maison miel melba™


MIEL MELBA is a swimwear and lifestyle brand that is committed to providing sun protection by using anti-UV fabrics. The brand, founded by Sophie Boulhaut and Anne Schulz, offers buttery-soft and body-hugging garments that are suitable for women, men and children.

The permanent collection, THE GARDENIA COLLECTION, blends romantic and sportswear inspirations using simple, body-shaping designs in delicate fabrics that offer a matt, satin or second-skin effect. The Gardenia Collection unites earth, air and water in a visual panorama of southern flowers, wild woods and luxurious waters.
Each piece has been UPF 50+ tested by the French Textile and Clothing Institute (IFTH) according to the international reference of the Australian/New Zealand Standard ® (AS/NZS 4399:1996).


The Cut
This cloakroom features slim and second skin styles, working both in effective shaper cuts, resolutely aesthetic but still functional and high-performing for sport practice.
The cuts have shapewear virtues.

For the woman, the covered, basic or romantic 1piece swimsuits with piquant details, wavy ruffles, ribbed tippings meet wild bikini sets and chic and globetrotter basics.
For the man, fitted-tops are anchored in a retro and athletic look, adorned with elegant Tunisian collars and together with minimal shorts or surfer boardshorts. 

In addition, leg protects designed in tonal fabrics and colors are some possible accessories to match with sun exposure or fresh summer nights.

MIEL MELBA overplays the shock of textures in a stylistic
approach. The smooth skin, moss stitch and lurex fabrics
feature mattes, washed out or satin shades, the velvet touch-
chain stitches, selected among the best fabrics from the Finest
swimwear trade, overlap, echo and contribute to develop
inspired and relevant patchwork looks

The shimmering textures are visually seducing and rejoice with other qualities: softness and warmth adhering perfectly to the skin.

The Colorama
The range of colours are a journey through the senses evoking sugary, radiant, earthy and honey-like sensations that are drawn from personal experience and time spent in Asia and South America.

The pieces oscillate between bluish tones and other mineral shades:
Blu Bahia, Blu Latte; sensual and piquant colours, such as Sunset Bae, Red Camelia; pastels such as Mimosa Dream, Blu Latte; creamy white, Marshmallow and deep, wild green and iridescent shades such as Matcha Cream, Green Jungle and Green Lurex.
