Ella Moss® clothing and swimwear reflects hip, fun, and quirky designer Pamella Protzel, an LA girl at heart. From daily after-school trips to Beverly Hills and Parisian flea market excursions, Protzel has always been inspired by art, fashion, people, and traveling. A true style prodigy, at 27, Protzel has already established Ella Moss as one of the hottest, fastest-growing collections within the contemporary arena.
During college, Protzel's stylist friends raided her closet for her handmade T-shirts and prized vintage pieces to take on photo shoots. It was then that she realized fashion was her true calling. Transferring from Pasadena's Art Center as a graphic design student, Protzel arrived at The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles without knowing how to make a pattern. As a gifted artist, she started drawing the silhouettes and loved learning how to make her designs come to fruition.
Rather than a scientific approach to fashion design, Protzel relies on her discerning eye and intuition, working with her hands, cutting up T-shirts, and experimenting with different dyes and fabrications for each piece. Known for bright color palettes, simple shapes, and tonal stripes, Ella Moss strikes a delicate balance of being edgy and vintage, without being over-the-top trendy. Everyone from young, downtown trendsetters to hip mothers covets the Ella Moss collection.
Bikinis, tankinis, and one-piece swimsuits are all cut to flatter the feminine figure. So, whether time under the sun is spent by the pool or on a sandy shore, there's a piece that's right for the occasion. When it's time to leave the water behind, Ella Moss boasts fabulous cover-ups in a variety of silhouettes. Eye-catching rompers, pants, and shorts are all ready to keep the fun times going!
