The swimwear we carry and that were featured in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition are as diverse as they come!
Agua de Coco 2011 is inspired in Brazil's 17 Heritage Sites listed by UNESCO - places or properties that are considered to have unique and universal value to the world. And the swimsuits in the collection are a perfect expression of that!
Continuing our coverage of Sao Paulo Fashion Week's swimwear shows last week, we now take a look at Agua de Coco's 2011 collection. Inspired by the World Heritage sites currently distributed among 17 locations in Brazil, swimwear designer Liana Thomaz's compositions beautifully explored the historic sites in graphics, cutouts, folds, drapings and braids. The theme was masterfully executed by Agua de Coco's creative team, conveying an urban flair to the pieces that is distinguished and very sophisticated. Click for the full review!
The Agua de Coco 2010 Winter Collection has just launched, mixing nature-based elements in earthy tones with glamorous fabrics and silhouettes - resulting in a tropical collection with a chic twist! Swimwear designer Liana Thomaz and her team utilized coconut trees, diverse foliage, stripes and safari elements in the prints, along with a vibrant palette rich in green tones, cherry red, turquoise and the ever-present black and white shades. The campaign was shot in Fortaleza, in the northeastern part of Brazil (also the city where Agua de Coco is headquartered). Brazilian top model Juliana Imai stars in the romantic campaign, beautifully photographed by Eduardo Rezende.
We're so pleased to let you know about the newest addition to our designer swimwear collections: Agua de Coco by Liana Thomaz! We've just received amazing pieces from the Agua de Coco 2010 Summer Collection and we are absolutely in love! Below is a sample of some of the striking pieces we've got:
Agua de Coco has outdone itself for their 2010 collection, with nothing but drop-dead gorgeous suits and a highly visually-impacting campaign to go with it. For the collection, swimwear designer Liana Thomaz got her inspiration from Thailand and the Oriental Riviera, with all its rich colors and architecture. The result is a very unique and glamorous collection, with a lot of differentiated texture such as intricate drapery, braided, twisted fabric and beautiful gold accents based on local roots, which render an instant glam effect on all of her creations.
