Just in time for summer, female-founded Italian brands M. Gemi, known for their handcrafted shoes, handbags, and accessories, and Cosabella, a luxury lingerie brand known for its exceptional fit and bespoke lace, announce their inaugural collaboration. Set to launch May 2024, the complementary swimwear and sandals collection transports you to the Italian seaside. 

With a shared commitment to their Italian heritage and craftsmanship, M. Gemi and Cosabella aim to preserve century-old traditions while offering accessible luxury that celebrates and uplifts each wearer. 

The M. Gemi × Cosabella collection can be shopped exclusively at with prices ranging from US$110 to US$248. The collection features two exclusive colourways inspired by the vibrancy of the Italian coastline: Sicilian Orange and Constance Blue. Additional core black, white, and sand colourways are available to cater to diverse preferences.

The collection includes a curated selection of three M. Gemi sandal styles: the celebrity-loved Matilde slide adorned with suede-covered buckles; the Positano-style Medio sandal with elegant crossover straps; and the elevated Lizza platform boasting a distinctive flared heel, embodying sophistication and style. 

Complementing the footwear offerings is Cosabella’s Vita Marina swimwear collection, crafted from an Italian performance knit designed for figure-sculpting and toning, offering subtle compression and anti-slip properties for a secure fit. Additionally, the fabric boasts quick-drying capabilities, a UPF factor of 50+, and resistance to pilling. Key products include a convertible four-way bandeau bikini top, a skirt-to-high-waist bottom conversion, and a figure-enhancing bandeau one-piece.

‘Not only do I have great personal admiration for Silvia and her family at Cosabella, I feel a strong sense of alignment in values between Cosabella and M. Gemi,’ said Maria Gangemi, founder of M. Gemi. ‘Building a brand that merges traditional craftsmanship with modern design is a challenging yet rewarding endeavour, and finding synergy with another brand that shares those values is rare, leading to an exciting and original collaboration. The M. Gemi × Cosabella collection brings together those shared values while showcasing our artisans and all the work that we do.’

‘I am incredibly excited to bring together Cosabella and M. Gemi, two brands that share an Italian artisanal legacy and a dedication to exceptional fit and luxurious quality,’ comments Silvia Campello, general manager of Cosabella. ‘The new M. Gemi × Cosabella collection brings together the best sellers and new styles of the Cosabella Vita Marina swimwear line with coordinating M. Gemi footwear options, designed to take you from the beach or pool to an elevated evening look.’
