-- Sauipe Swimwear (pronounced Sow-eep-ay), brainchild of Los Angeles-based Brazilian Marcia Hacker, is making a splash -- both in the water and in the media –with their Summer 2009 collection of diverse swimwear and coordinating cover-ups. No less an authority on hot swimwear than Sports Illustrated magazine endorsed the line by featuring three sexy suits on some of the world’s top models in their 2009 Swimsuit Edition and three more in the highly anticipated issue’s online version.
Inspired by Costa do Sauipe, one of the most beautiful and evocative destinations in the Brazilian state of Bahia, Sauipe Swimwear reflects the rich natural beauty of Brazil’s beaches, people, and traditions. Original designs and exclusive prints play out on high quality textiles, many of which are finished with one-of-a-kind hand-beaded details. Sauipe’s ‘modified Brazilian’ cut maintains sex appeal while offering wear-ability and more coverage than the typical Brazilian bikini. The entire Sauipe collection retails through their e-commerce website, www.SauipeSwimwear.com, and ships worldwide.
Sauipe’s Summer, 2009 collection is comprised of nine groups of swimwear that explore an array of colors and textures using soft, silky fabrics. Themes include watercolors, classic prints, girlie polka-dots, and timeless black. While each piece is different, every Sauipe suit embraces their no-excess, less-is-more approach, resulting in sophisticated design. Exclusive hardware, trims and embroidering enhance Sauipe swimwear’s outer look, and no construction detail is ever overlooked: Sauipe uses only hypo-allergenic, rust-proof, heat-proof, tarnish-proof hardware, and runs tests on every fabric for durability and color consistency. Prices average $120 per suit. To see photos of the entire collection, and for additional information, visit www.SauipeSwimwear.com.
