Brazil's top designers put the sizzle into summer

18 JUNE 2007

Latin America's biggest catwalk event, Sao Paulo Fashion Week, is the place to catch an early glimpse at the sexiest beach-wear styles for summer 2008. Among Brazil's best-known swimwear labels debuting designs was Triton, which had apparently taken inspiration from Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie in presenting a hip hop cool collection.

High-waisted shorts, already this year's must-have, were embroidered with the words Just Delicious and teamed with tiny pink crop tops or cross-over bikini tops in electric pink. Leopard-print, oversized sunglasses and perilous platforms added to the ghetto-fabulous themes.

Over at Pako Pano, colourful prints were key for both one-pieces, bikinis and sundresses. But there were also some strikingly simple creations such as a black bikini - again with a cross-over top - with stand-out white embroidery. And at Agua de Coco - modelled by Brazil's top models such as footballer Ronaldo's former flame Raica de Oliveira - luxurious, cut-out swimsuits in deep sapphire mingled with moss green bikinis and botanical print kaftans.
