forward extending our collection spurred by our motto: NEVER GIVE UP ON STYLE!
