Swimsuit season is wrapping in other parts of the US (eh hem New York)–make your way to the Hamptons Now! But, the sunshine state of Miami stays strong year-round, which is perfect for Poko Pano’s new Summer 2015 collection, which was shown at Mercedes Benz Swim Week in Miami. The new collection embodies Rio de Carnival meets Miami and launches at a perfect time, as Brazil celebrated this years FIFA World Cup. “I wanted to translate the joy and pride that one feels to be Brazilian, especially with the many history-making activities taking place in our backyard,” says Robba. “By capturing that passion, we will be sure to leave a memorable mark in the hearts of onlookers.”
The overall collection is inspired by the country’s spirit including its history, nature and religion, which are reflected through the prints of fruit, amulets, flowers as well as the season’s vibrant colors. Expanding the apparel line this year to include skirts, pants and kaftans, Poko Pano returns with its signature bikini and one-piece silhouettes in high quality Lycra®.
This year, GG Gatsby joined the team to create an effortless sleek and sultry hairstyle. Paired with bronze, dewy makeup courtesy of Beauty Schools of America, the models were picturesque walking the iconic pool of The Raleigh Hotel, South Beach with Miami’s sun as the backdrop.
It’s time to book a cruise. Swimsuit style at its finest!
