For the northern summer of 2021, Code 22 took their latest swimwear collection, model Jose Davvo, and photographer Joan Crisol to the rooftop pool of the Axel Hotel in Madrid for this fun, stylish and sexy shoot.
“Our inspiration was clear. We needed an urban feel as not everybody lives near the beach. So we looked for the coolest rooftop pool in downtown Madrid,” said Code 22 owner Michel Messarra. “The Axel hotel has the best bar terrace, a pool with the hottest views of Madrid, not to mention the ambience around the pool. We found Jose Davvo which we knew was exactly what we needed as he portrayed perfectly what the brand was about!”
“The session was absolutely fantastic as Jose Davvo gave it all in every photo and was super cool about experimenting with new poses and concepts! Joan, as always, guided us all as through this while spreading good vibes,” said Messarra.
All Code 22’s swimwear briefs and swim boxers use Power Shape technology, which consists of a removable cup that gives a rounder and fuller shape where it counts. All Code 22’s swim shorts use pour Curl-Up technology that allows a relaxed or rolled up position, which is ideal for sunbathing as the tan lines will be much smaller.
Some of Code 22’s Summer 2021 swimwear range are made with metallic-look fabric. This high-gloss thread gives the metallic effect, which means the shine will never fade.
