Mijanou is the creation of one woman’s passion to produce the most fashion forward swimwear label in Australia today. Mijanou was launched in Feb 2012 by French born designer Karen Connell. She has been the driving force behind such labels as Coco Riche swimwear and the fabulous Juliet in Stilettos. Growing up in a fashion family whilst living at infamous Bondi Beach in Sydney was where the bond between fashion and sea began for designer Karen Connell. Not only are the collections suited to the tropical Australian climate but also to exotic holiday destinations worldwide. Mijanou is glamorous, feminine and exclusive. It brings high fashion to the waters edge, whether at the beach or sipping cocktails by the pool. A Mijanou garment is one that you will feel treasure for years. Since the launch the label has had a whirlwind of successes…
Our Summer Look Book was shot by international photographer Nikos Reskos on the Greek island of Hydra. Mijanou has immense editorial appeal and has appeared in numerous high profile magazines such as Harpers Bazaar and Russh.The brand was also selected as a semi-finalist amongst 200 other Australian labels in the Launch Your Label competition and just missing out on the top 5 with a highly commended awarded. Mijanou has recently been scouted by a large distribution company in UK/ Europe/UAE, who also have the distribution rights for the iconic brands Jantzen and Sunseeker. We are currently looking to expand into the US market, where we feel Mijanou will be very successful. For more of Mijanou, please use the links below.
