A little story about Scaphandre and our beginnings...
[Pronounced: SCA-FON-DRE – French for diving bell]
Established in 2010, Scaphandre was launched with a solid ambition: to produce a meticulously crafted luxury swim short collection made from the finest high performance quality fabric, cut impeccably with an equally feel-good and flattering fit.
The result was a uniquely refined swim short collection that was the ultimate blend between quality and comfort, elegance and relaxation. Beyond this however, the designer wanted to offer a little more to the swimwear market. Scaphandre swimshorts were also to feature distinctive individual designs by the way of embroidered motifs and high end detailing, thus furthering the elevated offering and the durable aesthetic of the brand’s designs. It’s all of these qualities that today are synonymous with the Scaphandre brand, including the accessories and the expanded apparel range which goes beyond swimshorts and includes leisurewear, tracksuits and linen shirts.
Scaphandre was initially designed in Paris, where the brand’s Mallorquin founder spent over 10 years working with renowned luxury fashion houses, later moving base back to his beloved Mallorca where in 2018, Scaphandre opened it’s first boutique in Puerto Andratx. Taking cues from the founder’s deep sea diver ancestors, Scaphandre’s spirit encompasses a lifestyle that surrounds everything travel, discovery and adventure, making a collection worthy of any seaside lover, daredevil... or gentleman.
A STRICT HIGH QUALITY STANDARD
The Scaphandre collection is made in Europe, each product stressing high-quality materials and craftsmanship all imbued with a focus on well cut, timeless and flattering design.
Our swim shorts are made from quick drying microfibre fabric that is salt water, chlorine and sunlight tested.
EASY-WEARING YET VISUALLY ENGAGING
Stylish without being subject to the vagaries of seasonal fashions, Scaphandre’s striking, deceptively simple embroidered designs, witty edge and wide color offerings cater to all tastes and generations.
BEACH TO BAR
Scaphandre’s 100% linen shirt colour offering runs a versatile gamut of colours that adapt to all styling preferences and any occasion. Each shirt is pre-laundered for a softer quality so you will feel as good as you look.
INFORMED & WELL-CRAFTED
Made with impeccable cuts and a devotion to premium materials and detailing, the Scaphandre collection offers a complete summer essentials wardrobe; timeless sophisticated pieces with a designer twist.
DESIGN MEETS FUNCTIONALITY
Notable details such as the silver alloy drawstring aglets in the shape of historic deep sea diver helmets and the back pocket patch, designed as a water dispersing apparatus (after underwater descent), offers function while giving the range a unique identity.
A PURSUIT OF ELEGANCE AND FINESSE
Embroidered details and luxury hardware made as a precious jewel are a clear signature of the designer’s devotion to elevating summer essentials and extracting craftsmanship
NATIVE MANUFACTURING IS A CORE BRAND VALUE
