Banana Moon combines French chic with West Coast California style and the brand speaks to a carefree life on the beach. The swimwear was launched in 1984 when husband and wife team Daniel and Veronique Flachaire and Bernard Donati met a young designer living in California, Nat Maori.
Their multicultural backgrounds and combined talents created the remarkable fusion of European quality and know-how with Californian style and creativity. Bold, playful, youthful designs set Banana Moon apart from more traditional brands with colourful, floral prints, tropical fruits and foliage.
Production is based in Principality of Monaco where the company employs about 100 people. The quality of materials and workmanship is exceptional. Using exclusively European swimwear fabrics and Mediterranean manufacturers, pieces are designed and made locally, using both modern and traditional handicraft techniques.
