Trends from Brazil's Summer 2013 Runways

Brazil is a mecca for swim fashion. Because Brazilian designers are in the southern hemisphere their summer season is a little ahead of ours and have just showed their summer collections for 2013. Here are a a few trends from the shows and a taste of what we may be seeing at Swim Fashion Week in Miami very soon!


At shows like Agua de Coco, Blue Man, Adriana Degreas and Movimento, bikinis and monokinis featured daring cut outs.


It looks like the fringe trend is here to stay for 2013. Fringe adorned bikini tops as well as cover-ups at shows like Triya and Adriana Degreas.


Agua De Coco, Triya, and Movimento gave one and two pieces in their collection a RTW look with billowy tops, proving more fabric can actually equal more sexy.


Pineapple, palm tree, butterfly and palm frond prints adorned many pieces on the Rio and Sao Paulo runways. Cia Maritima's collection, especially, was full of lush tropical prints and we cannot wait to see what they show in Miami!
