About the brand
Swimwear with spirit. Handmade in Rio, crafted from Brazilian fabrics.
Designer Luca was born and raised in Rio De Janeiro, and educated in the UK. She noticed that
Brazilian brands were becoming increasingly expensive, whereas designs in the UK were unflattering
with thin fabric. She saw a space for swimwear made from top quality material, that’s cut to flatter.
Luca Nua was born.
The manufacturing process hasn’t changed since day one. Luca continues to work with the same
four seamstresses and personally sources the thread, elastic and fabric from the best local suppliers
in Brazil. She spends days perfecting her ideas with them, lunching on rice and beans, coconuts and
the latest novella updates. A truly Brazilian scene – the essence of the brand.
Each piece is designed with pinch free sides for a smooth silhouette, and vibrant prints to brighten
your mood - before the holiday even begins. The bare (nua) necessities for the spontaneous and
light-hearted, Luca Nua mirrors the relaxed confidence of Brazilian women. Enjoy.
