So De Mel is an independent resort/boutique swim and beachwear lifestyle label offering a selective mix of functional fits and modern cuts. Each piece is crafted with unique details and made from the highest quality fabrics to last and live an endless summer lifestyle. Sonia De Mello's designs are expressed in the play of shape and body form. She translates these shapes into swimwear styles that offer exquisite functionality and timeless silhouettes.

A believer in the sensuousness of classic style, Sonia creates swimwear that is both cosmopolitan and highly wearable, to fit most women of all shapes.

A Brazilian native based in California, she honed her design skills through a journey of curiosity, exploration, and a life spent soaking in the sun and seas around the world. 

Since launching her swimwear label in 2008, Sonia has continued to evolve her unique style, now with an international following.
