Rio Fashion Week: Sexy Bikinis and Tropical Designs

The Four Best Shows of Rio Fashion Week

Posted on 6th June 2012 | Rio Fashion Week Spring 2013

Rio Fashion Week has ended, but its trends and innovative visions are here to stay. Check out the new collections of some of the very prominent Brazilian designers to see for yourself what Rio brings to the world of fashion.

Rio designers are known for their extensive beachwear collections. Here are some of the Brazilian top brands and their fashion visions for spring 2013.

Alexandre Herchcovitch

Skulls are one of Alexandre Herchcovitch's most familiar trademarks. His spring 2013 collection included a few skull motifs, but this time it wasn't at the heart of the show. This time around, the talented Brazilian designer implemented chic cuts of bleached denim and dresses in the color of tea-stained maps of yore, high-waisted skirts and much more. Unlike other Brazilian designers, Herchcovitch decided not to present swimsuits, but rather gorgeous light and summery outfits.


According to many fashionistas, the Sao Paulo based label Triya held one of the greatest shows at Rio Fashion Week. Fox News wrote that “many of Triya’s offerings looked like what you might get to wear to an ultra-chic beachside rave thrown by a billionaire.” Lovely patterns of blue, purple and violet along with great accessories turned this new collection into a real fashion celebration.


One of the great things about Lenny's show was the perfect flow in which one look led to the next. Tropical and floral prints dominated the catwalk, but unlike many other shows, Lenny introduced prints that seem more like 80's graffiti. Lenny's new collection was innovative, inspiring and most of all – full of sex appeal. If you are looking for new beachwear, check out this exotic Brazilian fashion house.

Maria Bonita Extra

The problem with fashion weeks is that sometimes you feel like you see the same things from the same brands. Luckily, in the Maria Bonita Extra fashion show this wasn't the case. The Brazilian brand managed to set the bar high and presented a marvelous collection of swimwear and beachwear. The new collection implements some of the greatest summer trends – head to toe prints, pastel meets neon and hyper constructed hips. In addition, Maria Bonita Extra managed to turn the high-waisted bloomer into a ready-to-wear spectacle.
