Every MITOS swimwear employs dexterity and artistry. The process takes effort and time, since the team of designers first finds inspiration through an extended research on ancient cultures, myths and traditions of the world, in relevance with other kinds of creative expression like architecture, painting and sculpture.
A complex design exercise starts, to create unique and complex patterns that will evoke and represent the collection’s artistic direction. The textile designer will then artistically ‘fill-in’ the cut-outs, with embroidered patterns.
The meaning of MITOS lies on the essence of the myth that lives behind its name and the embroidery technique it evokes. Amazing stiches and colorful threads, tangle in a unpredicted outcome, alluding to the eternal myth of Ariadne and the Labyrinth, of Theseus and the Minotaur, stressing the wonder of how a piece of thread saves a deep love and unfolds one of the strongest stories ever told in the Greek mythology.
