Barbara Palvin On Summer Beach Essentials & Starring in Calzedonia’s New Swim Campaign


Barbara Palvin On Summer Beach Essentials & Starring in Calzedonia's New Swim Campaign

By Nicole Schubert | May 23, 2019 | People

Nothing says nonstop glamour and beachside beauty more than top supermodels. And this summer, this new-to-the-crop bombshell is strutting more than just sexy lingerie and effervescent wings, but high fashion and on trend bikinis with her new campaign with Calzedonia Swimwear.


Barbara Palvin, the 25-year-old Hungarian model who has recently taken over the international fashion circuit, is inspiring women to be daring with a bathing suit line that’s covered in wildly groovy prints, mixed with delicate and feminine silhouettes. So as summer draws closer, Ocean Drive sat down with Palvin to hear more about her campaign with Calzedonia, her go-to swimsuits of the season, and her must-have beach accessory that she can’t live without.

Barbara, you recently starred in your second campaign with Calzedonia. What have you enjoyed most about working with the brand?
BARBARA PALVIN: Working with Calzedonia has been so much fun. The suits are amazing which makes my job easier to look and feel good! Shooting in the Bahamas also makes it really special.

Do you have any favorite pieces from the SS19 swim collection?
BP: I am really loving the neon colors and animal prints for summer, so I would have to say the pink and green cheetah one-piece. It is fresh and fun! For a more classic style, I would choose the black one-shoulder bikini since it is an updated take on a great basic.


If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
BP: Diplomatic.

What should every woman try at least once in her life?
BP: Accept themself and love themself. You only have to do it once, but it lasts for the rest of your life!

And as we approach the summer season, what’s your go to beach accessory?
BP: Ice cream.
